Nostalgic trip back to the eighties!
on 8 September 2000
After having heard a track by the Alarm on an old compilation tape I decided to buy a CD by the group as I had no other material. I plumped for The Best Of compilation as I figured the singles collection would give me a better idea about the groups musical leanings. The album is a mixture of soft rock ballads and fast and furious upbeat tracks, my particular favourite is Spirit Of 76, a song about teenage years growing up in a small town and the different ways peoples lives unfold. I could go through the whole album but I'll just pick out a few more must hear tracks 68 Guns, Blaze Of Glory and Where Were You Hiding When The Storm Broke are all quite evocative of the era! If you'd like a trip down memory lane I'd recomend this CD, I always find good music stands the test of time and this certainly does.
