I read somewhere online that this was to be considered as Carmen's version of "Pet Sounds." While I wouldn't go that far, I would say that it's is up there with his self-titled debut for his best overall solo effort. While the songwriting can be somewhat hit-or-miss, I must say regardless that Carmen clearly poured his heart and soul into this recording. He makes up for any weak points by including two of his best-ever compositions: "She Did It," as well as the stunningly poetic title track. The production throughout is stellar, however the heavy string arrangements may come off as self-indulgent, particularly on the closing track "Runaway." Overall though, it is a highly listenable record that encourages repeat spins.

This version is gatefold with the lyrics printed on the inside on top of a picture of rough seas.

On the front cover it looks like Mr. Carmen just woke up in his favorite spaghetti strap nighty, with the crusty make up from the previous night's revelry still on his face, with a confused "dude where's my car" expression wrinkling his skull. :>
