"At the time that this recording was released, it received HORRENDOUS reviews from the critics and is listed as the "worst" release that the band had done to that point and maybe ever. I personally don't see it. I have been a NRPS fan from near the beginning and I love this album! I have been looking for this CD ever since I made the transition from vinyl to CD's.I had pretty much given up ever seeing this in CD. It has fun and joy that characterized the band. The songs are wonderful. I particularly love the musicianship in "Take A Letter Maria" It's my favorite track even though I would have liked to have it mixed so that the second verse was fully audible. Other personal favorites are Strangers on a Train and Farewell, Angelina. Give it a listen; you may be pleasantly surprised!"
