Cock Robin, "After Here Through Midland" / 1987 Review by: Dan Reem
Lyrically, this album is among the most intelligent released in pop music, I believe. Throughout, it focuses on the beauty and fragility of love. That may sound like a cliche, but the songs consistently throw new light on old ideas. Kingsberry sounds like he's balanced on the edge of devotion and obsession most of the time. If I were Anna LaCazio I would've been a bit nervous.

One disadvantage to the album: LaCazio's voice. It sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

Best tracks: The Biggest Fool of All, Coward's Courage, Just Around the Corner.
