Fresh from recording the unfashionable but lovable 'From A To B' New Musik opted for a more refined, less pop-orientated follow-up in 1981. 'Anywhere' spawned no top 40 hits whatsoever compared to the three on its predecessor. In truth the songs on offer lack immediacy but songwriter Tony Mansfield was beginning to understand the need for space without sacrificing the need for tunes; an attempt at longevity which ultimately failed sadly. One-worded song titles dominate with 'Areas', 'Churches', 'Traps' and 'Division'; there's an air of isolation to these records indicating that they weren't swayed by the influx of the New Romantic regime. 'This World Of Water' and 'Luxury' evoke a sense of despair, debunking materialistic society whilst being retained in a pop framework. Working as a quasi-concept album New Musik's glimpse of the future is an ultimately bleak one yet Mansfield's lightness of touch ensures a pleasant ride.
