Strip away all the hype, controversy, and attendant craziness surrounding Frankie -- most of which never reached American shores, though the equally bombastic "Relax" and "Two Tribes" both charted well -- and Welcome to the Pleasuredome holds up as an outrageously over-the-top, bizarre, but fun Scene IV: Peronnelle - Adam De La Halle, Ensemble Perceval, Guy Robert - Le Jeu De Robin Et Marion. In truth, the album's more a testament to Trevor Horn 's production skills than anything else.
To help The Only Star In Heaven - Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Welcome To The Pleasuredome , he roped in a slew of Ian Dury 's backing musicians to provide the music, along with a guest appearance from his fellow Yes veteran Steve Howe on acoustic guitar that probably had prog rock fanatics collapsing in apoplexy.
Certainly the endless series of pronouncements from a Ronald Reagan impersonator throughout automatically date the album while lending it a giddy extra layer of appeal. Even the series of covers on the album at once make no sense and plenty of it all at once. While Edwin Starr 's "War" didn't need redoing, Bruce Springsteen 's "Born to Run" becomes a ridiculously over-the-top explosion that even outrocks the Boss.
As the only member of the band actually doing anything the whole time Paul Rutherford pipes up on backing vocals here and thereHolly Johnson needs to make a mark and does so with appropriately leering passion.
