The brief clip I heard on iTunes was not inspirational. But then, "Magic" was another mediocre lead single but I thought that the last album was a corker. My favorite since "Sparkle In the Rain." So we'll wait until we have it in hand to fully comment. The inclusion of Russel Mael and Gary Clark from Danny Wilson was certainly unexpected and intriguing.

Not bad. Is that Jim Kerr singing? doesn't sound like him. I pretty much stopped buying their albums after Street Fighting Years and Real Life and I never really listened to those albums very much.
