it's a wonder not too many TFF fans bought this album. i can understand why. i did bought it the day it was release but didn't realize the beauty behind the compilations 4 years after. the three previous albums were all high velocity synth pop versions and in this album it took a screeching halt, roland went back to basics. which is, i think, was actually for the better. synthezisers can only entertain for so much. as we age, we long for simpler yet fuller arrangements of songs which "Raoul" has generously provided. "Sketches Of Pain" was the best example of this. using a spanish guitar with little acompaniment of instruments, the song still exudes the power as the message of it implies. "Humdrum And Humble" with it's lustful electric guitar riffs will surely lift up your mood. So does "Sorry"-it will fill your loud and edgy TFF sound requirements. the album may not be an instant hit the first time you play it-it sorts of grow on you little by little. a little warning though, it's quite habit-forming.

Great album. Proves beyond a doubt Roland Orzabal's musical genius. Falling Down is reminiscent of vintage Tears For Fears. The title track proves his vocal range has not diminished. If you like Tears For Fears, this album is for you.
