The second studio album, and probably the most commercially successful. I liked it a lot, but not as much as their first album. I found some of the songs too overtly political and not as soulful and mellow as Cafe Bleu. Still very listenable, and much better than subsequent releases. Recording quality is good, with a typical 80s sound.
