Parade (Special Edition)
Label: Parlophone UK
On this 1984 offering, Spandau Ballet honed the slick, cabana-boy soul of True and earned another smash hit in Britain. Things were different in the States, where their previous album was still riding high in the charts, taking the attention off Parade (it didn't help that the band canceled their U.S. tour). Overall, the magic is much diminished, though "Only When You Leave" and "Round and Round" still manage to climb the old conga-laden '80s pop heights of old.
