5 stars A greatly underrated album.At least in his top ten. Maybe many fans would be diapointed when the album went out just because of its "poppy" sound,but in fact his style ain't change that much.His romantic was still there.If he had moved out all modern sounds,this one could be another excellent early classical PP&P. Some of his later PP&Ps also used annoying synthesizer quite often and none of these grew on me except this one. All the tracks here are sweet and innocent,including the magical instrumental ones. As for me I like Golden Bodies,The Women Were Watching,Traces,Exocet,Love in a Hot Air Balloon,Going For Broke,Falling for Love,Sally,I Want Your Heart,Guru & Alex best. So if you want to know what his later albums such as A Catch At The Tables & Slow Waves, Soft Stars was mainly about.I suggest you take this one first because it's more listenable.It gives you a clear reflection of his work in the late eighties. (you can check out his Archive Collection II to find the similarity between instrumental demos of this album and his later works ) ,If you are a pop music listener and want to have a glance at prog music,then this one is a very good choice for you too.
