Since The Day You've Gone is possibly one of a Caruso's best songs, and a great melancholy, heartfelt song of lost love.
It has an hypnotic effect thanks to a memorable riff played on the organ.
Caruso revisited the song for the "Ecce Homo" album, recorded 2007, where the sequencer, drum-machine and keyboards of this version were substituted by syncopated drums, bass, an acoustic guitar, and a Caruso trademark distorted guitar, which probably reflect the way Caruso originally conceived the song, before the Electro sound arrangement and lo-fi limitations of Waiting For The Light's production.
Yet some people prefer this version, and Waiting For The Light in general to later Caruso's more accomplished recordings, because of its originality, and the inspired feel of this 1983 album.
