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.' The remastered re-issued album (1985) includes a bonus CD featuring associated B-sides, bonus tracks, non LP singles and live tracks. Capitol. 2005.
