An atmospheric, timeless masterpiece, from track 1 to 5.This mini-album has aged very well since its release in 1983. It's the first great effort by the band to deliver the sound which defines them as a European band pur sang. Especially on vinyl this album reveals its secrets.Track 1: Sketches Of Spain. Still played live and it's a pleasure to see Rob hitting the toms still with great pleasure. Track 2: Bild Am Sonntag (As Usual). One of Michiels finest compositions. Listen to the acapella version on Quest, hearing is believing. The song is wonderful and Beatlesque (on par with the acapella version of Because on Anthology 3)Track 3: Acres Of Tintoretto. It fits very well in the record as a whole, but as a standalone composition, It's less impressive.Track 4: Dapper Street. Aaaaahhh, the melancholy...... This song is SO great. Based on a Dutch poem, it describes a feeling many Dutch listeners will recognize. I'm not sure if this feeling will be recognized internationally.Track 5: Let alone the somewhat forced guitar intro, this song is a very fine composition by Robert Jan. It should have been the closer of the album, and I believe Henk would have wanted it this way.Track 6: Your Next Tyres. Would've worked fine as a B-side, or even better: should have been included on the follow-up album Adieu, Sweet Bahnhof. Listen to the first 2 tracks of that album, musically there's quite some similarities. It perhaps should have been omitted from this album, or should have been re-recorded like they did with Acres of Tintoretto.
Track order on outer sleeve differs from actual order: A3, A1, B3, B1, A2 [as "As Usual"], B2 [Memories Are New [without III].
