A precious pocket of musical sincerity and no little skill from the midst of the dross of the eighties and will disappoint no-one: buy it.
If you're thinking of trying out Deacon Blue this is their best album by a long way (with the added bonus of the 2nd disc)and simply blew me away at the time. Such a good mix of songs from the sad to the uplifting to suit any mood. If you think an 80s band is uncool forget about your image for a minute and buy this for simply great music. Can't recommend it enough although if you like the trash that hits the charts these days perhaps it's not for you.
There are some things you may want to consider before you buy this (double disc) edition.
1) This remaster has more dynamic compression than the original issue. While it may seems to have more detail, some of the definition has been lost - it will likely be more tiring to listen to. I currently prefer the sound of the original.
2) There is some bad language on disc two, but no warning sticker.
3) The live stuff is not of brilliant sound quality, and not massively different in terms of arrangement.
4) The studio demos, etc. are quite interesting but I would strongly advise that if you can do so legally that you try before you buy. You may be better off getting the single disc version. (Still a little fruity on the notes to ...Spencer Davis... though)
