Servant – Swimming In A Human Ocean – 1984

Servant went through a series of musical changes between their 1979 debut and this 1985 release. They were searching for the new wave sound and look, finding it in what looks like borrowed clothes on the album cover, complete with beret, sweaters, skinny tie and big hair.

The musical sound is the 1985 radio-friendly stuff of Starship and softer Tears for Fears sounds.

This doesn’t take anything away from them lyrically or musically but it is a noticeable change from the simple rock reachings of Fly Away and Suburban Josephine.
