Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternatively Better!, 3 April 2012
By 
This review is from: An Alternative Solution (Audio CD)
I couldn't disagree more with "Mom in Tennis Shoes". When I first heard the original 'A Final Solution', I hated it. Being a mesh fan for 20 years, I felt they had gone too far away from their roots. Not song/lyric-wise, as the collection was unmistakably still mesh, but musically. Guitars and drums, which had disappointingly gained greater prominence on their previous 'We Collide' had by now far outweighed the electronics to a point that made them begin to sound ordinary. I can now listen to that album more objectively and accept it for what it is, but 'An Alternative Solution' is really what AFS would have been like if they had recorded it a decade ago. Every song here is an improvement on the original mix! I also like the additional tracks on the second disc, and hope that in particular the brilliant 'You'll Never Understand' and 'Save Everyone' indicate the future direction for this superb underrated band.
