The best DCD album. Hands down. Perfect balance of great music and deeply important lyrics.

This album was the transition period....it has the flavor of their first album mixed with the later stuff. Don't get me wrong please, every single DCD album to me is beyond 5 stars....this one is just a little further. The last track is such an important message in our time.

Disregard the majority of my last comment: I believe the '86 release date is for the CD only (else, 4ADs web page is just bunk)!
