I love this album, I really do. A couple of issues with the production on a couple tracks sounding a bit flat, but I really do love the songs. I remember hearing "Movin' On" for the first time and I instantly knew they had returned to Stock & Waterman (Matt Aitken had left by this stage). Hearing it gave me the same feeling the 1987 SAW tracks did, and it's one of my faves to this day.
The follow up "Last Thing On My Mind" is really quite a let down, and flopped in the UK. I actually prefer the Steps version, which was a big worldwide hit.
Then when the album was released I was quite happy. I know it's not as slick or fresh as the PWL hey day tracks, it's missing a certain spark really. But I still love the writing.
"Is She Good To You" should have been a single, and probably should have followed "Movin' On". It's the closest thing to their big hits, and it's the one track besides "Movin' On" that stands out with that spark.
"Only Time Will Tell" has a great intro, and reminds me a little of "Better The Devil You Know". "Give It All Up For Love" is another average moment, and I tend to skip it. Then "You'll Never Know What It Means" begins and all is forgiven. Great pop track with alot of energy, and up there with my other 2 favourites. Closing track "I Could Be Persuaded" is just brilliant, very slick production which makes up for a lot of what the album missed out on. A nice ballad and quite a surprise.
There is a 2007 re-issue of this album, AVOID IT. It's badly planned, poorly researched, and so called bonus tracks are the same as one of the album tracks. Whoever put it together should be VERY ashamed.
I would one day love a Cherry Pop re-issue. But until then if you buy it, hunt down the original.
