Secrets is the eighth studio album recorded by British synthpop band The Human League. The album was well-received by critics but was a commercial flop.
Hysteria is the fourth studio album by British synthpop band The Human League, released on 7 May 1984. Following the worldwide success of their 1981 album Dare, the band struggled to make a successful follow-up and the sessions for Hysteria were fraught with problems. The album name itself is taken from the problematic recording period. Producers Martin Rushent and Chris Thomas both left the project which would eventually be finished by producer Hugh Padgham.

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, Fascination! (Remastered) The Human League.
