There are no tracks I don't like.
Only Giddy Giddy, which is not a bad track, I don't quite get why it's there.
Missionary Poisition I am not so fond of - deliberate putting 'that' chord sequence to those lyrics I guess, but it makes a nice impact after Probably Nothing.
I think the second half of the album starting with Hippo is simply brilliant.

I prefer the second half too. At this point I'd give the album 7/10,

Given I'm deprived by managing only one uninterrupted listen -

Basically, every track on the album had me basking in awe.

Edith Piaf and then Missionary Position overwhelmed me with the notion of perfect tens for potential hits the minute I heard performed live in Glasgow.

Scandinavian Design felt a flawless interpretation of the title.

Glad Unaware impressed you too into rating it a ten. Trying to work out why, I imagined that if The Beatles had collectively survived, evolved, and stayed fresh, that would be the sort of song they'd aspire to do.

Life with the MacBeths was a knockout. So many capable pop stars have sang with operatic singers, only to produce something so ill-matched to be cringeworthy. However, the unique quality of Russell's voice blends with Rebecca Sjowall magically. Thus, I'd have to give it a ten.

As an album, it benefits from the diversity of songs, not to mention the diversity of music within songs. Therefore, I could only give it my highest rating.
