Overview

This time the rhythm section is better (Mike Baillie and Russell Webb had stepped in), and Bill Nelson's production also helps matters. But just what is he like, that Richard Jobson? Song titles in Latin, for goodness sake, and references to an Olympian ideal that got him into trouble with those who saw him as a Nazi sympathizer -- he claimed that was nonsense, he was just interested in history. And he wanted listeners to be interested too, which is why he rammed the grandiose "A Day in Europa" and "The Olympian" down their throats. However, there was considerable compensation in the inclusion of the singles "Animation," "Charade," and, in particular, "Working for the Yankee Dollar." [The 2001 reissue adds seven bonus tracks: "Masquerade," "Out of Town," "Another Emotion," "Aftermath Dub," "Grey Parade," an alternate take of "Working for the Yankee Dollar," and "Panguards Crusade"]
