Black or White?,

This review is from: Timeless Flight (Audio CD)
Timeless Flight was a commercial failure but is still an excellent album. Harley probably never wrote better lyrics before or since. If Best Years of our lives was Harley's pension earner this album was the one that stood him up as a 'real artist' and first class lyricist. The politics are dodgy as many have pointed out but this has to be seen against the background of the rise of Thatcherisim and Harley's own left-wing Liberal views at the time. Red is a mean mean colour could equally be a critique of Blairisim never mind of the rising Militant left at the time. Highlight has to be 'nothing is sacred' this paved the way for Harley's acoustic shows in more recent years and is a high point of the album. Buy it, enjoy it, cos you'll love it for years to come.
