I ’ve met people who were fascinating for five minutes but dull over an entire evening. Reconciled wore we down after a while, but “Everywhere I Go” in isolation is almost wonderful. I say “almost” because the cheesy synthesizer at the end nearly lets the air out of it. Still, for four minutes it’s the very modern model of edgy, more Bunnymen than U2 come to think of it. The B side is a slow march through the past, “Tore The Old Place Down,” which again benefits from being alone. It may be that The Call works wonder in small dollops but (like Big Country) can seem so much sloganeering or musical soldiering in bigger batches. Also, the bearded Been has no business making those impassioned-for-an-instant “eeh” and “aah” sounds since, to my knowledge, Barry White is the only bearded singer who could pull off sexy.
