Was listening again to Nothing But A Fool recently. Yeah it baffled me a bit why a lot of people dislike it. Only thing I can think of is maybe it’s a little sickly sentimental at times and also maybe some don’t like the backing vocals? Can kind of see their point but i still think overall it’s a great song.

Maybe - but then that type of overwrought female soul backing vocal has been part of the NO arsenal since Shame Of The Nation, so you'd think they'd be used to it by now! Big Grin

I think Nothing but a Fool is ok. But that and Unlearn this Hatred and the 2 songs I’ve tired of the quickest.

I think NBAF suffers from being overlong and I’m not overly keen on the chugging guitar riff.

I like both songs a lot, but I do feel that Nothing But A Fool seems a little too long.

I never understand why Stray Dog gets so much grief; absolutely love the song. Nice for the band to try new things. I've said it before (possibly already in this thread), but I feel that Stray Dog is the natural successor to Murder. It has Steve's fingerprints all over it.

POTHL I find a little bland, but really Superheated is the only track on the LP that I really dislike (and I really do!).

Yes to be fair NBAF does go on a bit. Sometimes it bothers me, at other times I’m fine with it.

POTHL is maybe a little bland yeah but I’ve always liked Superheated, maybe the music more than the lyrics. Love that quite raw synth sound at one point in the track. Strangely reminds me of the sort of sound Bernard would create on an old synth at JD gig in something like Decades or Atmosphere.
