Rightfully listed in The 100 Best Australian Albums (definitive rock and pop albums compiled by music journalists Toby Creswell, Craig Mathieson and John O’Donnell), The Pleasure of Your Company features the Duffield / Freud / Kelly / Price lineup and was produced by Nick Launay.
The Pleasure of Your Company is without doubt is one of the finest Australian record releases this year. – Ashley Crawford, The Age 4 Nov 1983
The Model’s The Pleasure of Your Company (Festival Records) positively sizzles. The band’s avant grade image is still intact, although this latest release makes some concessions to the commercial market.
Its slickness is the result of the excellent work of young English producer Nick Launay, who contributed to the success of Midnight Oil’s 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 album. So it’s no wonder the first single from the album, I Hear Motion, with its strong catchy beat, innovative keyboards and suave vocals hit the national Top 10 charts.
Facing the North Pole in August is another sophisticated rock song, one that should come across well live.
Consistency is the key on The Pleasure of Your Company – all the tracks are strong and should really explode at a live concert – Maeve O’Meara, Sun Herald 15 Jan 1984
…Andrew Duffield’s keyboard playing commands attention, and the rhythm section of James Freud and Barton Price is acknowledged as one of the best.
Under the attentive ear of the English producer Nick Launay, the Models have come up with pretty exciting stuff, including some highly tasteful piano playing on the track 79AD.
It’s been said before that the Models are a certainty for popularity in both Europe and the United States. I’d say that The Pleasure of Your Company will do the trick. – Henry Everingham, SMH 31 Oct 1983
