5.0 out of 5 stars Anything just got better 26 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
About time this got a new cd release! Original copies were going for as much as fifty quid on ebay. Suckers! And with the twelve inch mixes as well, this is a must have for a great price. The only track missing is the 'No sleep until Wednesday mix' of Eloise. But nevermind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much underated 14 May 2006
Format:Audio Cassette
Much underated MCA release from The Damned's more commercial (minus Captain Sensible) career. Baffled by the MCA's exclusion of the number 2 hit Eloise that failed to appear on this album it still makes fantastic listening. Anything is a swirling mixture of fairground and circus theatrics (Tightrope Walk), classic 80's goth (The Girl Goes Down), cult cinema tributes (Psychomania) and the exquisite title track (Anything). The only turkey on this album for me is perhaps the instrumental track The Portrait. This album still stands the test of time as enjoyable now as in '86. Vanian's theatrical vocals first aired on The Black Album return for some more melodrama. As amazing as they are you can't expect The Damned to play three chords forever...or can you?

4.0 out of 5 stars Anything: I like it! 13 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
For me first contact with the Damned came vis their hit single Grimly Fiendish, which instantly appealed to me as it bore more than a passing resemblance to Madness, my favourite band of my childhood. From there things only got better with Is It A Dream and Eloise and then Alone Again Or. I never bought anything by the Damned though I probably recorded some of the hits onto tape from the Radio 1 Top 40 countdown, but that would have been all.

Years later, when punk had ascended to its sparkly throne and been rather indulgently mythologised way beyond decency, I was to hear the earlier incarnation of the Damned, and whilst it was pleasant enough I wasn't leaping around in paroxysms of delight. But this was apparently the cool stuff, and Phantasmagoria/Anything-era Damned was most certainly not cool, and self-respecting music lovers were obliged to pooh-pooh it in accordance with protocol. Well, I wasn't having any of that, and I went hunting for the "uncool" Damned albums regardless, but to no avail for a long time. When finally somebody with a bit of mettle got around to spiffying them up and re-issuing them in 2009, I was delighted, and here I am with a two-disc delux edition of Anything.

Alone Again Or is as great as I remember it, and an example - as with the 7" version of Eloise (not collected here) - of a cover-version that can stand proud next to the original. The album weaves a meandering path through musical styles, always with a Hammer House Gothic charm. I am glad that the Damned had the ambition and drive to burst out of the straight-jacket-wearing punk scene, and go off inventing the likes of The Portrait - an elegant piano-based moody instrumental that must have had some punk-purists retching - or embracing Victorian melodrama or all manner of other ideas.

2.0 out of 5 stars A supporter or a fan? 8 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"I'll make my girl scream! I'll be her love machine!" screams Dave halfway through "Anything". In the history of Damned lyrics (discounting the abysmal Jack and the Beanstalk lp), these have got to be the greatest departure from what The Damned is all about. For me "Anything" is like your football teams new shirt. You don't like the colour or design, in fact you don't even know who the logo on the front represents, yet you fork out 60 for it anyway.Wearing it with pride. The Damned were (and still are) OUR TEAM! We were just so glad that they were finally getting some recognition and well deserved cash at last. Ironic that their biggest commercial successes were without the Captain and with possibly their worst two albums. But I went out and bought every single,LP, 12" and mix available. I'm also old enough to remember the tour and all the merchandise that went with it. Did I buy all that too? Of course I did.
How many tracks from the Phantasmagoria and Anything era do the current line up include in their set these days? Not many I reckon. Shadow of love, Street of dreams and Eloise are all that come to mind though I haven't seen them for a while.
Anything and Psychomania are great footstomping tunes but to be honest the rest of the album reeks of a band running short of ideas and as the sleeve notes record, in way too much of a hurry. Recent track like "Little Miss Disaster" and "Diamonds" from the "So, who's paranoid" album leave Anything in the shade and it's depressing to think that they'll never meet the mainstream ears they so deserve like The Damned did back in 1987 with a huge major label behind them.
The most underrated, under achieving band of all time? Possibly. One of the best? Definately. Not sure? Try "Damned, Damned, Damned", "Machine gun etiquette", The Black album" or "Strawberries" and decide for yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad 80s(Fairlight Synths) production!! 31 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Damned are one of my favourite bands, period! however this album is
the weakest along with the awful 'It's alright jack....'
'Anything' does have some good songs buried under the 80s glossy production,'Alone Again or' is a fine cover version ,& the epic 'In Dulce
Decorum'(once featured in an episode of 'Miami Vice')is wonderful piece
of gothic drama.The rest of the album sounds rushed & written in the studio.If you compare this album to 'Phantasmagoria', which had better songs, better production & the feel of a complete album,& stands up well
today even! Anything sounds just sounds well, erm.. like 1987.
I have to say the addition of an extra disc of 'B-sides' etc.. & extensive
liner notes make this a worthwhile purchase, that is why i have given 3 stars & not 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites Damned albums
My favorite Damned period is the pop/rock one,not the punk one ( except of course "Machine Gun ..." but this one is as much a pop as a punk album in my opinion ). Read more
