Musically, several of the tracks, such as Titanic , How I Love You , St John's Wood and Barefoot When I Saw Her stand out, but others such as Captivating Voice , Masterpiece and Isabella are pretentious. Two tracks Linda Linda and Piece Of Me are just plain bad. Part of the problem lays in the fact that the band are concerned with making the obligatory profound musical statement (the first side had all the tracks segued into one another in the manner of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's, each linked by a short orchestral piece). As a result the album comes over as all solemn and self consciously arty, and is totally overblown.
