5.0 out of 5 stars Now that's what i call music!, 5 Mar. 2004
By 
This review is from: Second Pirate Sessions (Audio CD)
Over 2 hours of music from the mighty Nurse With Wound. The original 'Rock N Roll Station' album (which is included here) was a huge surprise to NWW fans back in 1994, as it was so different from everything they had done before. It was originally advertised as a Nurse With Wound dance album. However, that's not strictly true - there are no Chemical Brothers remixes here! Basically, it's NWW using dance music ideas, but in their own inimitable way, i.e. WEIRD! It's more Chris & Cosey than Chemical Brothers.....but as i said, still retaining their unique oddity. NWW's subsequent album 'Who Can I Turn To Stereo' used similar structures, so if you've heard that album, you'll know what i mean (also if you have heard the previous album 'Thunder Perfect Mind' - track 2 of that is the closest to what we have here). The album works very well, as it doesn't kowtow to any basics of the day - it just sounds alien, as all NWW stuff does.
The 'Second Pirate Session' package includes an out-takes cd. This, i find, is as wonderful as the actual 'Rock N Roll Station' album and although some of the material is quite simmilar, it was a great idea to release as a whole. There is even a version of Frank Zappa's 'Trouble Every Day', under the title of 'Subterranean Zappa Blues' - it's an absolute stomper!
Overall, this is a fine release and one well worth getting even if you already have the 'Rock N Roll Station' album.
