I love China Crisis as well. Try "Difficult Shapes & Passive Rhythms", "Possible Pop Songs Vol 2", "Flaunt the Imperfection" and "Acoustically Yours". Try to find the english pressings if possible.

I remember seeing China Crisis live on a couple of occasions, once with Simple Minds. I first heard their music on a trip to the UK when Difficult Shapes and Passive Rhythms had just come out and was struck by how different they were from the other so-called New Wave bands of the time. Unfortunately they never seemed to have very much exposure or popularity in the US.
Difficult Shapes And Passive Rhythms, Working With Fire And Steel, and Flaunt The Imperfection are personal favorites. They also put out some remixes on vinyl that had B sides that were not on their albums. I'm not familiar with their later work, but you've already received some good recommendations in that area.
