    An unexpected favorite. This album is way too underappreciated.

    If I could love this whole album I would. There are moments where I prefer this to Miami or Fire of Love, and those albums are fantastic.

    under-appreciated album. Over time, one can listen more than to Fire of Love... this one is deeper.
