AllMusic Review by

Saving Grace is two-fer reissuing the Sad Café albums Politics of Existing (1985) and Whatever It Takes (1989). These albums (especially the latter) were recorded during a break in the hectic schedule of Mike + the Mechanics, a band Paul Young sang vocals with at the time. Along with Sad Café co-founder Ian Wilson, Young co-wrote the majority of these 20 soft rock tracks. They were to be the band's final two albums, as Young passed away in 2000 of a heart attack.
