This was Geldof's first album after the turmoil of organising the Live Aid event and the hard work he put into the whole Aid movement. The album was very much anticipated but fell flat on it's face, it seemed the public at the time had had enough of Sir Bob's voice, the press gave it very little and it only charted in the 70's. I bought it back on tape then and personally couldn't play it enough, listening to it 25 years on it has stood the test of time getting better with age like a fine wine. There is no doubt that the album is far better than the both the press and chart position it received back then and now it should be listened to for what it really is, a fantastic set of tracks from a man needing to get back to his musical reality. He sings from the heart and his voice is powerful, beautiful and the whole album is absolutely brilliant!!!
