It's a kickass album. While Joyous is just a total scorcher, the record is very very strong throughout. From the tunes to orchestration to production, it's all so solid.

Joyous is one helluva track, you know they threw the kitchen sink at it, put in absolutely everything they could to blow your mind to the fullest extent possible, and it does, in spades.

If anyone has the cover please contact me. Just bought the record at goodwill but the cover is missing. Thanks!

My favourite pleasure track has always been Joyous. I love the way it kicks off with a boisterous sax solo, then drops into a funky little break before the trademark horns come in, followed by those smooth vocal harmonies. The first half of the track is a real nice little song. Then we hit the break again before the second half of the track starts - the business end. The guitar solo starts out innocently enough but quickly gathers steam and builds into an absolute monster. The disco-esque strings to end the track are the icing on the cake. It fades out so quick you just gotta play it again and again.
