(Same goes for TIME) I blame the producer for not pulling that out of her even though her writing is fantastic on this album.

Overall, Billy and Rick are extremely talented and fit in with the blues/funky sound of the rhythm section. I give kudos to Stevie for sticking in the band, even though her contributions are more appreciated on other songs. I'm not crazy about her songs. I love her vocals on Skies, and Love is Dangerous, Behind the Mask, and In the Back of My Mind. Huge love for the B section where Christine takes over in "In The Back of My Mind."
I agree with just about everything you said. Except for me personally, the production doesn’t bother me because it was in “vogue” for 1989-90.

Interesting track When It Comes To Love. The other two writers credited are two guys who've done a lot of writing together. Simon Climie at the time was famous as the vocal half of the short-lived Climie Fisher duo and went on to be Eric Clapton's producer/co-writer for some years. Dennis Morgan has done loads of writing with Billy on his solo albums.

Billy always seems to have collaborated very heavily with co-writers and his time in Mac is far from an exception. Mostly they're people he wrote solo stuff with too - the exception to that is Hard Feelings which shares a co-writer with Wind Beneath My Wings.
Reuniting the Rumours line-up just produced 20 years of virtual silence. If Stevie didn't like the heat she should have quit the kitchen.

I know many will disagree - I have no desire to quarrel.

Peace and love everyone
