Enuff Z'Nuff really knows how to make killer hard-edged pop music with great retro leanings. On this, their tenth CD, they continue that tradition in fine form. The band has put together a collection of pieces that should really please both the long-time listener and the new fan. The material on the CD ranges from bouncy pop in the vein of early Beatles to harder edged power pop to heavy metal and even ELO oriented sounds. Smashing Pumpkin's Billy Corgan joins the group on a dark, hard edged take on the Cheap Trick number Everything Works If You Let It.

"Let's first get it straight: no matter what preconcieved notions you may have about what these guys are about, DON'T fall for the so-called "similar genre" stuff that compares them to primarily 80's hair metal bands (like Warrant, Poison, etc., etc.). Perhaps a few songs many years ago (especially due to ex-guitarist Derek Frigo's obnoxious, non-stop, cocaine fueled adventures in whammy bar land), but a much more accurate and most well deserved comparison would be The Beatles, with an indefinable twist and charm of thier own. Being fortunate enough to have spent a great deal of time close to Chip and Donnie, I want to address something that most others seem to miss: these 2 guys are without a doubt among the most talented and intense musicians in the business (just ask the endless parade of professionals from Eddie Van Halen to McCartney himself!); through all the years and all the insanity, Chip's tremendous personal strength and ability (look up a bio of the band's history of the ups and downs) and Donnie's pure genius, they have created something truly special. OK! Now the review of "10"...fantastic! Even the work they did with Clive isn't up to this level. The opener, "There Goes My Heart", has a great "Got To Get You Into My Life" feel to it,setting the tone for a very Beatlesque album overall...each person will have different favs (mine would be the opener, Your Heart's No Good, Fly Away, Wake Up, Suicide, and Holiday), but what makes this such a great album is mostly the subtle things that alone may seem insignifigant, but together add up to create some great sounds...not that "wall of guitar" sound, but interesting textures and mixes, lots of little surprises...the kinds of songs that you make new discoveries with each listen. Combine that with great writing and singing from Donnie, and Chip's incredible grasp of not only the bass, but everything that you hear; the movement, the tones, the "vibe". I have tried to give an account here that will hopefully be more helpful than most people's "I like it/I hate it" type of review. I feel that it's important to try to give an intelligent account of music like this, especially when they have been swept aside mistakenly by people's incorrect first impressions. Do yourself a favor and get this CD, and see what your're missing!"
The most under rated band in the world.

"I have been a Z'Nuff fan for about 13 years. These guys are great. This is just another fabulous album from a top-notch band. Buy it and you will not be disappointed."
