Surprised to see there hasn't already been a thread on this album. It's got quite a poor reputation, but I found it a lot better than the relentlessly dour Dark Horse . It's more piano-based than many of his other albums, and dare I say quite soulful? Also, the opening track, 'You', is an absolutely joy.

I think he struggled on 'You' because it was recorded for Ronnie Spector to sing, and it was far too high for him. It sticks out as a Wall of Sound oddity on the album, and it's strange that he didn't re-record the backing track.

Love this album. Very lush instrumentation here. Awesome usage of EPs and great guitar tines from George. Excellent chord changes throughout as well. I can imagine You really packing a punch with a female lead singer. George’s vocals are fine on it. Midnight Blue probably my favorite, but honestly every track is very good. Remind me a bit of Walls And Bridges at times. Great piano work from David Foster, close to Nicky Hopkins’ level.
