"What a tragedy that Atco Records did not know what to do with Enuff Z'Nuff. The management was poor and they did not know what they truly had, and by that time the Grunge fad was already knocking adding insult to injury. As you will read elsewhere, there was (and still is) IMMENSE talent that was initially bundled in the wrong package (image). Who's call that was I am not sure. Enuff Z'Nuff and the Vie/Z'Nuff combo should go down as one of the greatest ever in the history of music but we'll just have to be content knowing that they will never get the respect they truly deserve. This is easily one of the most potent releases of the 90's and it still holds up well today. Whenever I get trapped by that homogenized dreck that dominates radio today, can always count on this disc to remind me that well crafted melodic rock can show today's chumps how to make some real music.
Along with the great Neil Finn and Marshall Crenshaw, Enuff Z'Nuff can be added to the "Most Underappreciated Artists Of Their Time" list."
The album that ruined the band

"I'm amazed at the generous reviews I've seen for this album. Although I'm a fan of the band, this album, along with with their jarring image re-dux, was a career killer. They needed a a great sophomore effort to put them over the top, and God bless 'em - they choked. Rolling Stone gave it 2 1/2 stars at the time, and even Donnie Vie admitted that they were trying way too hard on this one. For fans only."
A BAND that you need to hear

"I hope my title can alert some people to this cd. I fully agree with what has been written before me and would only like to add. There are many reasons why Enuff Znuff are unique band and have released some great music and I'm going to try to cover those indivudual components. The songwriting combines great pop elements which are hardened up for fans like me who appreciate great melodies with hard or heavier guitar work. Donnie is a fantastic singer and extremely underappreciated. He is one of the few singers who can really belt out their voice without sounding like they're screaming and he also always sounds sincere and heartfelt in his delivery. GET BACK TOGETHER YOU KNUCKLEHEADS. There is another key element to the band and that has to be Derek Frigo. Derek actually co-wrote one of the stand out tracks on this cd being Mothers Eyes. His guitar work gives Enuff Znuffs songs the guts that their fans love but he is also brilliant with his melodic and often technically sound guitar solos. As a guitar player myself, I truely believe that Dereks ability and his execution is up there with greats such as George Lynch and Eddie Van Halen etc. I don't want to end my review with a negative but there are some fillers here but I gave it 5 out of 5 because if you chop out the fillers there are still at least 10 tracks which is more than exceptional value. I wish I didn't live so far away from the states so could have seen these guys when THIS line-up was together. RIP Derek."
