hey its still spinal tap!,
This review is from: Back From The Dead [Special Edition] (Audio CD)
Back from the Dead's songs have been already been made available to be heard before its offcial release so having checked most of the songs out all i can say at first i questioned the re-mixes of their classic tracks from their semi-classic debut album in Sex Farm, Big Bottom, America, Flower People (twice), Cups and Cakes rather than em being re-made for the album to go flying off the shelves to cash in on their 80's cult fame they stand the test of times well (again in 21st century form) and will endure more rib tickling moments whilst Heavy Duty which features Steve Vai and Phil Collen lives up to its title with its blusey moments, and Back from The Dead is a superb song that would have come straight from Alice Cooper's Billion Dollar Babies.
Also you will need a patient ear and nerves of steel to withstand the 3 Jazz Oydessy songs which range from lounge to yes Jazz which may not appeal to Tap fans whilst the live earth song of Warmer Than Hell is downright daft and good in equal measure which shows why tap never take themselves to seriously like their more famous counterparts.
As for bonus contents i reckon the pop up artwork of the band predicted as super heroes standing on a stage (stonehenge style) minus yes the drummer will be better than the DVD which is basically the members running thru each song depending on how your attention levels cope.
Otherwise a welcome return from Tap but don't count on em releasing another album since its been like another 16 years since they made Break like the wind and if its goin to be another 16 years for the other one since they will either be singing with their zimmer frames or pushing up daisies.
