Certainly sounds to me like 'Down In The Subway', and 'Mr. Self Destruct' are in mono.

It's not perfect, but it's the Soft Cell album I put on most regularly. Dark, unhinged, quite truly falling apart, but I love it!

I agree. I've just revisited this lp for the first time in maybe 30 years (!!!) and it's a great record. Not as extreme as it sounded at the time of release but you can see where the cracks first started to appear.
