post, and that's what made me pull it out the other day. I ripped this one from the 12" single, but it's the same as the album version. So, don't get too excited.
When I was rooting around the 'Net for the release date of the single (December 1982, by the way), I came across a post Friend of Rachel Worth from Cathedrals of Sound did a few years ago, He said "Christian" "includes a synth line that manages to be catchy but haunting at the same time and I'm not sure there is a mellower synth song from that era." Well said, sir. If you know much of China Crisis' work, this song is a fascinating listen. It's the first step in an evolution that continued for the entire decade.
