AllMusic Review by Jose F. Promis
Colour by Numbers was Culture Club's most successful album, and, undoubtedly, one of the most popular albums from the 1980s. Scoring no less than four U.S. hit singles (and five overseas), this set dominated the charts for a full year, both in the United States and in Europe. The songs were infectious, the videos were all over MTV, and the band was a media magnet. Boy George sounded as warm and soulful as ever, but one of the real stars on this set was backing vocalist Helen Terry, who really brought the house down on the album's unforgettable first single, "Church of the Poison Mind." This album also featured the band's biggest (and only number one) hit, the irresistibly catchy "Karma Chameleon," its more rock & roll Top Five follow-up "Miss Me Blind," and the fourth single (and big club hit), "It's a Miracle" (which also featured Helen Terry's unmistakable belting). Also here are "Victims," a big, dark, deep, and bombastic power ballad that was a huge hit overseas but never released in the U.S., and other soulful favorites such as "Black Money" and "That's the Way (I'm Only Trying to Help You)," where Boy George truly flexed his vocal muscles. In the 1980s music was, in many cases, flamboyant, fun, sexy, soulful, colorful, androgynous, and carefree, and this album captured that spirit perfectly. A must for any collector of 1980s music, and the artistic and commercial pinnacle of a band that still attracted new fans years later.

  1. Hola Lass, mira fijate que baje este archivo pero no me abre, use el link de FLAC....

    1. El archivo esta bien. Lo acabo de descargar y no hay errores. Tal vez no tienes Win RAR version 5.61 instalado. Aqui esta la captura. Tenga en cuenta que hoy vamaos a actualizar Win Rar a la versión "5.70 beta 2" después de que una grave vulnerabilidad fue descubierta ayer. Las próximas publicaciones se realizarán utilizando esa versión. Instálalo ahora para evitar problemas en el futuro.

      - Captura

  2. This one (flac at least) has been taken down - any chance of a re-up? (All this music is much appreciated by the way - there's a really good selection here).

    1. The FLAC link has been updated.

    2. Thank you Sentinel. :)
