This is a more focused record than Spider's self-titled debut, so it's ultimately more enjoyable. Their attitude doesn't sound quite so forced, and the arrangements are very pleasing, especially compared to the more chaotic first album. Between the Lines also includes two tracks that were hits for other artists several years later: "Change" (a moderate hit for John Waite) and "Better Be Good to Me" (revamped by Tina Turner on her Private Dancer album).
