'I'd Like To See You Again' was the name of A Certain Ratio's third album and the last to feature the band's original line-up. In contrast to earlier releases, this 1982 effort feels like an escape from the constraints of the glum post-punk noises which usually emanated from bands on Factory Records. Instead, the direction is informed by the sounds of the New York clubs, leading to a more danceable set of songs which has lasted the distance of twenty-plus years very well, all things considered. Make no mistake, A Certain Ratio weren't a "tunes" band; more a tight, rhythmic unit, heard to exemplary effect on 'Touch', 'Guess Who' and 'Knife Slits Water' (included in both 7" and 12" formats as a bonus on this LTM reissue). Time has also been kind to the more relaxed approach of the title track which pre-dated the jazz club movement of the mid-80s by a couple of years. The surfeit of slap bass isn't for everyone but five years into the 21st Century, much of this record could still attract a crowd on to the dancefloor.
