Description

The third and final Beat album, Special Beat Service has much more of a pop flavor than the band's previous efforts. At the time they were facing declining sales in the UK and were also attempting to break into the pop charts in the USA. While not as successful as their other albums in the UK (reaching a peak of only 21 in the charts), it was the most successful of the band's releases in the States everyHit.com. Due in large part to heavy play of the music videos for "Save It For Later" and "I Confess" on MTV, the (English) Beat was able to establish some true pop classics. To promote the album, the band toured the States. They parted shortly after.
