The long lost Thin Red Line album emerges. This one was released between 1983’s Equinox and 1985’s Thin Red Line EP. There is also some confusion over the title of the tape, and you can see why in the scan above. The artwork says Seclusion in Paradise, while the spine says Seclusions Paradise. It seems that Seclusions Paradise is used the most, including in the song lyrics of track 2, so I am going with that. For those that don’t know, Dave White went on to form Clear and then Lung after this band released a few more tapes. Which is quite the contrast, as this is kind of laid back alternative rock. I like this style a lot, even though it’s often not that aggressive. They just do a great job writing the songs.(not review)
