Synopsis

Album Description
After NMA's debut album, the band's next move was to sign on with EMI, and with some experience under their belts and major-label backing, the group developed their sound and filled it out. No Rest for the Wicked is the result. More overdubs on guitar are evident, as are reverb effects on the voice and drums. Comparisons can be made with Killing Joke's sound. Sullivan writes some of his best rock songs for this release including 'Ambition,' 'No Rest,' and 'Drag it Down,' and he introduces a softer, more acoustic side to the group with 'Better than Them'. 2006.

Where vengeance hangs, no rest lets one drop; the best nma
blally@wvu.edu | west virginia | 04/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"it has been a while since slade signed my vinyl at the electric banana in pittsburgh. however, it is not forgotten. now, a tad older, with a tad more of a job, and band, i still dream of creating the transcendent mirages created in "no rest for the wicked". it is, in this novice's opinion, the most incorporative and, in certain ways, the most creative album of nma's discography. it has proven, to me, to be of substantial influence, along with eno and coltrane. for the nma virgin, it is a mix between u2's "unforgettable fire" and pure early punk. it is melodic and extremely intelligent. and, to these ears, beautiful."

"This is the music of my youth - raw and full of inspiration. The riffs and drums are powerful and the lyrics touch your soul. Like all the NMA CDs you will enjoy it forever - believe me."
Good 80 punk

"new model army was a very underrated 80's punk band. Good songs, good lyrics. Maybe they were bigger in UK than in US. This is maybe their best CD."
