The Blue Nile, "High," should they have just stayed away?

I've been disappointed by everything after Hats. Et tu?

I have made a conscious decision to not hear this record. It being as bad as I fear it to be would distress me too much.

Hear it...I really like it.. It's waaaaaaaaay better than "Peace At Last"..

It actually sounds like they tried to make a follow up to "Hats"

FOPP has "Rooftops" for a fiver. Worth it? (Don't all rush)

Course it is.

i've listened only once so far. i vote "better than peace at last" too. at least one track seemed hats-b-side-worthy, even.

much better than I was expecting. it's still a bit coffeehouse yuppie muzak, but it's good.

Coffeehouse yuppie muzak, yes. Hats was more than that, though.

twelve years pass...

"broken loves" is one of their best songs imho

as a whole this album is pretty underrated I think
