I think people on here will remember my lack of enthusiasm over this release on the EIS Forum but i tell you what this morning as i was delivering i played it and enjoyed it so much i played it again,yes i was just as shocked at this revalation
I must admit the final track still grates with me,but finally after all this time ive got it.

The Non Stop album is so different, do love most of the songs but there are some songs I'm less keen on.
It's different, more dark, more "distorted" as in style -
It's great to hear that Andy is trying different styles but it's a shame that he'd cover it up by making it another style so he wouldn't be recognised?
(Not sure where I read that but I read it somewhere)...

Regardless, I'm always open to new stuff, new styles, new genres - whatever Andy embarks on, style, he's got my support.
Am very, very, very excited about the prospect of a 3'rd solo album  

Just my 2 cents...

I think you may well be getting confused with Andy using the name Mimo as an alter ego to release the early singles
so that he got a fair go at AirPlay which seemed to work until they realized it was Erasures Andy Bell then it was back to square one.

I’ve had a day off this week doing the garden so iPod was on constantly,having played 3 Nu Shooz albums (Poolside is a classic) I decided to give Non Stop a go having not listened to it for a few years.
I’ve always found this album a strain to listen to and it doesn’t rank well in lists of Andy’s solo efforts,th final track being unlistenable to me.

What shocked me listening after all this time is that it finally after 8 years it all sounded good to me,in fact I played it twice in a row without skipping any tracks including the last one.
Shock horror,it’s taken 8 years for me to finally appreciate this album,it pains me to say I didn’t really like it but now it’s all changed and I’ve no idea why!

Ok it will never be a Electric Blue that’s the gold standard for Andy solo albums (I dont class the Torsten albums in the same category as his other solo output as it’s more theatrical a different genre to the hi-NRG disco stuff he loves) but now it’s holding it’s head up high.

Better this way than the other way round....I really like the album also, and there were coming some really nice remixes along with the singles/promos too
