Customer Review

on October 17, 2002
Once in a while you get an album that you don't like after the first listen but you stick with it and it grows on you. This is not one of those albums. In fact, I dislike it more an more everytime I hear it. At times I even doubt that it is Simple Minds. The only proof to me is that it really is them is that it sounds like Jim Kerr's voice. Obviously, they had not found there "sound" yet. I was expecting an album similar to their other early releases such as "Empires and Dance" and "Sons and Fascination" (which are two of my all time favorite albums) but this album is missing the cutting edge originality that I like so well. A previous reviewer used the word "cheesy" which is a perfect description. One song reminds me of a bad Go-Go's song. Let's all be thankful that they got better and evolved into the great band that they were meant to be.
