Release Info: Alan Shearer- Mines De Son LP
Here we have the first LP from Alan Shearer, released in 1984. Generally, it follows the same vibe as his excellent sophomore release (uploaded here in case you missed it). All instrumental once again, with some surprisingly poppy moments mixed in as well. Definitely some stunners in the mix here. I can't seem to get enough of "Snapshot" or "Internal Clock." The final track even reminds me a bit of some earlier Depeche Mode moments.
Funnily enough, I agree with comments made in the last post regarding video game music, as quite a few of these tracks call the classic NES soundtracks to mind. As someone who used to hold primitive boomboxes up to the tv screen to tape various soundtracks, I mean that as a compliment!
Anyway, without any further ado, here's the info for this LP:
