Hysteria (Human League)

The melodies are often flat, the arrangements are frequently bloodless. With only a couple exceptions, Hysteria sounds exactly like an album made under extreme post-platinum pressure. If you were to replace your pick of two tracks with “Mirror Man” and “(Keep Feeling) Fascination” — which really wouldn’t sound any more out of place than “The Lebanon” — you’d at least have something resembling the group’s old standard. Fun fact: it was released three years before a very different Sheffield band’s Hysteria.
