In 1985, in search of fresh inspiration, they flew to Minneapolis to record with the production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The sessions did not go well, however, with the producers and band members wrestling constantly for control. Finally Oakey pulled the band from the studio and returned them to England and it was left to Jam and Lewis to finish the album, which became "Crash".
"Human" was released as the first single from Crash and went to #1 on the US charts. An exquisite blend of pop and R&B with a timeless melody Human lodged in the pleasure center of my brain the first time I heard it and has stayed there ever since. One of true high-points of 80s pop and one of my all-time favorites.
