Softening the thorny style of their debut, Swoon, for this 1985 follow-up, Prefab Sprout committed one of the decade's most profound pop moments with "When Love Breaks Down." A sad testament to "the wrecks who leave their hearts," it's anything but wistful. That sort of multileveled smarts didn't help the group with U.S. radio programmers, despite Two Wheels Good's nearly devotional approach to lushness of melody and production. Even better was to come in the form of 1990's Jordan: The Comeback. --Rickey Wright

"This album for me represents the perfect mix of expression with craft. Both the soul and the mind are nourished here, whether by deeply affecting vignettes of love & loss, or by seamlessly (though originally) constructed gems of songwriting.
Yes, it is pop music. That fact is unabashed and celebrated here, not accidental or clandestine. There will be naysayers aplenty who long only for Black Sabbath or Elvis Costello - the much-over-quoted but seldom well-explained "edge" in popular music. About them, I can only say: Beware all men who mention body parts in common conversation, or in Amazon reviews."
"Hear you got a new girlfriend, how's the wife takin' it?"
