Critics in England may have loved the Sophisti-Pop sound of Prefab Sprout and with their cerebral songwriting there was lot of positive elements to write about. They did sell some albums and had some hits (not in the U.S. though) but they never caught on to the masses who found them a little inaccessible. Those however who did try to understand them are usually glad they did.
