Neither Fish Nor Flesh (A Soundtrack of Love, Faith, Hope & Destruction) is Terence Trent D'Arby's second album, released in 1989 on Columbia Records. Coming off the heels of his highly success debut album Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D'Arby, suffice to say this album was highly anticipated. The album was panned by many critics at the time as being overly indulgent, scattered with pretentious song titles, and unfocused. Rolling Stone critic Mark Coleman described the album as "an inconsistent concept album... despite his aspirations toward Messianic rock stardom...".
The album can be seen as yet another example of the sophomore slump that many artists find themselves in when it comes time to release their second album. Maxwell's second album Embrya (1998) drew a lot of parallels to this album.
