CD Reviews

Edward Bosnar | 03/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although otherwise sophisticated and astoundingly knowledgeable on matters of music, most people I know in this corner of Europe have never even heard of X, to say nothing of being familiar with any of their albums or songs (many were also surprised by the fact that ex-Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek acted as producer for a punk band). So I was only too happy to shell out the shipping costs to order this CD (all my cassettes long since lost or permanently `borrowed') to enlighten friends, acquaintances and other music lovers. "Wild Gift" is probably the most standard X album, and the bonus tracks on this edition are a really good supplement to the original tracks. Although not as hardcore as other U.S. punk legends like the Ramones or Dead Kennedys, X's early works from the late `70s and early `80s still sound fresh and relevant."
My favorite X album

"This is my favorite X album. Every song is perfect, or very near close to being perfect! Great lyrics, great music! This has many of the best songs X ever wrote, including "The Once Over Twice", "White Girl", "In This House That I Call Home", ect. I notice some of the x-tra songs have already been included on the X anthology. X were the best American punk band, ever. A punk band that managed to pull off being romantic and poetic. But never cheesy."
Gotta get back to the basics

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Another ace 2001 reissue from long-lost El Lay lovers John Doe and Exene Cervenka, who catalog the travails of sex and dying in high society with wit, wisdom and a tragic desperation that mixes up the Doors, rockabilly riffs and locomotive-breath rhythmic propulsion to make their music eminently go bang, as well as squish, groan and scream. When it comes to raunchy romantic relationships, "The Once Over Twice," "White Girl," "Adult Books" and "When Our Love Passed Out On The Couch" are as seminal as they (er) come."
