A 100% classic album, featuring as it does so many superb songs, especially 'In Your Eyes'. His best solo album by a million miles. Hardly a review, I know, but I simply cannot recommend this album highly enough!

On « hear that voice avait » there is something weird at 0’50. The sound descreases. It lasts 1 second. I have both remastered cds (2002 & 2012).
