The Punishment of Luxury (extended 12" mix)
The title track of the album is presented as an 80's-style extended 12" mix (remixed by OMD themselves) along with a non-album B-side and the single version of the track.
“’The Punishment of Luxury’ is an addicting jolt of bright ’80s synthpop, replete with Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys’ pristine harmonies. As sugary sweet as it all is, however, there’s something ominous in its allure, rumbling down there in the lower end of the mix. It’s a reflection of the song’s themes about the false sense of happiness our consumption culture has given us” – consequence of sound. we recommend this for fans of lcd soundsystem, kraftwerk, and pet shop boys.
