Its No Grave Disorder
on 22 December 2008
Ok, I confess, I got this on download for around £6 - so it represents a bit more value to me, but I have to say, its a disappointment after Grave Disorder, which I really liked.
Another reviewer has commented that there is no rage & fury, well, its a long time since 1977, things & people move on - so I can forgive that. But for me, this album doesn't quite know what it wants to be. A bit of Eloise era, a bit of pop, a bit of Floyd. Its a bit like an all you can eat buffet, you end up with a plate full, but it loses its identity.
However, Little Miss Disaster is a cracking number - but was released a few years back now.
Still a great live act (not many bands that staretd life back then can say the same - my last Stranglers gig was awful) & still a reasonable album - just not as good as I hoped for & almost has an end of era feel about it.
I have to ask, what next for The Damned?
