I've heard this many times but never really listened to it. I love it. Any Paul Young recommendations anyone?
That's a good cover and another one I like is "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down".
Just put it on, nice beat, overall a decent song. Really like his vocals.

Yes, don't listen to him.

There is only one answer really. To be fair "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" as mentioned earlier is pretty good, I just listened again. He has a couple of other ok songs but the best thing he ever did was lend the Q-Tips brass section to SLF.

Oh, and this....

People are always talking these guys up but I'm finding they are a little too smooth for me. Too much relaxing by the poolside, not enough danger in a dark alley.

Yeah, but "Destiny" is an awesome song. Great Sia vox.

Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

I pretty much agree with Heston. Paul Young does have a decent voice and as mentioned there are a couple of good songs. But it's all covers and in most cases as would be expected the originals are better.

There was a song or two that I thought were pretty good, but as an album I found it fading into the background.

The greatest early 80s album ever released in the 21st Century. Cheers to Matey for turning me onto this classic.

Andrew got me on board too. Disparate Youth is one of my favourite songs since the millennium.
