Review by sylvian April 5, 2015 (4 of 7 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
Stellar album that has been surpassed only with its successor (Avalon) two years later. Our crooner is very competent especially with these two tracks: Eight Miles High ( cover version of The Byrds classic ) & No Strange Delight. The Album has been released in June 1980 and was accompannied by three singles: Over You b/w Manifesto (title track from predecessor), Oh, Yeah b/w South Downs (only available on complete studio recordings boxset) and Same Old Scene b/w Lover (all of the sigles has been released the same year).

Sonically this release is as close to the vinyl as possible (or master tape allows):

compared to

Over You might seem a bit shrill in soundstage performance, but this is the only issue with this album.
Someone at Universal Japan certainly look here and the sonical quality is vastly improved over such releases as for Queen and Yes.

Recommended!
