For me this is the best A-ha album. Perfect pop album for the yuppie era of late 80's. Pure genious. Superb tracks. Perfect singing. It's pop music alright. It's not meant to be taken very seriously but it's tremendous fun and gives you chills. Stylistically there's nothing else like it and never will be. It's the perfect example of seizuring time and a style of living and a state of technology inside music - and it happened by pure chance like the best of things. None other A-ha album really touched me except the Foot Of The Mountain and this one, and ofcourse their signature track Take On Me. Many of the A-ha albums I don't understand at all what's the fuss. But this is an arrow through my soul. 5/5

This album is mostly looked at as the weakest A-Ha album and in retrospect it is. With the pressures of retaining that earlier fame you have songs like Touchy! And Stay on these Roads. Pressure to write hit songs for America. While those fell flat and remain flat everyone who followed them know what an excellent song Alone is Love is. However for me there are two songs on here that are the reason I keep this disk and go back to it occasionally. Out of Blue Comes Green and the ballad There's Never a Forever Thing. OOBCG is the highlight of the album for me. The instrumental jam sessions parts that nicely bridge the track to some of the most triumphant vocal deliveries in their catalog. And how about the last minute and a half?! It gets funky and beautiful at the same time. The latter song is one of their top 5 ballads they did as a band. While this album is a sore spot for the band don't let these two escape you. You should like them as much as any debut material they did.
