    I'm listening to both the official album and then the easy to access outtakes as I work.
    I'm 100% happy with what was chosen to be on the final album vs. what was left off. That said, I love "Somethings Missing" and "I Do It for Your Love" in particular. As far as Karen singing too high, "It's Really You" is the worst offender of all of it.

    Count me in as a fan of All Because Of You also. Love the acoustic guitar and Karen's bluesy delivery ("I keep singin' my love song"). So unique from the disco-oriented material.

    I have to agree with you. It just feels like everyone is being way too picky here.

    The emphatic, clipped delivery on "All Because" reminds me a bit of the style she used on "A Song for You" (specifically, the section beginning, "You taught me / precious secrets..."). Then there's the lyric in "All Because" that makes a sideways reference to "A Song for You". For those reasons, I hear those two songs as companion pieces, in a way.

    It is amusing that one of the reasons I am not particularly fond of Richard's lead vocals,
    is that (imho) he usually sings in too high a key for my tastes (in male vocalists) !

    ^^ Agreed- and I really like Richard's solo work on Time too.

    sorry, have to disagree there rick :)
    a post I made about a week ago was removed, which was respectful, but just my opinion!

    I think this thread has outlived its usefulness. Ten years is a long time and the subject has been thrashed to the point of people sniping at each other.

    If there's something that you want to say about the solo album that hasn't been said before, feel free to start a new thread.
