The Very Best of the many compilations of The Animals....,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Best of The Animals (Audio CD)
Eric Burden's voice is the memorable and unique element in this 'R&B meets mod' band's comprehensive compilation. All the charting numbers and the other more memorable flipsides and album tracks are here. The selection includes many tracks written by the leading American R&B anchormen together with a representative gathering of the band's own compositions. It's interesting that Burden's very strident, staccato voice fits the style so well. It's probably the gravelly low end coupled with the rasping mid-range that characterises The Animals 'version of events'. If you remember The Animals first-time-around this CD will make you smile with recognition. If you were not around then, it might remind you of more recent derivatives! "I can hear The Jam with the zest of The Stranglers!...."
