The Human League released their iconic third album ‘Dare’ in October 1981. The album itself was hugely successful, achieving Triple Platinum status and reaching Number One in the UK album charts. To celebrate this iconic electro-pop LP, we are giving away a special remastered version of the album along with a set of Klipsch Audio S3M earphones.
The electronic nature of the album didn’t set well with everyone, but in the large part it was embraced for its forward thinking, Melody Maker‘s Steve Sutherland celebrated the fact the album would irritate the guitar-rock traditionalists as he noted, “I think it’s a masterpiece. Sure to upset some, sell to millions more and so it should the way it tramps all over rock traditions. A trite sound, a retarded glam image and a mock respect. All the appeal in the world… Dare should show up the pathetic farce of pop mythology once and for all.”
