Product info


2023 marks the 30th anniversary of The Cruel Sea's album, The Honeymoon Is Over.

It was the album that propelled them into the stratosphere after the critical acclaim received by their first two records, This Is Not The Way Home and Down Below, in the years prior.

But in 1993 The Honeymoon Is Over blew the roof off all of the band's prior achievements. The album is accredited 3x Platinum, spent a whole year in the ARIA Top 50 chart, and was a feature in the Top 40 best-selling albums for two consecutive years from release.

The album won 5x ARIA awards from 10 nominations, and was propelled by the singles Seems Twice, Woman With Soul and Black Stick. The title track The Honeymoon Is Over, though, became an anthem for the time - and to this day is The Cruel Sea's most commercially successful recording.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary, this landmark Australian record arrives on vinyl for the very first time - a missing piece in many collections, now filled.
