I revisited this album this week by playing it on repeat in my car.
Even though I've loved all her work, this is her weakest album IMO. Because of the length of the tracklist, each brilliant track has an equally not-brilliant track that comes along with it.
'You Are My Rock', 'Fragile', 'Miscommunication', 'Sanctuary' and 'Nobody Listened' all have beautiful lyrics but are so forgettable, they fail to make any impression on me and I struggle to even remember which track is which.
On the other hand, the singles were brilliant. HOWEVER! The biggest travesty in her discography (IMO of course) was not releasing 'Last Night On Earth', which is one of the best songs she has ever recorded, it is genuinely epic. If she had gone this way:
#1. Out of the Blue
#2. Last Night on Earth
#3. Almost Here
#4. Mistaken Identity
#5. A Little Too Late
I think the era could have been even bigger than it already was. 'Electric Storm' is also another great track that was quite single worthy.
Overall, it doesn't hit the dizzying plentiful highs of 'Innocent Eyes', nor does it have the overall consistency of 'Delta', thus why I think this is her weakest album. 3.5 stars!
We run things, things don't run we.
