AllMusic Review by

By the time the Thompson Twins recorded Close to the Bone, they were reduced to the duo of Tom Bailey and Alannah Currie, and they had abandoned new wave synth-pop for light funk-inflected dance-pop. Most of Close to the Bone is too sterile and predictable to be truly enjoyable, yet there are a handful of tracks that serve as a reminder that the group can turn out well-constructed and catchy pop songs when they choose.
