  1. The five Brits waste their major talents on midtempo songs like "Everyday" and "Four Letter Word."

    There's artistic maturation, and there's just plain old selling out. This, friends, is a prime example of the latter.

    Effortlessly cathy stuff. May not be the best from Lep, but still better than most of the junk the industry is spewing out these days.

    This is definitely DL's worst release since 1980's "On through the Night" and it might not even be as good as that one, but the truth is that even at their worst, they find a way to make some truly wonderful music, as in the beautiful "Long Long Way to Go" and the irresistably catchy "Everyday." However, this album is still chock full of filler and includes two rather pathetic stabs at modern pop music in "Girl like You" and "Unbelievable," making it a major step back from the return to form of "Euphoria."

    A late-career classic which only gets better over time.
