Diverse and quite creative, but also simply boring.

It is still a good record but seems lacking when compared to the genius of the first two.

Hello I Love You is a classic. Not to Touch the Earth, The Unknown Solider, Spanish Caravan and The Unknown Solider are lesser classics. Love Street is the hidden gem. The rest is just okay but overall another solid outing.

Great album. Has a good autumn/summery vibe to it. My personal favorite songs are Not To Touch The Earth and Love Street

This album is like a really good pancake. Crispy on both ends, soggy and weak in the middle.

Unfortunately, pancake logic does not apply to music albums.
Still a super consistent and enjoyable record though. Super high highs. Really passionate.
Best song: Not To Touch The Earth.

Apart from "We Could Be So Good Together" and "Yes, The River Knows", the rest are really good. I don't understand why it's so overlooked.

Pretty good album but not as good as the last two. Still great tracks like Hello, I Love You, Love Street, Not To Touch The Earth, Five to One and The Unknown Soldier
