Not much of an album, if you don't count the re-recordings (which I don't, at least when doing
these reviews). In that case, there are only 3 new songs, one alternate version of one of the
new songs, and some instrumentals with classical leanings.
No more lonely nights (Ballad) - lovely guitar work by Gilmour, nice singing by Paul and we have one of the better hits of the 80s.
No values - rocks along nicely. If the lyrics really are a dig at Denny is hard to say, but they seem heartfelt.
Not such a bad boy - another rock song, which doesn't really have anything to say. The melody itself is quite nice, though.
Eleanor's dream - is the better of the two classical instrumentals here, and it's a nice variation on the "Eleanor Rigby" theme. A bit long, though.
No more lonely nights (Playout version) - the best thing about this song is that it's not as long as those remixed versions that exist on singles. Otherwise, this re-recording of an otherwise perfectly good song is idiotic, to say the least.
Good night princess - big band classical music is a good description of this. Paul has always had leanings towards this kind of music, but rarely has he gone full speed ahead. It's not really to my tastes, being a bit too schmaltzy.
