two decades of delectable decedance!
on 5 November 2003
sheeesh! been a long time coming but it's now here, the definative Motley collection spaning the bands 20 career.
The remastering of some of the older tracks from "too fast.." and "shout..", I feel don't do them any justice and that some things should be left well alone. Tonally they lack any middle gound and the warmth they once had in their rough and ready state. But a good trip down memory lane none the less.
For a man returning to his metal roots out of both nostalgia and a genuine love of the band it was good to hear some of the newer tracks "Punched in the teeth" and "bitter pill" are good solid pop and finds the band keeping up with technology in the studio whilst returning to the songwriting they were renowned for, clean, simple pop/rock.
Not too sure about their "dable" with loops and samples on "glitter" I think it was. Mmm
As a package you can't get a better deal, 45 mins of dvd and hours of music all for not much more than a normal double album (or even a single one in some instances). Superb Compilation.
