CD Reviews

Second best album after Framed
Ronald | 04/06/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The best studio album of SAHB in my opinion is Framed with the awesome song Isobel Goudie. But Next comes next. There is no weak track on this cd. Outstanding in my opinion are the two longest tracks The Faith Healer and The Last of The Teenage Idols. Gang Bang and the title song are great, too. Many people say SAHB is underrated. I don't agree with that. Unknown yes. But I don't know a person, who knows the songs of the band and is underrating SAHB!"

"This was THE album I walked around Highschool with....cover out so everyone could see.. Alex's first. He took a good bar band called "TearGas" and turned them into S.A.H.B. Alex had SOOOOO much stage presence,but to me at that time (mid 70's) he was OLD...as old as my dad...but hot damn..he held you as an artist...this band ROCKED......Live they were untouchable Scotlands answer to Alice..everysong had you rivited to you seat..or ..up and screaming whateverAlex decided.I loved this guy so much i named my first son after him...buy the damn album......."

"Stunning, and not a little bit depraved. The Sensational Alex Harvey Band's second album, "Next", is a 7 song masterpiece of attitude, swaggering from the unhinged, chaotic blues of "Swampsnake" into the singalong scuzz of "Gang Bang" and imploding into the stoner drone of "Faith Healer" - and that's just side one. The flip side features the AC/DC-on-crank of "Giddy Up a Ding Dong", the truly weird "Vambo Marble Eye", and the three part 50's-ballad-to-prepunk-bamalama epic "Last of the Teenage Idols". And sitting amongst all this madness is an empathetic, unlikely version of Jacques Brel's cabaret classic "Next". And it all sounds as daisy fresh as it did thirty years ago. A perfect pick for your next party in honor of debauched, wayward intellectuals praying for apocalypse."
