I agree with your review for the most part.  However I am going to defend the "ballads" on the album.  Unwritten Sacrifice isn't a ballad, being their usual anti-war song which has become a staple of every album.  Neither is The Art Of Compromise which I would say was a mid-tempo rocker which just happens to have a piano intro.

Don't Fall Asleep is I agree the weak link in the album for me but it is a ballad and so its slow pace is understandable.  Wisdom's Had Its Day on the other hand is again not a ballad but a slow tempo rocker with a serious subject matter.

I think it does an album a disservice when you label all slow songs ballads when they aren't.

I used 'ballad' hesitantly for 'Unwritten Sacrifice' and I would have to agree with you that maybe it is not. 'Wisdom Had its Day' though I would definitely classify as more of a power ballad. The subject matter shouldn't really play into if it's a ballad or not.

It depends on your definition of 'ballad' really, if you take it as just a slow tempo, typically romantic song or just a slower tempo song on an album wit typically clean guitar melodies/ acoustic guitar, and/or piano..
I mean I would classify Metallica's 'Fade to Black' as a ballad, power ballad more so but still, even though in parts it's heavier than anything on this album it still has a lot of the elements of a ballad.
There's nothing wrong with either form of ballad anyway :)

I love this game.  I think it is very easy to play, long and involved but easy to learn.  My only complaint is that you can't play with just 2 players.

I am going to add one name to the list - Harrison Ford.  I point to his performances in Witness, The Mosquito Coast, Working Girl, The Fugitive and Presumed Innocent as examples of films he should at least have been given an Oscar nomination for but so far only Witness has proven fruitful.  I would love him to get an Oscar other than an honorary one.

One of the best ghost stories put into song.  Kind of song that should be a fixture on any Halloween themed album.

For some reason my favourites list is going on to autoplay and I ahve no idea how to switch it off.  yes there is the little button you can click on to stop it from putting on the next track but if I then lclick on another track in my favourites list the autoplay is switched back on.

Can anyone help?

Relativity.  Yes the SID chip was so much better than the ZX Spectrum's standard sound chip so yes, comparing like for like the SID chip is always going to sound better.  However, taken purely as a piece of music for the 48K Spectrum and comparing it to other Speccy tunes it is actually a very good piece indeed.
