The brilliant backing band can hardly be blamed for another ill-advised effort on Vertigo. This sounds often pretty nice, but there is so hopelessly little substance in the music that it is ultimately only the surface that shines. Underneath, a big void stares mercilessly at us. The lyrics are as pretentious as they come and will cause many of us to blush involuntarily. Sugar is everywhere on the music in thick layers. Sad low point: the Elton John imitation of That was yesterday, or is it satire?

At least Mr.Dean is in form. Three wild cloud-riders on very eager mounts appear over the horizon. One with no face, one with a Viking hairdo and one with glasses! The colours are quite restrained for a design of Dean. The violence of the image stands in stark opposition to the music within. On the back a great photograph of a stone-green sea. On the insert we find the lyrics imposed upon two photos of clouds.
The modest lettering serves its purpose and has the right colour, too.
