An Alternative History Of Rock,
By A Customer
This review is from: Sex : Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die (Audio CD)
If you're looking for one of those 'Best Of Punk' type albums then look elsewhere. This album is a compliation of the music that inspired one of the most important movements in popular culture. By turns, the music is electrifying, exciting and very strange indeed. On face value there seems to be few common factors between the tracks found here in terms of style - the common factors are, in fact, energy, spirit and startling originality. From the 'lost' rock classic of Have Love Will Travel by The Sonics, to the sheer insanity of 'Moster In Black Tights' by Lord Sutch. This excellent compilation provides a compact, alternative history of popular music. The highest praise I can give it is to say that you certainly won't own a compilation like it already! You need this.
