I don't care much for the sequence between "Put the Blame on Me" and "Wide Eyed Girl," but this is otherwise a marvelous album. It took courage to return to their synthesized austerity after two albums of mullets and MORR.

Love is a temple
Love is a shrine
Buy some love at the five and dime
A little bit of love
From the counter store
GET IT ON CREDIT IF YOU NEED SOME MOOO-OH

Torn between "Beethoven" (at least half because of the video, which is still terrifying and awesome) and the title track.

Impossible to choose only. But OK, I did since I really, really had to.
I chose 'Heaven'.

insanely, it has never been released on DVD. After 25 years of wanting to see it, I finally downloaded a rip of the VHS

"I Need You" was my favorite back in the day, because it was so straightforward and acoustic, unlike any other song they'd done up to that point. Felt so raw.

But may re-listen to the album before voting.

is there a bit of Jeanne Dielman is the Beethoven video, Alf? I've never actually watched the whole thing but it seems like a possibility.

I was thinking this too but have never seen the movie as it doesn't star Jason Statham.

Title track for me. At their coldest and most magisterial. A great sad bruise of a song.

Between "Beethoven" and "Shame" for me. Hard to choose cause they push completely different buttons for me.

I was this close to voting for Put The Blame on Me, then chose Heaven instead.
