Jeopardy is the debut studio album by English post-punk band the Sound, released on 1 November 1980 by record label Korova. The album fared poorly commercially, but received critical acclaim. One single, Heyday, was released from the album. Following their 1979 EP Physical World, the band started work on a full-length album. Impressed by the rough mixes, Korova signed the group. Jeopardy was recorded inexpensively at Elephant Studios in London, and was produced by the Sound themselves and Nick. Jeopardy - The Sound.

Despite the production's rough edges, the limited budget that fostered it, and the feeling that it sounds more like several A-sides and a couple decent B-sides thrown together than a singular body, Jeopardy is a caustic jolt of a debut that startles and fascinates. Jeopardy is the first studio album by the Sound. Warner Brothers imprint Korova picked up the post-punk band on the merit of the demo cuts for what would become this album. The band recorded it in a single week on a shoestring budget, and it feels like it in the best of ways-each song plays like a live show, with no over-slick studio polishing to interfere with the immediacy of the performance. While the album and its single, Heyday, received immense praise from critics, it failed to receive the kind of popular attention that could have sent it to the top of the charts. Jeopardy Q&A.

The Sound - Jeopardy review: Youthful Nostalgia of 1980's Post-Punk Era. With a cold coffee and spare time, listening to this album was something to do. Not being overly familiar with The Sound, it was an interesting experience for me. Bands such as Echo and the Bunnymen and The Cure come to mind when listening to this album. Mainly because it does not exactly sound like them, but there are some strong similarities. I must say this album was somewhat enjoyable for myself. It brought back the nostalgia of teenage youth within the lyrics. Resistance, for example is a good example of the rebellious spirit we have as youth

The Sounds. The Sounds are an international rock band from even in a totally acoustic performance, like a lot of classical music and small group jazz, the performer has a unique perspective on what the music sounds like, beca. When first starting out, people tend to want to hear themselves as they sound when they practice or rehearse. On small stages or in small rooms, thats fairly easy to accomplish, you dont even really need monitors if everyone actually listens to everyone else in the band, and doesnt play so loud as to drown out anyone.

Poor pressing. Scratch and sturgeon noises almost inaudible. What a pity
Very Old Chap
It's not bad, but it's not great either and 'Missiles' does sound crap indeed.
Wow, I was just watching an episode of The Young Pope and they used (a nicely edited/shortened version of) "I Can't Help Myself".Excellent choice of course.Makes you wonder who chose this great song and on what basis...
If i had to chose just five bands from the time i was so young and (not so) happy, I would have some problems. There's a list of the greatest alternative bands, the A list, with a generation of nice musical outsiders later become quite mainstream rockstars, and another one, the B list, with a lot of favorite bands of mine. Here is full of guys remained in the shadow of the big success, generally described as 'cult', but in some cases quite totally ignored by the most, although with at least a record of extraordinary quality in their career. Which ones to choose? Are they from the A or the B list? And in any case, are the Sound of Adrian Borland standing in the first or in the second that I suggested? I just don't know..We live in a world so full of hidden treasures, forgotten stories from the past; a plenty of forbidden reality. There must be some reasons, or perhaps not only one could explain all those..But what i'm just fuckin' sure I put the Sound in the top five of the best newave bands ever; and Jeopardy.. Oh my gods, Jeopardy..
Not a great pressing. Off-center, Missiles sounds weird, track 6 is on wrong side.
Scoreboard Bleeding
the most glaring issue is the obviously varying sources used for different tracks. i could swear 'missiles' is sourced from a low bitrate mp3.
Seek out the 1st press from New Zealand or the U.K. both far superior in soundstage and overall pressing quality
Absolute garbage reissue from 1972. Hopefully somebody else eventually does this one right.
Two issues with the 1972 pressing of this: - The center hole isn't cut large enough -- the records would actually spin on my turntable because it was stuck to the center post - The sticker on the record just shows a giant "1972" -- see the images above. It's just obnoxious.I'd agree to avoid 1972 releases.
U2 ripped this band for sure .... If you listen to "Missiles" is all there.
Sounds horrible, no dynnamics, no seperation, no perspektiver, no Music. Must be mastered from as if it is mastered from a low bitstream MP3
White gold
It doesn't feel like I missed this in the 80's. It feels like this album isn't stuck there. In fact "Jeopardy" feels like it was recorded 5 years too early. The vocal delivery, the guitars tone, everything is genuine, no post punk groan, recorded loud and raw. My copy is clean, quiet and cherished.
I have a copy with an exact matching sleeve, thick cut inner, matrix no.s but different centre labels that doesn't match up any any submission on here. Shall I add another release? There is no country of manufacture printed on the label, but is definitely not a modern repress.
Rising out of the post punk rubble, the first band people want to compare The Sound to is of course Joy Division, though I for one would equate them more with The Cure, mixed with that odd recording production nature of The Fall … certainly not coming off as the more harmonic Echo and The Bunnymen, or the deeply atmospheric Psychedelic Furs.It’s strange to consider that 1980 was nearly forty years ago at this point, and that my youth was drawing to end end by this period. Nevertheless, my ears have always been turned on by music, and probably always will be. The late 70’s and 1980’s were filled with great dynamic bands, just as many if not more than in the 60’s, and while The Sound represented the rebellious nature of youth, and the times in the UK from which the music rose, drawing heavily from and mixing their sound with garage rock and synthesizers, there is something about the music that just doesn’t flow from track to track in a consistent manner. That being said, when the songs came up in rotation on the radio during those years, they sounded wonderful … consider “Heartland,” coming off as being upbeat, while “Time” turns on its heels and lays out a serious side of the band. As to the instrumentation, no member steps on anyone else’s musical toes, though as I mentioned earlier, there is something in the nature of the sound of The Sound, that does not allow it to resonate as a contextual whole. Perhaps this is the production, as I said, I could never understand any of the lyrics by The Fall, figuring that that that aspect was an elemental nature to their delivery, meshing the music and the vocals to the point where they came off as one, though that aspect was not a consideration for The Sound as far as I’m concerned, it was simply scattered and unblended.There are those who will tell you that your musical collection is not complete without the album Jeopardy sitting neatly tucked in amongst the rest of your vinyl, that The Sound had a cult following in the UK that can not be ignored, though so did Alien Sex Fiend, and I know no one who ever plays more than a single side at a time from that band. Yes Jeopardy, the band’s first release does simmer with energy, though how a music critic such as Devon Powers can make the claim that “Jeopardy … bursts with fresh energy while also maintaining a startling maturity and skill.” And to Mr. Powers I said right out loud “Really, startling maturity? Maturity is developed over time, these people were mere kids finding their footing, you’re overselling what might otherwise be a nice album, and that overselling is going to do nothing but force the release to fall short. Besides, as a young person, I don’t want to think of my musical heroes as being mature, I want someone a bit less stupid than I am, someone that I can relate to.” He then went on to say that the songs haunt, blaze, rip and govern, sometimes within the same moment, that the guitars twitch like a trigger finger, that the vocals team with fury and fire, that the bass comes off as nothing short of a controlled nuclear reaction, with keyboards always in perfect colour, whether dark or luminescent, and then he goes on to string words together such as intensely dramatic, mesmerizing, quick-fire, almost inaudibly rising like smoke filling a closed room and overflowing with brilliance. And with that I wanted to take him by the collar, and say, “I get it, you’re a fan, but you’ve lost me at this point, you’re lying to me at best, even Jimi Hendrix couldn’t measure up to those exhalations. Without a doubt, the album does have a chemistry, and it is certainly fun to listen to. Jeopardy was fun thirty-five years ago, and it’s still got it’s moments today, yet the fact remains, no matter what anyone says, the band never found an audience equal to Joy Division, The Cure, The Psychedelic Furs, The Fall, or even The Gang of Four. There is nothing wrong with admitting that The Sound are not a critical piece of the puzzle from that era, that they were simply one of hundreds of other bands who had their following, but could not find a broad base or acceptance. And with all of that being said, I say to everyone, including myself, who has a vinyl copy of the album Jeopardy neatly tucked away, it’s still rather reasonable to purchase, meaning it’s not a treasure, it just is what it is, fun to listen to, but not to be taken as a religious artifact.Review by Jenell Kesler
Does not sound too bad. Turn the treble up a bit and you have got yourself a copy of a good record. "Missiles" sounds a bit muffled though. Interesting hype sticker, makes it seem as if The Sound is a cover band haha.
I haven't heard other releases of this to make comparisons but "Missiles" sound particularlry muffled on my copy too.
"Missiles" sounds awful, stay away from this bootleg.
The large mistake in this recording is that 'Heyday' appears as the sixth track on side one of the album and not as the first on side two. Or maybe I got a misprint? I don't know, but I see that on the original version 'Heyday' also is on side two.
Yep, same here. Both the cover and labels list 'Heyday' as being 1st track of Side 2, but it's actually the final track of Side 1.
This bothers me a lot! Why don't pay respect to the original record?
Same here.
Yep, mine has the, doesn't bother me that much I guess.
mine is the same!
I have an almost exact replica of this record. Same label (although the writing on the outer part of the label is a bit closer to the run out groove), front and back cover are exactly the same, same catalog number and label. The only difference is the inner sheet. It's white and the writing "We will wait / for the night / We will wait" are on the front of the sheet.Matrix number/run out:- Side 1: KODE2-LP SIDE-A-- Side 2: KODE2-LP SIDE-B-Does anybody have any information about this? By the looks of it, it seems a reissue from a couple of years ago.Thanks!
HiI too have the same copy. I agree with you that it seems the unofficial 2010 release, by exclusion of the rest. It does play rather well.
