The latter can be witnessed when listening to the self-produced original version of Family Of Man which is not on this album but on the B side of the Stepping Stone 12" and sounds somewhat embarassingly naive.
But - The Farm did write some decent tunes, and the expert production of Madness' Graham McPherson guaranteed a certain quality control of their output. The singles taken from Spartacus are its commonly acknowledged highlights: Groovy Train still rocks many a dancefloor, whereas All Together Now has survived the commercial radio variety erosion. The album's third single, Don't Let Me Hurt Me - Johnny Thunders - Hurt Me, is one of its weaker tracks.
But then it also features further cool indie tunes as Hearts And Minds and Sweet Inspiration, whereas Higher And Family Of Man - The Farm - Spartacus Live (VHS) and Very Emotional preferably in their original versions are good club tracks. Special mention to the harakiri guitar solo in the new version of Family Of Man.
