AllMusic Review by

This is quite simply a brilliant album. Pat Fish (or the Jazz Butcher as he is known on this release) came up with melodic, melancholic, beuatiful rock/pop songs that are jammed full of emotion. Although Fish has stated he is unhappy with the overall production, John a Rivers created a sound with these songs utilizing the tight band put together for this album. There are a number of highlights, but the album is worth buying just for the wonderful "The Word I Was Looking For," which is lyrically very clever and has a tune that stays with you long after the album is over. This album is a brilliant example British guitar pop/rock souond from the late '80s.
