I must I admit I was a little disappointed with this album. On their first two albums there are some fine songs outside the hit singles. This is not really the case here. "The Tide is Turning" is okay, and the two hits "Zabadak" and "The Legend of Xanadu" are great. Fortunately there are some interesting bonus tracks on the recent Repertoire re-release. I particularly find the two Coca Cola songs quite charming. Also the single "Last Night in Soho" and the B-side "Still Life" are good.
