Broadcast is the debut album from the English pop/rock band Cutting Crew, released in 1986. It reached #16 on the US charts and #41 on the UK charts. The album was released in Europe with different packaging 8 months before it was released in America. For the American version, 4 tracks were remixed ("Any Colour", "One for the Mockingbird", "I've Been in Love Before" and "(I Just) Died in Your Arms"), all of which were the singles from the album. The current American CD in print is the European version but with the American packaging. It was the first album to be released in the United States by Virgin Records' new American imprint, Virgin Records America.
In a retrospective review, Michael Sutton of Allmusic gave the album four stars. He said the album "never deserved the hacking [it] received from critics," and said that "the slick guitar rock on Broadcast may not have wowed the rock & roll intelligentsia, but it's a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, an underrated collection of simple, heartfelt love songs and up-tempo pop that reside between the stylistic boundaries of new wave and mainstream rock." He concludes the review by saying the album "is not a creative breakthrough", but is "simply an LP absent of any filler."
