Format: Audio CD
This is the Dogs D'Amour debut album, resurfacing almost 20 years after its original release - which is great for those of us who were a bit young at the time but discovered them later on~(circa Errol Flynn in my case). The audio quality of the songs ranges from OK to quite poor - apparently it's from a copy of a copy, so it sounds rather like a much abused record at times, although without the jumps. I'd give it 4 stars because of this problem, but the songs just pull it right back up. there. If you've heard all the Dogs albums, you'll be used to hearing Tyla's voice get older as it goes through - listen to Graveyard of Empty Bottles then Happy Ever After and you'll see what I mean. This album just takes it back even further - Tyla sounds really young and a lot less assured vocally. There are songs that Dogs fans will recognise from later albums: a bass guitar-heavy Heroine, a lazy, debauched The State I'm In and a slightly less bouncy How do you Fall in Love again. These songs act as a nice introduction, but the other songs soon come into their own. Like most Dogs albums, I started with a favourite song, but then the rest grow on you until it's hard to pick one out, but Don't Ask Me to Say I Love You and Girl in Black are early front-runners. I’m listening to the album again as I write this though, and I could keep changing those two names as the album progresses.
Quality and voice aside, these songs are easily placed as early Dogs - it's that kind of bouncy rock that they started with and returned to with Happy Ever After, lacking the stronger bluesy element of the intervening albums like Uncharted Heights of Disgrace.
The two video clips on the CD are a fairly cute bonus - the video quality is a little blurry (unless that's the speed of my PC, but I don't think so).
