This is NOT an easy record to get into, and it probably would have fared FAR better had it not been released on the heels of his classic smash record "Hardline...". In fact, if this journey of a record had been released, say, today, what, with all of the ambient and psychedlic sub-genres floating around, we'd probably be hailing this one as a classic.
Well, parts of it, anyway. As big a fan of D'arby as I may be, I have to admit some of the stuff is just D'arby for D'arby's sake and not yours, the audience's, and the record suffers for it. However, if you can get it used, get it for "Roly Poly" alone. The song is MAD funky and the guy is beating on a cardboard box, for God's sake. I'm not joking. There's also the world-music influences (again, ahead of its time) of "It Feels So Good To Love Someone...", which is, simply put, a beautiful song.

"Introducing the hardline according to Terence Trent D'arby" is one of my all time favourite albums ever! D'arby followed up that masterpiece two years later with the largely experimental "Neither fish nor flesh" which sank like a stone and marked the beginning of the end of his chart career.

I'd only ever heard the single "To know someone deeply is to know someone softly" as it got a bit of airplay back then, but never heard enything else from the album until a month ago. Most reviews I'd read made me prepare to hear an awful mess when eventually I did.

What a fantastic album this is, far ahead of its time. People like Erykah Badu, D'Angelo and co would be doing this some ten years down the line. There are echoes of Hendrix, Prince, Stevie Wonder, and even the Beatles.

Opening are the pair of Trippy ballads, the almost a capella "I have faith in these desolate times" (with tribal-sounding percussion in the final minute), and the eerie-sounding "It feels so good to love someone like you" (with bird sounds, sitar and softly swirling sounds - hypnotic!).

"To know someone deeply is to know someone softly" is stunning! Jazzy, breezy, and soulful, with faint whiffs of Stevie's "Summer soft", gently cascading piano sounds, lilting percussion, a delicate bassline, and sweet guitar sounds.

"I'll be alright" is a retro sounding horn/organ peppered upbeat swinging number with a minute-long Gospel-like intro and feel. "Billy don't fall" is a bouncy Motown-channelling song. "This side of love" is a spare psychedelic sounding rocker with hollow-sounding beats and echoing guitars.

"Attracted to you" is pure James Brown-style funk, much like D'arby's hit "Dance little sister". Incredibly groovy!

Neither Fish Nor Flesh's downfall is it's lack of real commercial singles and a certain jealous Sony labelmate's sabotage if you believe Terence himself. That's not to say the music here is any worse overall than Hardline. The unofficially Stevie Wonder Summer Soft sampling "To Know Someone Deeply", Motown-esque "Billy Don't Fall" and the gospel attack of "I Don't Want To Bring Your God's Down" are some favourites of mine. Don't believe the hype, there was no dramatic artistic post-Hardline disaster.

This album, in my estimation, was one of the best albums to come out during the late 1980's -- and my favorite TTD album. I don't know why the record company didn't push this album -- because it is truly a work of art from start to finish.
It's really sad that American audiences are so enamored with glitz and glam, than with art that has true substance. Definitely a long overlooked gem for any true lover of music.

While HARDLINE hinted that Mr D'Arby was more than just a soul shouter/crooner, this album proved quite a shock to most people - probably most of all to Columbia Records. He attempts to expand his scope past simple pop/rock/soul, and while he does so, he leaves a lot of people behind. This is obviously a very personal album, but I found it a bit *too* personal - sometimes one isn't sure what he's saying (or doing), or why. He obviously had the money and time to experiment to his heart content - and that may have been a bit *too* much time and money. Mr D'Arby gets to play everything from a piano at the bottome of a swimming pool to a Taiwanese Limited Edition kazoo, and while the songs are mostly engaging, none really rise to brilliance. This is equally true of the lyrics, which are always interesting, but sometimes read better than they sing. "This Side of Love" was Columbia's desperate attempt at a hit single - it's cool, but my gut tells me "I'll Be Alright" would've been more successful. There are plenty of neat songs here - I particularly like "I Don't Want to Bring Your Gods Down" and "Billy Don't Fall". Newcomers to TTD should probably start at the first album - this is a good album, but one you need to spend a lot of energy listening to - it doesn't quite work for background music.
