Customer Review

on 31 March 2001
Don't get me wrony "Acme" is not a bad, it's just that it's not brilliant. I have to say I really admire the production, the flow from one song to another deserves mentioning, espically as so many people worked with them on this. However all that praise should really go to their producer and collaborator Calvin Jonson, of the Dub Narcotic Sound System.
The problem I have with this ablum is that some how it just doesn't reach the heights of their previous works. Perhaps because of the heavy use colaboration the blues explosion have lost their own very distinc voice. Indeed I loved "Now I Got Worry" because it was all over the place, you simply don't know where they're going next. Saddly here one song sounds much the same as another.
However I'm a committed blues explosion fan and just adore their individual sound. This sound makes it very difficult to appreciate their work on first listen but because Acme is much more main-strem and listenable more people can connect with it. Thus if the name is new to you, you could do worse than buy this, if however you want the definative blues explosion ablum pick up "Now I Got Worry".
