Prog Reviewer
3 stars All songs in this album are very good. This album is more "serious" than "Free as a Bird". It has a mixture of pop songs for the Radio to please the record label ("Cannonball", "Still in Love") and songs which have more "serious" and interesting lyrics, and I think that some of them reflect Rick Davies`personal thoughts and feelings at that time. These serious songs are: --No Inbetween: I think that the lyrics are about some musicians that in the beginning enjoyed a lot being in the music business,but as years passed, being in the music bussiness became contractual obligations and some of the musicians are tired because playing music it`s more a job than something to enjoy. Lyrics similar as other bands`songs ("Many too Many", "Heathaze" and "Down and Out" by Genesis, "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd, "Blood from a Clone" by George Harrison, etc.). -"Better Days": I think that it is about promises made in campaigns by politicians. -"Brother where you bound": the "cold war" still existing in the mid-eighties.David Gilmour appears in this song as he did in many albums as session musician between 1984 and 1986. -"Even open door":a person looking for new goals in life. The recording of this album is very good. The keyboard sounds are very clear, maybe because they used the Fairlight and the Synclavier. This is a very good album and proved that Supertramp could exist without Roger Hodgson.
