Very Well-Balanced Album

This was an underrated album back in 1980, but it is very well-balanced and adventurous. Cummings takes several chances in this effort, utilizing synthesizers and other effects; not exactly his MO. The end result is a very good listen. "Heavenly Blue" is perhaps the best song on the album, although it did not catch on as a single. "Fine State of Affairs" was the breakaway hit (and his first number one in Canada as a solo artist) on the album. Although catchy, it does grate after a while and isn't the best work. "It's Hard" is a good rocking song, as is "Had to Be You." If you like Burton Cummings, this is a must download.
