How often do we see artists produce their best work early in their careers? In the first flushes of youth, a band is often unaware of music critics and trends, often resulting in naive but remarkably attractive pieces of work. New Musik rode the new wave/electro-pop wave at the turn of the 80's with their own brand of highly commercial pop. Unusually for such an album - even more so for a debut - 'From A To B' is not just made up of a few singles and endless filler; it is undeniably chirpy but not in an annoying fashion. The singles - although only minor chart successes - are highly melodic and memorable with 'This World Of Water', in particular, retaining its peculiar cute charm. Revealing more depth are album tracks 'A Map Of You', 'On Islands' and bonus single 'She's A Magazine' each striking a blance between loneliness and happiness, forever dreaming of the intangible. Main songwriter Tony Mansfield later described this work as "rudimentary". A fair point, but the sounds of innocent, lost talents are captured beautifully here.
