Throw in a very heavy streak of melancholy, and it all adds up to never hearing a Sexsmith song on the radio.

Editorial Reviews:
Q (Magazine) (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Happily, Sexsmith no longer has a lump in his throat. As the dewy dawn uncertainties of 'The Morning Light' bring FOREVER ENDEAVOUR to a close, listeners might find themselves shedding a tear in relief."
