Two excellent singles, a great voice and overall good songs. However, most of the album is a bland 80s soup of sound, especially the lesser tracks. An extra track on the version I heard called Revel in the Rain should have been what they went for sound wise on some of the tracks, jazzy. Good track too.

Black aka Colin Vearncombe released this album in 1987 after the world wide success of the song Wonderful Life. That song and the closing song Sweetest Smile are the "slow" songs on this album and the biggest hits but the rest of the album is good with songs full of irony and melancholy.
