the album was perceived as proving that the band's sound, guitars-as-bagpipes, courtesy of the E-Bow, was a one-time novelty, while Stuart Adamson's lyrics, full of British socialist working-class fervor, seemed jingoistic and pretentious. Nevertheless, much of the music, as on the first album, made for stirring rock & roll.

The album featured very traditional Scottish musical settings, reminiscent of the band's debut album The Crossing (1983). Kate Bush worked on the title song in a duet with lead singer and lyricist Stuart Adamson. The album's first single, "Look Away", was an Irish number one, and was also the group's biggest hit single in the UK, reaching The album reached number 2 in the UK Albums Chart.

Here I stand with my own kin At the end of everything Finaly the dream is gone I've had enough of hanging on. I came here with all my friends Leaving behind the weight of years Leaving alone in a flood of tears Out on a prospect that never ends. All the landscape was the mill Grim as the reaper with a heart like hell With a river of bodies flowing with the bell Here was the future for hands of skill. We built all this with our own hands But who could know we built on sand? Now it's barren all to soon There is no miracle in ruin
