5 stars is not enought...

"I own every Danzig-era Misfits release and to me this is hands down the best one of them all. A solid album with 17 awesome tracks plus a bonus track of studio screw ups. Every song on here is a great listen plus the sound quality isnt that bad compared to his other recordings. There are alot of reviews claiming Walk Among Us is there defining masterpiece but I disagree; its great but not as great as Static Age."

"The Misfits is just a great rock and roll band. I m very enthusiatic with bands that put in first place, not matter what, to the songs,.. such as Nirvana, Ramones... I think "The Misfits" is among them. Static Age is the best example of The Misfits' songwriting ability. Misfits' songs are complete: good lyrics, catchy groove, balls, edgy, original, intellectual, violent, honest,...and (what most rock and roll bands forget..) FUN!!!!"

"It's too bad Danzig never got his due back in the day when it really mattered, and I don't mean 87'/88'when I first got into the Fits and they were enjoying a rebirth among punks,skaters,metalheads,goths,etc. due to Samhain/Danzig hysteria and Metallica covers, but the late 70's second wave of punk this album was every bit as classic, but in my opinion, far more complex and innovative than the Ramones debut on Sire records. However, the poor sells on the Fits own Cough/Cool 7"(Blank/Mercury Records 1977),Ramones S/t,Ramones "Leave Home",and Ramones "Rocket to Russia along with the debuts of Blondie,Television,Richard Hell,Talking Heads,Dead Boys,Dictators,etc.(most of the New York,New Jersey scene)virtually shelved any prospects of "Static Age" being released on a major "mainstream" record label(i.e. Mercury Records)! Even if Mercury had decided to invest in and promote the band, Danzig would of had to "revise and edit" some of the most obscene(even by today's standards)lyrics to ever have been laid to paper! Today's supposed punk bands, with mabye the exception of the Vandals, and a few other more "underground" bands, would'nt dare touch the lyrical anarchy and quintessential Lo-Fi production of these the legacy of punk has...
do not delude yourselves, nu-schoolers...been tarnished by a 3rd
and 4th generation of punks who frankly, don't understand the concept of D.I.Y. integrity and values, having basically "sold out" the philosophical spirit of the original movement! None the less, the failure of "static"
being released inspired one of the first truley D.I.Y. labels, PLAN 9,created by Glenn with little or no funds, but a lotta heart and ambition! Ahh, Now that I'm finished with my history lesson rant, Static Age can finally shed light on the glory of the original sound of the 'Fits, as the tracks on Legacy of Brutality and Collections 1 & 2 were dubbed over by Glenn...guitar and bass...
in the mid 80's to give a bigger,brighter,punchier/atmospheric sound...?... which enhanced a few tracks, but mainly handicapped most of them...Spinal Remains, Hybrid Moments, Comeback, T.V. Casualty, Angelf**k, Last Caress, Return of the fly as an example...On "Static" their crisp, tight, and clear(especially Jerry's Bass, finally) and the subtle Elvis-esque, Morrison-esque, and Orbison-esque nuances on the vocals that really shine
and validate the legend of Glenn Danzig's vocally haunting, mesmerizing pipes! If your a nu-schooler lookin' for somethin' authentically old-school, but unlike anything you've heard in today's already been done before, rehashed, over-polished, ready for a movie soundtrack sonic mess that passes as music...somethin' raw and untamed...look no further than Static Age!!!"
