I love Spooky Boogie. The rest is plain awful.

Though a very irrelevant album, it has some good song though. Friends takes my vote, Words of the Wise is also a good piece.

Spooky Boogie is the only thing worth listening too off of this one.

Wow, no votes for little brown bag? Yeah, this is a crappy album compared to their others but still better than some pop albums by prog artists. Anyway, I think I'll vote for spooky boogie since I think that's a good one to play around Halloween time. Next up would be Word to the wise and little brown bag. :) I'm actually not that familiar with this one. I should play it again. Then follow it up with love beach. :P

This would be way easier if it said "Least Favorite Track."

Me too....it's actually a well-structured, melodic tune...commercial? yes, but I can sing (passionately) along to this in the shower.......

"It's only goodbye, a smile and a cry, and suddenly over, when
I think of you now, in kindness allow. My memory lingers, then
It's only goodbye, my strength telling lies, Just facing what had to be."

OK, I'll dry myself off now.

^ Maybe the only tune that is seriously listenable from memory. The title song had a fun element to it, and the rest is direly painful. I refuse to own this platter. Even the cover is lame.
