CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not sure what they are (soft punk? acoustic folk alternative?), but they are much deeper and more talented than any Brit pop 80s bands like Big Country. They're fairly slow (a little more energetic than Toad the Wet Sprocket), somewhat political (probably not as angry as Rage Against the Machine, close to Ani Difranco) and kind of folky sounding. i listen to a LOT of music (ska/alt/punk), and NMA has been one of my very, very favorite bands since i first saw them on MTV 120 minutes in '87. This CD has their best known songs, and it's just plain great. i just wish it was easier to get their stuff in the US - most of their material seems to be imports, which makes them expensive and hard to find in stores hereWhy they haven't been more popular in the US is beyond me. It's not radical fringe music, no more so than Ben Folds Five, Toad the Wet Sprocket or NoFX, all of which have been semi-commercially successful here"

"That's pure rock with pure rythms. plenty of energy is given thru all songs. if you like strong and straigh notes, you'll love it."
