CD Reviews

The Best Since The 70's !
Peter Stirling | Aurora, Ontario Canada | 05/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow! Just when you thought that the band was long past their prime, they come back with the rocking fury of their 70's power updated by Billy Rankin's modern metal guitar stylings. The opening tune is the best thing they have recorded since "Telegram". A lot of the 80's material put out by Nazareth was very poor, but this CD is right up with "Hair of the Dog" and "Razamanaz". Well worth buying! The rockers rock hard, the mid tempo tunes are fun and the ballads are excellent."
One good song and a lot of s**t

"For a whole decade, Nazareth had the Midas touch. But something very strange happened as the 1980's began, and gold turned to dirt with a few exceptions. I just don't get it! How can a band that gave us so many unforgettable tunes end up in this mess? "No jive" includes only one good song and that's "Every time it rains". Although that one is very good, the rest of the songs are just bad and clearly below average. If you want a dose of the great Nazareth you should invest in the albums between the years 1973-1977, which are:Razamanaz (1973)
Rampant (1974)
Loud `n' proud (1974)
Hair of the dog (1975)
Play `n' the game (1976)
Close enough for rock `n' roll (1976)
Expect no mercy (1977)Start with the masterpiece "Expect no mercy" because that is Nazareth's proudest moment. And even `tho the band were uneven and sometimes horrible throughout the 1980's and parts of the 1990's, they managed to record a strong album in 1998 titled "Boogaloo"."
Nazareth - 'No Jive' (Griffin)
Mike Reed | USA | 12/03/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Although I only have something like a half a dozen Nazareth CD's,I can tell you that 'No Jive' is a decent all new material effort.Almost as good as the last album I've heard of theirs,'Sound Elixer'.The disc's first two cuts,"Hire And Fire" and "Do You Wanna Play House",I remember they included in their set the last time I saw them play live.Those two as well as "Keeping Your Love Alive" and "Thinking Man's Nightmare" are the best tracks here.'No Jive' has the trademark hard rock vocals of Dan McCafferty fully intact.Guitarist Manny Charlton left awhile back to be replaced by Billy Rankin(2nd guitarist on the 'Snaz' 2-lp).I notice the cover art here is similar to that of their 'Exercises' lp.I can NOW hear where Axl Rose just might've got some of his influence."
