im 18 again!!!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dirk Wears White Sox (Audio CD)
Ive never heard this since 1984 when my tastes, lifestyle etc went in different directions.
Im now, middle aged, testing my youthful tastes, and I thought, since the new resurgence of Adam I thought, lets give Sox a whirl and see if it was really as good as my memory recalled.It wasn't....it was better!!!What a fantastic album.
Oh my memory of the vinyl singles I had and this album just took me straight back to 79.
Cartrouble came on and I was back there instantly.
Nine Plan Failed, Day I Met God, Cleopatra, Table Talk.
This album holds up unbelievably well with some of todays indie bands and can't recommend this enough to the younger generation.
Some reviewers have commented on the production lacking, but I think the reverse, it has a no nonsense sound to it which makes it sound raw in a great way.Its not punk per se, more a cross of avante garde, indie, etc.
Lyrically dark, with which some might find offensive, and as far away from the Prince Charming Ants as you could get.
I guarantee you will love this album.I did, and now I find, I still do.
great bonus tracks also, Zerox, Physical, Kick etc.
