Deacon Blue came onto the scene probably at the right time in the late 1980s when the charts were being ruled by the bubblegum pop scene and Stock Aitken and Waterman.
The album saw a mixture of rock, pop and soul and every song on the album is well crafted. The album was the follow up to the successful Raintown. The album went to number one in the UK charts and 5 singles were released and all went top 30. It features the classic Real Gone Kid and this is followed up by Wages Day, Fergus sings the blues, Queen of the new year and Love and regret.
The album displays the classic boy v girl with Ricky Ross and Lorraine Mcintosh providing excellent lyrics and vocals. They could play loud and also slow it down and the album ends with 2 great songs Your Constant Heart and the haunting Orphan a perfect way to end the album.
A real classic album from the 1980s with a bit for everyone, no real weak songs on this album and a well crafted album.
