Not a bad write-up all in all.
But, this thing makes me wonder...

Quote
‘Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me’ was released as a double album. It was a kaleidoscopic work of genius. Opening with the rage and frenzy of ‘The Kiss’ and then folding away into the pure popdom of ‘Just. ‘Just Like Heaven’ remains one of Smith’s finest compositions and deserved far better than merely scraping the top 30 singles chart. Recorded jointly in Provence and Nevada, ...

Nevada? Really? First time I hear about this. While it's known that the band recorded in France, from what I gathered the mixing (plus additional recording of a sax player) was done in Nassau, Bahamas!

In the late '70's and mid 80's, Compass Point was one of the great recording studios of the world. Artists came from around the world to record in the Bahamas. ...
Some of the well known artists who were a part of early Compass Point were: AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, U2, Robert Palmer, The B-52's, Talking Heads, Dire Straits, Bob Marley, Eric Clapton, The Cure, Adam Ant, James Brown, Duran Duran, David Bowie, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Mick Jagger, Whitesnake, ELO, Serge Gainsbourg, Status Quo, Tom Tom Club, Madness, Spandau Ballet, Third World, Grace Jones, Joe Cocker, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Eurythmics, Julio Iglesias, Power Station, Roxy Music, Thompson Twins, Wings, Ringo Starr, Julian Lennon, Bad Company, Average White Band, Carly Simon, and many others.

but memory's not life... and it's not love.
