Comments:

More power pop. Great lyrics supported by excellent melodies and harmonies, nice guitar work, prominent 'cello parts, and good production values as well. A stinging indictment of the class system in England? You make the call. Great in concert as well. The only downer was the video for "Lenny Valentino", which was unwatchable. (relph@presto.ig.com)
