Dear members, finally, we decided to refresh our theme. Decision was brought based on multiple factors, primarily because of technical needs as old one is not compatible with a new platform version, but also because you all asked for a darker theme.
Here you go!

"Policy" was the first solo album by Martha Davis, the lead singer in the Motels. Like many of the Motels' moody hits, most of the songs on "Policy" have a melancholic feel. Standing in contrast, however, is the hopeful and climactic "My Promise". Deluxe Vinyl Replicas by Culture Factory constitute high quality reissued compact-discs which reproduce all the components of the original LPs and are their exact replicas in compact-disc size (5.3 x 5.3 inches), with authentic single or gatefold cardboard jackets and paper sleeves. In addition to the above, each compact-disc Deluxe Vinyl Replica includes a black finish CD complete with the original label to give it the look and feel of the original record album. Culture Factory strives to achieve an authentic sound with the highest possible fidelity to the original studio masters. Our remastering process brings out the music's true dynamics and original clarity with low levels of noise. In the remastering studio the audio tracks are handled in the form of high-definition, 96Kz / 24-bit digital files for greatest preservation of fidelity.

Given how popular the Motels were in the '80s, Martha Davis should have been big as a solo artist. But Policy, the singer's first solo album, wasn't the major hit it deserved to be, which is surprising because Policy isn't a radical departure from her work with the Motels. Produced by Richie Zito, Policy picks up where the Motels' final album, Shock, leaves off. Davis wrote or co-wrote most of the material, and true to form, her lyrics tend to be dark and ominous - or at least melancholy. Arguably, the Motels were a pop/rock version of film noir; their view of the world was as dark and cynical as any Raymond Chandler thriller of the '40s. And Davis' obsession with the dark side didn't end when the Motels broke up and she went solo; the haunting "Lust," the brooding "Rebecca," and other gems that she wrote or co-wrote for Policy are as dark as any of the songs on the Motels' five albums. Especially disturbing is "What Money Might Find," which takes a look at the uglier side of prostitution - not upscale call girls (whose profession should be legal), but kids who work the streets. Davis was never one to provide an abundance of happy endings, and on Policy, happy endings are few and far between. However, she surprises us on the album's last track, "My Promise," which describes a romantic relationship that is happy and fulfilling - not dysfunctional. The tune has a sweetly romantic quality, and it is certainly an interesting way for Davis to conclude the album; after so much darkness, melancholia, and disillusionment, she gives us something sweetly romantic. And it works. Anyone who savored the Motels' five albums will also find a lot to admire about Policy.
