4.0 out of 5 stars A very good introduction to The Alarm 8 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The late 80's was the period where The Alarm could be said to have become more accessible to a wider listening audience, and this was the first example of this metamorphisis. It is still "typical Alarm" with powerful, meaningful lyrics, but sees the Alarm starting with a more "poppy" feel, with power ballads such as "Permanence in Change". This enhanced recording has some interesting extra tracks but the original tracks are still the best and a great introduction to this much-missed band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brilliant 18 Jan 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is rare to purchase a CD upon which every song is great. This CD has 21 excellent, powerful songs. The Alarm never got the credit it deserved and it really is a shame. They mixed rock, folk, blues and gospel sounds into their own style. Mike Peters is a brilliant vocalist and the guitar work is outstanding. What is also amazing is that the song "A Rose Beyond The Wall" was unreleased. "Shelter", "Eye of the Hurricane" and "Rain In The Summertime" are emotional whirlwinds of melody and crashing drums. I highly recommend this album without hesitation.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new wave-ish rock 12 April 2002
By Antonio Figl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the previous reviewer, just wanted to point out a curio. Hold on to your current _Eye Of The Hurricane_ CD, because Mike Peters in the sleeve notes points out how the band were dissatified with the final mix of the songs. So what you hear on this re-release is a different mix. Great to compare the two, of course, but I still like the keyboards mixed high on _Rescue Me_.
