See, I'd have FP as my least favourite of the post-anthology studio albums. I look through the track listing and I think "well, I know this is a solid album, but what do I really love
the title track
Are the ones that I think are first-class. Then there's some solid stuff: World Tonight, Songs, Young Boy, Little Willow, Great Day – good, solid Mac album tracks.
Somedays – I don't know why it's considered a classic. It's got a really hacky lyric – 'won the race' 'scored the goal'. It's almost as if he knocked it together sitting in the car waiting...
Beautiful Night doesn't deserve the lofty praise it often gets, either. If You Wanna is a b-side (as are Really Love you and the Steve Miller one). And christ knows he put out enough CD1s and CD2s of the singles in those days to fill up all the b-side slots!
I quite like Heaven on a Sunday
Would have been a really good 11-track album.
