4 stars All I can say is: This was where the band was at that moment in time. It has some weaker moments (a few). But overall, if you play it more than three times, it sort of grows on you. Tracks like "My Little Lovely" is a true MB song (old style) and so is "The Swallow". Give it a chance, and you`ll see, you`ll like it! "English Sunset"has that 90 electronic beat (wich i do not care for), but even this falls into place.

One Tip: Try not to compare the albums, this is where it all goes wrong. Time does not stand still (for no one), and the music changes due to influences of situations in the world, and so it should. Would it not be boring to play 20 or so albums from a band, and all sounding like the first/best one they made! Now that would be a rip off!
