This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
5 albums from the largely unknown band ARCHIVE, starting from their 3rd studio album YOU ALL LOOK THE SAME, which is where they were just starting to find their "sound" after the eclectic mix of their first 2 albums. NOISE and LIGHTS develop their sound further, with some classic tracks, then CONTROLLING CROWDS is a bit of a curve ball with more varied and unusual tracks and a bit of a darker edge - some great material again. The odd one out in this set is UNPLUGGED, which seems like a pretty misconceived venture - ARCHIVE have always been more about sounds than songs, and stripping out the production really doesn't do the material any favours. Four out of five of the CD's are great though, and the set provides an excellent introduction to this under rated band.
