Underrated on this site. Great album, with outstanding guitar work. "When It's Over" is a masterpiece.

Great album. Glad I found it. Made it to my 80's chart on first listen. Guitar work is amazing here, probably the major highlight. No Fair & Youth Of America are my top picks (but overall, 6 great songs)
