Goldie's Last Day better than PFR's last albums

"Goldie's Last Day features PFR before they began to take themselves too seriously. The tracks all sound like typical PFR songs -tight vocal harmonies, clever chord arrangements, and nice work from long-time producer Jimmy Lee Sloas; the big difference between this album and later albums from PFR is the lightness of the lyrical matter. The title track is about a dog for goodness sakes!
The band often proved their ability to pen a generic radio hit (ie: The Love I Know from the album "Great Lengths" or Line of Love from "Them") and this album has what is probably the best of the band's three big hits in the song "That Kind of Love." Still the band is at their best when they lighten up and the best tracks on this album are Shine, Spinnin' Round, Wait For the Sun, and the title track.
Contrary to other reviews, I recommend this album over the other -still solid- PFR releases."
