Misfits - Famous Monsters,
By A Customer
This review is from: Famous Monsters Ltd Digipack (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic album, combining the original Misfits feel with much better produced sound, notably Doyle's guitar and Michale Graves' new improved voice, which is distinctly better than the vocals on "American Psycho". Jerry Only said once that if he ever made a record that was not better than his last, then he would quit the business. Well it is obvious to see that this is not necessary, as this is a clear improvement. The horror jokes wear thin after a while, but the music more than makes up for this. There is a clear Fifties fell to a couple of the tracks, such as the doo-wop inspired Saturday Night, and the hellish rockabilly-style Scarecrow Man, which show that the 'fits acknowledge their roots. Highlights of the album include Forbidden Zone, Scream and hunting Humans. True, one or two songs might be considered mediocre, but then there are 18 songs on the album. Essential listening for any fiend.
