AllMusic wrote: “One of Scotland’s finest exports, Simple Minds deliver a strong synth-reared release on New Gold Dream. This album harks the darker side of the band’s musicianship, and such material alludes to their forthcoming pop-stadium sound which hurled them into rock mainstream during the latter part of the ’80s.”. Score: 4.5/5.

TUTV: This LP opened the gates to stardom. A dream came true.

Works faster than caffeine

6 September 2022

Scottish melodrama rockers SIMPLE MINDS led by captain Jim Kerr have
no expiration date. They started their still ongoing career back in 1977.

Along the journey they fabricated 18 studio LPs and number 19,
named Direction Of The Heart, lands on 21st October.

But FIRST YOU JUMP. Amplified guitar pop bombast, as we know it.
