Following his revisit to the synth pop duo's debut album Happy Families last year, Neil Arthur looks back over 13 other top albums from his past


Brian Eno - Here Come The Warmjets
The production and production values are phenomenal. This is a non-musician working with incredible musicians. Eno had one of the most underrated pop voices. He's just got a brilliant voice full stop. I absolutely love this from the cover on. The bitterness in some of the lyrics, it is so cynical. Me and my mate Noel used to talk about who he was talking about. Was 'Blank Frank' Eno? 'On Some Faraway Beach' is one of my favourite tracks of all time.
