Arith
By the time that this album came around the band was clearly running out of ideas. There are some truly horrendous cuts here and one really has to wonder what the band were trying to do. Gone are the links to their traditional Irish roots and more syrupy pop tunes are coming to the fore. However, it's not all dross - 'Guests of the Nation' shows what the band was still capable of. I must also admit that I also really like 'Amazing Offer', 'Rescue Me' and 'The Life You Save' but neither show the band at their best. In short, if you're new to Horslips this is NOT the place to start; try 'The Taìn', 'Book of Invasions' and 'Aliens' to hear their real quality.
