3 stars Not a bad pop album from THE CHURCH and you could say this was the stepping stone to international fame with their next album "Starfish". This is fairly dreamy with jangly guitars. Not a lot of dynamics at work here with the reserved vocals and that laid back sound but it has it's moments.

They do add some guest horns and strings at times.This works well with the instrumental "Happy Hunting Ground" where we get some atmosphere as well. "Myrrh" the opening track is a top three for me.The sound builds until the vocals arrive then it settles back. "Columbus" is another top three and my favourite. It's uptempo but also uplifting. "Disenchanted" is the other top three. A dreamy track that hits the spot. I like "Youth Worshipper" quite a bit as well.

I really like how this band sounds but this particular album seems to be lacking something.
