This was the third studio album for Mike + the Mechanics, and a highly underrated one. It came out around the same time as Genesis' We Can't Dance, which Mike Rutherford was also committed to, so there was no tour behind this album, which greatly hurt it. Still, this was a strong pop album for the group.

Paul Carrack and Paul Young split lead vialduties on the album, quite a 1-2 punch as both have fantastic voices. Carrack and Adrian Lee shared keyboard duty, and Peter Van Hooke took the drums on the album.

The vibe is definitely 80's pop throughout, and perhaps 1991 was just a little late for this type of music, but taken out of that context, it holds up well with anything fun the mid-80's. "Word of Mouth" is a strong, fun crowd singalong kind of song. "Let's Pretend It Didn't Happen" is a great, regretful song, music is uptempo and the lyrics are full of regret. This is their wheelhouse, pop music with lyrics that are a bit deeper than most pop songs. "Everybody Gets A Second Chance" is something of a throwback, it has sorry of a sixties Motown feel about it.

I don't want to oversell this album, it's not their best, but it is a solid album that never really wad given a chance to succeed. If you like their other music, or 80's pop in general, you'll enjoy Word Of Mouth.
