80s Synth-Pop Duo Yaz Reunites
by Lara Pellegrinelli

July 24, 2008 - In the early 80s, Yaz was a favorite on dance floors worldwide. The duo was short-lived, but they scored multiple Top Ten hits in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Yaz is back together for it's 25th anniversary.

One of the very best electronic albums ever made. Nothing that VC has done since has quite captured the essence and soul of it and the the truly gorgeous minimalist synth arrangements...

Up there with Kraftwerk's Man/Machine in terms of importance and brilliance.
