Episode 23: Howard Jones – Dream Into Action (1985) Part 3
After a bit of a break to attend a cider festival, Brian and Sarah are back and ready to finally tackle the second side of this iconic sophomore album by Howard Jones. They jump right into an analysis of the six songs on side 2 of the US cassette release.
Part 3: Track by Track, continued
Side two, like side one, features six tracks for the listeners' enjoyment. Only one of them had a video released for it, and what a video it was! Brian and Sarah have a good time discussing the video for "Look Mama," and then Brian actually makes Sarah laugh until she cries with his misunderstanding of lyrics in "Bounce Right Back." However, not all of the conversation is as lighthearted; later songs feature discussions about the Tao Te Ching and the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism.

Part 4: Final Review and Rating
As he often does throughout the course of an album discussion, Brian has made it quite clear how much he enjoys "Dream Into Action." He asks to go first with his review and rating, which leaves the audience in suspense a little longer about Sarah's final review. She has made a lot of positive comments during the three episodes about this album, but is she finally ready to hand out her first-ever five record-adapter rating? You'll have to listen to find out!
