Flaunt The Imperfection – 2CD Deluxe Edition
The third studio album by China Crisis – released in 1985 and produced by Steely Dan’s Walter Brecker. Flaunt The Imperfection is regarded as the band’s best album and contained the hits Black Man Ray and King In A Catholic Style.

China Crisis underwent a complete change in sound for their third album, completely ditching the heavy dub rhythms and challenging arrangements with an altogether smoother and less aggressive sound.

The overall sound is considerably prettier than before -- the placid Eno-like "Black Man Ray” is downright beautiful -- and the arrangements mix synthesizers with traditional instruments in what was for 1985 an unusually graceful way, with neither predominating.
