This is a folllow-up entry to the Frontier Theory album Atlantic that I digitized in 2011. I lauded that 1987 album as something akin to what the creme de la creme of what the 415 Records roster (Translator, Red Rockers, etc) were responsible for. The next, and apparently final frontier for FT would be the slightly lengthier No Waltz in the Meadow, presenting itself as a little more streamlined than the debut, featuring several songs that could slot evenly between rockers and ballads. Definitely on the same wavelength as Dreams So Real and Fire Town. A cover of the pop standard "Summertime" is really unnecessary. "The One That Got Away" and "Madeline" bear a folky lilt, which takes some getting used to, particularly in comparison to Atlantic's sturdier poise.
And speaking of Atlantic, I recently obtained a better sounding copy, and have re-ripped it anew. The d/l links for both are below, and you can reference the original post here.
