CD Reviews

Maybe not worth the bucks, but a great CD
MT | ATLANTA | 01/02/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"NMA is back after 5 years with a CD that mirrors some of the old sound, while attempting to update it. After the familiar driving beat sounds of Wonderful Way To Go, the album takes an angry cyborg voice box and turns it into Whites of Their Eyes. Then comes Aimless Desire, one of the better songs musically and lyrically. Queen of My Heart sort of rambles, Gigabyte Wars is a horn-induced mistake. Killing is one of the best songs on the album, with a driving beat, and Justin Sullivans uncompromising lyrics. No Pain is not bad unless you've heard the acoustic only version, which is much better. Headlights brings up the familiar social issues NMA is known and loved for. Big Blue is a song that sounds like it was meant for the pop charts. Long Goodbye is a classic NMA song ("it feels so good to kill the thing that stood between the truth and I") with a nice harmonica and familiar driving beat. By the time the last song comes around, the listener has an uneven album that pales when compared to Thunder and Consolation, but is an improvement over "The Love of Hopeless Causes." Heres hoping NMA gets it all together and puts out the album that is in them. They certainly are one of the most important bands of the last 20 years."
A "must have"

"Every NMA release is creatively different from the others, sometimes drastically. What amazes me is how much I love EACH and EVERY release they have had! I personally cannot say that about any other band. I became instantly attached to Strange Brotherhood but I must say that it continues to grow on me even more. Don't pass this one up."
