5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered remixed and rediscovered treasure, 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Close to the Edge (Audio CD)
Probably most who will buy this will probably have the original already . It is a prog rock classic, the best YES album ever in my opinion, so whats new ? Well even if you already have this it isstill worth buying, as usual Steven Wilson has done agreat job remastering and doing new stereo mixes , as well as 5'.1 ones on the dvd audio The sound quality is excellent and not at all digital sounding but retaining the warmness of the original mix. This release is worth it for the extras alone, We have an alternate And You and I and also early run throughs of Siberian Khatru but maybe the best is the early studio version of the title track, More sparse than the original album version it sounds maybe even more powerful, hearing Chris Squires throbbing bass and Brufords drums against Howes guitar and Andersons vocals and wakemans keyboards so clear, just amazing. cant recomend this enough, a true classic !

4.0 out of 5 stars Back where they belong !!!!, 28 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Honor Is All We Know (Audio CD)
Rancid are back and this is another great album, full of catchy punk songs, but with a more raw production this time that fits the vibe perfectly, in fact maybe the best production of a Rancid ever, the energy is amazing with almost an oi feel on a lot of songs , to pick any favourites is hard as they sre so many but Raise your fist and Collision course are maybe mine, there are a couple of ska songs or 3 on the mp3 version and these are great too, but mostly it is straight ahead punk rock from start to finish ! maybe after Dominoes you thought Rancid were going soft, think sgain !!!

The living dead dolls are either something you will love or hate, I just love them and Deadbra Ann is one of the best, slightly cuter than her bigger sister this little beauty is a miniture version at only 4 inches high but very detailed none the less, with 'real' clothes and shoes !

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beatles of punk are back !!! Lets party like it's 1976 !!, 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Punk Rock Menopause (Audio CD)
The Boys were one of our first bands to come out of the punk movement in the mid seventies, they were always much more musical than other bands of that genre, with vocal harmonies, and tight playing, now 32 years after their last studio record here comes another, Thankfully unlike many comeback albums by other bands they have not attempted a rewrite of previous songs and what you get here are 13 great new songs and not one filler. some songs hit you straight away and some are growers making this album something you will want to hear again and again. Some you just cant get out of your head as they are so infectous, rock and roll at times, power pop at it's best, Pure quality . every song will be someones favourite !!

5.0 out of 5 stars the real Status Quo, 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lets face it no disrespect to the current Quo but without Lancaster and Couglan they simply don't rock as hard. So it was so exciting when the original group got back together again but to be honest I never expected them to sound this good again. Sound wise this gig could have been lifted from 1977 . It has all the fire and rawness of the classic Quo sound. Great to hear Alan Lancaster singing again and the best songs are his like backwater and Just take me ! Great to hear Rossi too taking a back seat and playing some fantastic lead guitar . only minor gripes are some songs like In my Chair and Oh baby which to me could have been replaced by much better songs from the back catalogue like Roll over lay down or Caroline ? The tour documentary is great too. this is a must for any hardcore Quo fans who lost intrest when they became a pop band. Francis Rossi has recently described the Frantic four reunuion as a mess ! unbelivable this is Quo at their very best !

4.0 out of 5 stars Best British punk band that never made it big, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Boys were one of Englands first punk bands but unfortunatly did not get the success that The Clash and Pistols got but they sure derserved it, they were well ahead of their time and progressed musically ion each album, writing very melodic songs.
This DVD is filmed in 2 places in England in 1980 and Germany in 1991 and both are unfortunatly poor quality, the sound being better in 1980 but the visuals being very blurred and the other way round in 91, having said that I really enjoyed watching this, both performances are very entusiastic and raw and ready so capture the punk sprit, and on the German one the band also do a set as their alter egos The Yobs punking up some Xmas songs, and are later joined by Campino and various members of German punk band Die Token Holsten, So If you are a Boys fan this is recommended but bearing in mind the quality is not so good may not win any new fans over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second album from one of the original punk bands, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The second album from The Boys is as it's title suggested full of poppy punk songs, From opener Brickfield Nights surely one of the classic punk/pop songs of all time in an alternative universe this would have been no 1 ! This album is more varied than their first album with even a latin song ( sway ) and a ballad too but it has plenty punk/rockers, USI
John Plains memories of a youth club romance ! and Classified susie telling the tale of one of those girls this has some great songs and like the first album has been remastered by the bands Matt dangerfield with an extra CD of b sides, demos ect and a great booklet continuing the story of this iconic band

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut from one of the punk originals, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the UK's first punk bands The Boys never had the commercial success of the likes of the Clash ot Pistols but time has been very kind to them cos their songs sound as fresh as ever. From opener Sick on you originally recorded by band member Cas steels first band the Hollywood Brats this is a punk classic and many other songs follow in that punk/rock and roll vein, their singing was always much more melodic than that of the other bands around that time. some great songs on here, The first 2 singles I Don't care and First Time should have been hits, First Time is one of the best punk songs up there surely with Teenage Kicks
Guitarts/singer Matt Dangerfield has done a great job of remastering and theres an extra CD of various songs in demo, or the single versions and a great booklet telling you the story of this band. Definitly an album that stands up well with time.
