3 stars A friend once told me that Tony's expression on the front cover seems to say, 'this is what I really like doing!' The contribution of Fish isn't as good as 'Another Murder Of A Day' from 'Still', but you can find the video for 'Shortcut To Somewhere' on his 'Kettle Of Fish' DVD. 'Smilin' Jack Casey' is reasonably catchy, with a chuffing train/rhythm box ending reminescent of Anthony Phillips' 'Prelude '84'. The sound that resembles a tiny little helicopter taking off elsewhere on the 'Quicksilver' music would also be used on 'Diamonds Aren't So Hard' from 'Still' - possibly showing that Tony assumed people couldn't be arsed to buy the original.

I don't like the Jim Diamond track, but Toyah's is excellent and she'd be so much better singing with Tony than doing bread and butter jobs like going on 'I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!' and 'The Wright Stuff' (UK current affairs phone-in show). Maybe he should have considered her for Genesis after Phil went. As for the 'Lorca & The Outlaws' music, nitpickers will also spot a bit recycled for 'Queen Of Darkness' on 'Still'!

Okay, but Tony can do so much better.
