This review is from: Press To Play (Audio CD)
When this first came out, in 1986, I was into buying cassettes. Always thought it was a pretty good album, and loved However Absurd in particular. Decided to upgrade to the CD reissue with the 2 bonus tracks when I saw it in a sale for a fiver. I hadn't realised that there were originally 13 tracks, as my old cassette only has 10. It seems the cassette short changed fans for some reason. The extra 3 tracks are Write Away, It's not true, and Tough on a Tightrope. These make the album even better value,particularly It's not true, and then you get the 2 bonus tracks too! I really can't see why this album is generally so ill thought of, it's far better than McCartney II for instance which only has one good track, this has at least 6 or 7, and virtually no filler. True it's not as good as Ram, Band on the Run, Tug of War, or any from Flowers in the Dirt onwards, but its pretty good for all that.

However Absurd -- love it. The melody of the bridge is exquisite and the finale and outro are first rate. The last 15 seconds is a trip in itself. Good taste man!
