Keep a Classic as it is !,
This review is from: Slanted And Enchanted (Audio CD)I had this album on vinyl when it first came out , and have just got this CD of the original album and can't believe it sounds so contemporary.
I had heard the American version with bsides and live stuff , which really watered down what is a great album , and a great album should not be tampered with (thankyou Nirvana , Zeppelin, Stones etc), but labels like to squeeze the last cent out of fans. Putting this album back in its original form was hopefully the work of a band that cared , they even used to prepare toast on stage for the audience !
"Summer Babe" is a pure Summer classic , "No Life Singed Her ", "Zurich is Stained ", "Our Singer " all set out the boundaries for what has become a wierd and wonderful direction for alternative music .The word "classic " is all too often over used, but this album has stood the test of time and fully deserves it.
