“For its fifth album, a-ha varies its style somewhat, trying for a U2 approach on lead-off track Dark Is the Night for All. This is a long way from the peppy appeal of ‘Take on Me,’ but just as far from an improvement” (Ruhlmann).
“An earlier version of Move to Memphis appeared on the compilation, Headlines and Deadlines – The Hits of a-ha” (Wikipedia), released in 1991.
“Some lyrics from Locust were reused on the…Savoy single ‘Whalebone’” (Wikipedia). Savoy was a side project launched by guitarist Pal Waaktaar and keyboardist Magne “Mags” Furuholmen during aha’s hiatus. Aha wouldn’t release another album until 2000.
