Thompson Twins - Into the Gap

Thompson Twins - Into the Gap

Into the Gap is the fourth studio album by the British pop group Thompson Twins. The album was originally released on 17 February 1984 on Arista Records (worldwide). Despite a mixed response from critics, Into The Gap became the band's most commercially successful album, peaking at number one on the UK Albums Chart (for 3 weeks), and number ten on the US Billboard 200. 

Three of the four singles that were released in the UK made the Top 5 and the fourth just missed the Top 10. "The Gap" was also released as a single in some other countries, but no video was made for it. According to the RIAA, the record sold over one million copies in the US; in the UK the album sold over 600,000 copies and was certified 2× platinum. It became one of the year's biggest sellers, with five million copies sold worldwide. The band embarked on a world tour in support of the album.
