"Following the lacklustre performance of Dancing On The Couch it would be five years before the release of Go West's third and probably most complete album Indian Summer. Though the album was a long time in the making, there is no doubting that it was very much worth the wait as Go West bounced back in some considerable style. Recorded in the US, the album reflects Go West's growing reputation as accomplished purveyors of blue-eyed pop/soul and the wide range of soulful ballads alongside the upbeat joyfulness of songs such as Faithful, a major hit in 1992, only served to re-establish Go West as one the UK's greatest musical exports of the 80s and beyond. The album gave rise to five singles The King Of Wishful Thinking, Faithful, What You Won't Do For Love, Still In Love and Tell Me (in the US). The best known song from the album, The King Of Wishful Thinking, originally featured on the multi-million selling soundtrack for the movie Pretty Woman and remains their biggest selling single to date in Worldwide terms. Of the other singles, Faithful remains a firm favourite amongst fans and is a stalwart in Go West's live set. To my mind this album remains Go West's most accomplished album to date and is worthy of a place in music fan's record collection."
"This 1992 comeback album from Go West is remarkable in that it isn't a step down from their mid-1980s heyday. Most bands' "comeback" albums sound like they should never have been released, but Peter Cox's superb soul voice powers this recording. With the exception of "The Sun and the Moon," side one is brilliant. The opening track, "Faithful" is a great, shout-the-chorus song, with earnest vocals, and the other hit, "King of Wishful Thinking," is an up-tempo romp. Other highlights are Kirk Whalum's sax opening on "Still in Love" and the slow cover of "What You Won't Do For Love." Unfortunately, Cox's great vocals take a holiday on the closing side one song, "The Sun and the Moon." The lyrics are sappy to the extreme, and his emotive voice overpowers this weak ballad. Side two is a little less memorable, but still very good. Highlights are the ballad "Bluebeat" and the super "I Want You Back." On the latter track, Cox rips into a backing arrangement of Richard Drummie's that sounds different than anything Go West has recorded before. With the exception of these two songs and "A Taste of Things to Come," the side two lyrics miss the mark. "Count Me Out" sounds like a million other songs, and "Forget that Girl" could have done without the incredibly silly line: "You're gonna be walking around / With a stone in your shoe / 'Til you forget that girl." A few minor quibbles aside, it's great that Go West could release such a wonderful comeback album, and it's disappointing that they broke up soon after this one was released."
