"I Will Be With You" is one of those wishful dreams of going back to times past. However, it's the third single (in the U.S., anyway) that rivals "Heart And Soul" in sheer silkiness. "China In Your Hand," which did better in T'Pau's native UK, opens with pizzicato strings, and this leisurely paced song coated with their usual wall of synthesizer. The chorus goes "Don't push too far/Your dreams are china in your hand/Don't wish too hard/Because they may come true." Or, as another proverb goes, "Be careful what you wish for-you may get it." The sax solo at the end is a nice touch, and the fact that there is a brief reprise of this song as the last track hints at its status as the keynote track here.
"Friends Like These" takes a critical look at tunnel-visioned friends who fall down once their dream and vision prove fallible: "But oh how the mighty all fall down/Heavy in a sea of principles." The chorus goes: "Only one dream/only one way/only one vision and thought for the day." Carol wonders if they are aware that there's more than one way to the answer.Read more ›
I recently rebought it in CD form and it's as amazing now as it was then. How T'Pau was so successful in the UK and yet a one-hit wonder in the US, I have no idea. China in Your Hand is such a well-done song, lyrically, musically, and emotionally, and the rest aren't far behind.
Now if only they'll rerelease The Promise, and actually come up with a US version of Rage, I'll be happy.

This is one of the very best albums you will ever buy.
There is not one track that is not an excellent production.
Shame it's out of stock at the moment.
This is one of those albums that really puts you in the mood. Heart and Soul of course is my favorite track. Very lyrical and poetic it's the music that one will never forget. Read morePublished on August 21, 2001 by Peter Beamer
