I still don't know what to say about the album. I don't listen to it quite often, but I think it's not so bad.
I listen to the Agenda more than Hotspot. The Forgotten Child is amazing, I love it so much. I also think "For every moment" should be on the album.

This is how I would rank/group the songs from one to ten with ten being the best value.

10: I don't wanna
9: Will-o-the-wisp, Happy people, Hoping for a miracle, Monkey business, Burning the heather
8: You are the one, Dreamland, Only the dark
7: Wedding in Berlin

That's an average of 8.6. So rounding off, if I was reviewing this album I would give it 9/10 or 4.5/5 stars.

Although there are songs on Electric and Super that I like as much as anything on Hotspot or more, overall I think this is the most consistently good album of the trilogy and one of their best albums. I've been listening to it a lot over the last couple of weeks and I never feel the need to skip a song.

Agreed, the only track that is a bit of a skipper for me is Monkey Buisness.

Hotspot has definitely a synthwave vibe going, esp. Only the dark.
