Remote Luxury is the first compilation album by the Australian psychedelic rock band The Church, released in 1984. The band had recently signed to Warner Bros.

Remote Luxury (2001 Digital Remaster). Sing-Songs // Remote Luxury // Persia. UMG (от лица компании "EMI"); Sony ATV Publishing.

and even with their extensive catalogue, still ranks as one of their finest, easily on a par with "Starfish", or the very underrated "Hologram of Baal". I've had it for decades, and write about it now after noticing that it and its predecessor "Seance" are becoming more difficult to find unless they are repackaged sometime down the line.

Band Name The Church. Album Name Remote Luxury. Type EP. Released date February 1984. Labels Parlophone EMI Records. Members owning this album3.

The Church: Remote Luxury I see these Aussies as the wimp Del Fuegos-musically they wind up just where they want and epistemologically they go next to nowhere. All right, so the songs are quite pretty in a modernized bies kind of way-more consistently so than the '60s competition (which gives them a leg up on the Fuegos, who like the macho boys they are take on the Stones).

Remote Luxury" is both the most satisfying and important track. A "Floydian"-style instrumental, it would begin a trend that the band would, perhaps uniquely, continue on almost every album: including at least one instrumental, thereby keeping the rock instrumental alive. Ultimately, however, listening to this album (as "pretty" as it is at times), "Seance" would seem a fluke. However, perhaps in not getting that first "hit" by reverting to their earlier approach, the band was forced to reassess their direction. This album is not the most attractive from the band so far.

Shouldn't this be under compilations since it's a combination of two previously released EPs? Just curious.
