3 stars Portrait of a band in decline.

After producing a string of four and five star albums (hell, I'd round them all up to five), the magic seemed to have gone out. I don't think they produced anything as good as what came before until 2000's Somewhere To Elsewhere. Even though I had the LP back when the album was new, I didn't bother to get a CD copy until 2003. It's not really a bad album, just uninspired. I think the problem is that they were going for more commercially accessible music and the next one after this one Audio-Visions continued the trend after which the classic band lineup would be no more.

So, what's good on here? Pretty much all the songs but alas nothing really great on here.
