Only for completionists (0%). Fortunately, from the fifth track onwards things start looking up, and the album then remains strong, all the way to the end. "Shine a light" is a charming lovesong, and "Wide awake" an urgent uptempo song (Ayers finally catches fire!) while "Baby come home" is an instant classic: a beguiling duet with the gorgeous Bridget St. John, who last appeared on an Ayers album three decades ago, and who will be familiar to Floyd fans as well
