This album is absolutely amazing, no doubt about that. It contains some of the Ray's best songs songs so far, including few real gems (Take it slow, She don't feel so loved, Rhiane). No fillers there. I rate it as Wilson's best album, together with "Propaganda Man", but "Chasing rainbows" is more on the heavy and rockier side ("More Stiltskin than Ray Wilson", so to say). Wilson is one of the most underated singers, which is amazing considering his voice and ability to write melodic, catchy but "ambitious" songs. Probably that's the place where music industry enters as a key factor. Would it be, say, new Coldplay album, it would be probably considered as brilliant achievement. As it is not, you have to discover it yourself. Maybe that's the right approach to music. The first, one star review, seems to be total misunderstanding, but de gustibus ....

I heard un fulfillment 2 years ago, and I thought it couldn't get much better than this but this record certanly tops it. Really good selection of songs, one of those albums where every track could be a single! Favourite track is "She don't feel loved"
