Worth it for the old stuff,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Never Ending Endeavour (Audio CD)
This CD compiles all the odds and ends of Big Drill Car's career. 15 tracks in all. There's some great songs on here- their covers of 'Surrender' and 'I Don't Mind' along with the alternate version of 'Take Away' to name a few standouts. Definitely worth getting for these alone. I really wish they'd left it there, unfortunately.....
There's also five new tracks and to be honest, they're pretty grim. Dreary, plodding and uninspired, displaying none of the flair and energy of early albums. Even 'No Worse For The Wear' was a masterpiece compared to this stuff. Shame, as it's the original line up and I hoped they might be able to do better than the half hearted retread on display here. Worse still, these tracks are first on the disc so if you don't want your memories of a great band tarnished, jump straight to track 6 and enjoy.
