Somewhere along the line, the Boomtown Rats just. lost it. The seams were showing already on The Fine Art Of Surfacing, but the big hit singles somehow wobbled the perspective and made the seams seem fuzzy enough to allow us to think that these were just temporary direction problems. In fact, it is a song that might as well have been. As a matter of fact, this album is just plain boring, I'm afraid.
