Appearing after the commercial failure of The Real Life, Good News from the Next World managed to stir up some attention from both album and alternative rock stations. However, the record quickly faded and it's easy to see why -- apart from the slick "She's a River," there is no strong single material. It's well-produced and performed, yet Simple Minds' songs just miss the mark.
