FM: Tonight (1987)
Any lingering question as to the direction that FM was taking in the mid to late 80s was put to rest with this record. The band even covered a Beach Boys tune. The lead-off track--Magic (in Your Eyes)--is a finely-crafted pop song. I can't really complain, but the rest of the record does not fair so well. Dream Girl and She Does What She Wants are insipid. I miss the early prog-jazz-space influences. I probably bought this because I had everything else the band had recorded, so why not?
