For years I'd heard this album was a commercial dud and derided by critics and fans alike. As a result I'd given it a wide berth. Recently though I thought I'd take the plunge so at least I could have a valid opinion of my own. I'm glad I did....this is an unexpected gem! If you like the Slow Train Coming, Street Legal era (which I do), this fits in seamlessly and is a terrific album. I wish I'd given it a chance sooner - but better late than never!
