Side Kicks is the American version of the Thompson Twins' third album, Quick Step & Side Kick, featuring the same songs in a different sequencing. The record was the first the group recorded as a trio and, not coincidentally, it finds them discovering their signature dance-inflected synth-pop sound. The singles "Love on Your Side" and "In the Name of Love" are the high points, but it's surprising how many of the remaining songs are enjoyable, cleverly crafted and catchy synth-pop gems.
