The band's second album, released in 1977 just after their debut record. Despite generally bad reviews from critics at the time, the album does have its shining moments ("Life From a Window" and "The Modern World", for example). But it is also interesting as a piece of history for its lyrical content, which, as the album's title promised, is a snapshot of a day in the life of the declining British Empire during the late 1970s. 8 bonus tracks from the BBC sessions.
