I think that album would be as good as any if it had been 10 mothers!!! It just suffered from bloat and very poor editing...I mean, who likes Road of Dreams (despite the sweet sentiment).
But Highway to the Sun (one of the best Cope songs EVER!), Queen Mother, Greedhead Detector, Girl Call, I'm Your Daddy, Stone Circles, Wandered lonely as a cloud, Senile get, Wheelbarrow man, and Try, Try, Try would've made a great album, I think. Although, I have to say, despite liking the tune, I hate the slick, trebley sheen of Try, Try, Try....the Saint Julianesque, Warne Livesy production just didn't go with the rest of the album and deffo sounded very eighties. Wish it'd been done just like the rest of the album, but I am sure it was recorded after, and as a concession to Island who was terrified of putting out a record with no singles.
