"Are you curious,Damned? Do you need to "Feel Alright".Do you have a desire to "Ignite"? Or, could it be, that you just wanna... " Smash It Up"...
If you've ever wondered what the fuss is all about, or if you've heard their name and the usual high praise,ney... reverence...that the hushed tones imply.you'll want this CD/Tape/whatever,"The light at the end of the tunnel".
A compilation of the music that has made the "Damned" the
group that stands apart from the punk scene,while at the same time defining it.
Incredible instrumental arrangements highlighted by piano lead ins that will you leave you breathless. Brilliant razor sharp guitar riffs that crack through the ever impressive melodies and the wild raging ,yet chilling vocals of Dave Vanian combine to make a storm of musical mayhem.Put all together, the result is almost zen like. A perfect cracked cup. The imperfection that is flawless.
If youre a fan of punk,or music of any kind. You will find a friend in "The Damned".
This CD is a must have for the "Damned" fan. A perfect choice for the curious.The songs are all "Damned" classics. Songs that defined them and the music that they influenced.
Here in "The light at the end of the tunnel" is a cornerstone for any music collection.
Play it all the time and you'll still be surprised at the genius
of this incredible band.If you think all punk sounds the same, you haven't heard "The Damned".
So hurry up and grab a chunk of some of that "Lovely Money" and put it down for a copy of "The light at the end of the tunnel".
And just like the rest of us, you'll become an instant fan.
Then gather your friends around, put it on, and get "Damned" together.

"Light at the End of the Tunnel is my all-time favorite, and for good reason. It was the beginning of a new brand of music (Alternative), yet nothing has since equaled its tone and creativity. Truely unique."
