Prog Reviewer
2 stars Both tracks on this single are from the 1987 album Sirius, which hasn't stood the test of time quite as well as Macalla (1985). Much of Sirius feels a bit over-produced in the 80's pop style. 'Something to Believe In' is a nice mid-tempo ballad featuring piano and backing vocals of Bruce Horsby (who had a hit 'It's Just the Way It Is'). Moira Brennan's vocals suit excellently to this melodic song. Elton John might have written something in this vein, but I don't think I'd enjoy any of his 80's songs as much as this Clannad song.

'Second Nature' is more fast-moving, and if I remember right, one of the worst in Sirius. It has a wrong kind of 'edginess' that feels somehow phoney. Despite the A side song being fairly good as a pop song, there's hardly a reason to rate this single more than two stars in this site.
