"Those days are gone" is the best song !
Review written by Hirishi takahara, August 28th, 2004

I'm a one of the fan, for Bob welch. oh, sorry, I can't say exactly, cause I'm a japanese in far east country. But I love the songs of Bob Welch, He's a my favourite musician. So my best songs is written by him, that's "Those days are gone", I feel so especially, that's shaking me and over my young days. sometime I become to cry and feel in blue.

Strange, but mostly singable songs
Review written by John Fitzgerald, August 28th, 2004

Welch backs off a little from the guitars here to do some exploring which is more keyboards and slashing string arrangements from the late Jack Nitzsche notably on the opening title track and the album's most experimental track called "B666". "Justine" is the closest to a straight rocker on side one which is sort of like new wave meets R & B. Side two is more commercial which is led off by the single "Don't rush the good things" which I always thought was fun and it's a shame it wasn't more of a success. The urgent "The girl can't stop" is followed by "Jealous" which is probably the most guitar driven song on the record but like "Reason", it rocks without the use or need for guitars fairly well. "Fate decides" is a haunting ballad and the album closes with a charming one in "Those days are gone". Bizarre sounding but the tunes win through.

Welch's new album is more of a departure from any of the former Fleetwood Mac's previous efforts. The overall sound is more in tune with contemporary styles, relying on bass, drums and guitar synthesizer on a few tracks which produces an unusual, multi-textured sound. Tracks such as "B666" with its orchestral flavor are a surprise, although Welch's identifiable vocals soon take on a sameness. There are far fewer hooks and distinctive melodies than in previous Welch albums. Best cuts: "Man Overboard," "B666," "Don't Rush The Good Things," "Jealous." (Billboard Magazine)

This album was combined with The Other One by Edsel Records & released on CD as The Other One/Man Overboard in February 1998.
