Review by jamesbaldwin
3 stars This single features two piano ballads:

1) Living in another world, 45 rpm version i.e. short version. I consider the extended version, that of the LP, better, more intense, capable of reaching higher emotional peaks thanks to the greater development of the melodic, obsessive theme, which reaches paroxysm. However, this version is more concentrated and retains that dramatic mix of vocals, percussion, and keyboards that gives to the song a swirling, mesmeric trend: hence its great charm. Rating 8+.

2) For what it's worth is a ballad, with Paul Webb's bass in evidence, then the keyboards, the drums with the drumsticks that beat on the outline of the snare, It's a pop-jazz song, which could be comparable to some of the Simply Red, but which does not have the same grit, it is atmospheric, and a little too monotonous. Rated 7.5.

45 rpm rating: 8. Three and a half stars.
