Limited foil numbered 200 gram black vinyl LP pressing in Japanese-style re-sealable polybag. Faithfully, updated rendering of original art. Mastered for vinyl by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Manufactured for pristine sound at Quality Record Pressing. Modern English's second record, released in 1982, gave way to the band's greatest success with the breakout hit single, "I Melt With You." A marked departure from their debut just a year earlier, After the Snow was a keyboard driven new wave pop album. The album retains an atmospheric and introspective mood that resonates today. Modern English was formed in Colchester, Essex, England. Signed to the 4AD label, the band’s dark and artsy debut album gave way to a more commercial sound by the time of After The Snow.
