Dare (released as Dare! in the US) is the third studio album by British synthpop band The Human League, first released in the UK on 16 October 1981 then subsequently in the US in mid-1982. The album was recorded between March and September 1981 following the departure of founding members Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh, and saw the band shift direction from their prior avant-garde electronic style toward a more pop-friendly, commercial sound led by frontman Philip Oakey.

Album · 1981 · 10 Songs. Following the breakup of the original Human League lineup, Philip Oakey took control of the band and transformed their once-abrasive synth-pop into chart-topping hits on Dare. The band’s robotic, stylised rhythms collide with irrefutably catchy tunes on Love Action (I Believe In Love) and Don’t You Want Me, two of New Wave’s most winning singles. With layers of baroque, buzzing synths, Darkness and Do or Die delve into the band’s goth side, but the soaring Open Your Heart reveals the sensitive soul beneath their mannequin makeup. Dare The Human League.

The Human League had shown much of this on their early singles, such as "Empire State Human," but on Dare! they simply gelled, as their style was supported by music and songs with emotional substance. That doesn't mean that the album isn't arty, since it certainly is, but that's part of its power - the self-conscious detachment enhances the postmodern sense of emotional isolation, obsession with form over content, and love of modernity for its own sake
