3 stars This maybe pop but it is good pop, and stills retains the spirit of Split Enz, this is maintainde by Eddie Raynor's keyboards, there are some proggy tracks (penned by Eddie Raynor) such as the Coral Sea, Double Happy. Poor Boy has a certain depth to it with a slight classical sound to it. I don't think that it is a terrible as 80s Genesis, as I mentioned earlier Eddie's Keys add a link to their proggy past and adds a lot of colouring. Neil Finn was really starting to come of age in the song writing department, although his lyrics are just love songs, while Tim's are more introspective and meloncholy. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone but only after you have the proggier Enz albums. I'm giving it three stars, the songs do have depth, Eddie's keyboards rescue it from embarrassment, and Enz havn't betrayed their identity, but its non essential because most songs lack the progginess required to make it an essential release.
