Emitt we miss you!
I have to admit I was quite disappointed.However realizing that his record company was trying to squeeze everything out of him at once,its no wonder that this album wasnt as good as it should have been.Badfinger went through the same ordeal which basically destroyed them.Luckily Emitt didnt try to take his life like two of the members of that group did.Never the less,some thirty one years after buying this album there are some songs that I really like and some that are not so good.My two favorite songs are,the georgous ''Only lovers decide'' and the title track''Farewell to paradise''.The other good ones are''Warm self sacrifice'',See no evil'',''Drawn to you'',''Blue horizon''and ''Trust once more''.Im not too crazy about ''Shoot the moon'',''Nights are lonely'',''Bad man'',and ''In desperate need'', so I only give this album three stars.Still I think its worth having just for the good songs.

He takes his homespun approch here, but adds jazzy horns. Read more
