This was the first Tony Banks album I ever heard. I was pretty excited because of how good of a writer he is. What I discovered was a very mixed and inconsistent album. By that, I mean that half of it is good and half of is not so much. The songs that Fish sing on is excellent, especially "Another Murder of a Day", which is the best song on the album. Tony does a great job of creating an atmosphere on this song, both with the chords he uses and the guitar sounds that Daryl makes. This song is worth getting the whole album. It is excellent. The other highlights are "Angel Face", "The Gift", "Still It Takes Me By Surprise". "Hero for an Hour" is also good and quite catchy. I really like the synth lines. Overall, a good album. You might have to ignore some of the weaker songs, like "Back to Back" and "I Wanna Change the Score" (despite having parts in 7/4) if you're not tolerant of pop.
