A true masterpiece was released 28 years ago today.

Not a masterpiece. Also sounds like the boys had their testes removed.

Plenty of good stuff on the album. It just suffered from the production not being a little heavier.

Maybe not a masterpiece, but I'd say severely underrated. Worst offenses on there are Hand Over Fist and Anagram, which are just boring and that's all that's really wrong with the album. The production style fits the songwriting and overall aesthetic they were going for and I find it quite pleasing. Plus is has Available Light, one of the most unjustly overlooked songs in their whole catalogue.

And Mick and Segue are only bums if they don't respond to this thread, lol.

God. I remember buying it the day it came out. Ran to my dorm room. Put it in the cd and rocked out approvingly to Show Don’t Tell...and then sat there speechless as the crap started to ooze out of the CD player. Mostly awful songs. Awful production. Awful album. It still stings a little how much this album disappoints me.

Was just thinking that about the Pass- how can you not like an album with that on it?  :huh:

Terry Brown took them with him when he left.

Some ambassadors they turned out to be.

We ought to fire them.  ;)

But, let's not be too hasty in our condemnation of them.  Perhaps the two rascals were out celebrating Presto's anniversary and got too carried away to bother with TRF and album anni threads.

I like the attempt but the overall execution fails. Seem like an amateur on low rent equipment tried this.
