3262Back To Basics.....Hmmm
- Feb 15, 2004Ok. I heard the new cd last night for about 3 or 4 times. I have to
say that the sound is fine but it's also a sound that might not be
for everyone. If Speed of Sound, Plugged and Absolutely are your
faves then this might not satisfy you. This cd has power but not
necessarily the speed. This is exactly what the band was trying to
set out to accomplish on this cd, 80s feel. If you like bands like
Priest, Motorhead and other powerful bands then this will be a great
cd for you. I love it. "Bottom Feeder" is probably my fave though.
The other thing that I noticed with this cd is that there isn't any
one or two songs that stand out as better than the rest like SGS.
With SGS you had "Still Going Strong" and "Race Against Time" really
standing ahead of the rest but you won't find that on this cd. You
have to also remember that with Anvil being around for so long now
they also have fans that like different points in the bands career.
Some of the Anvil fans I'm sure hate Metal on Metal while others
might not like the "speed" era too much. What I love about this cd is
that the band did what they wanted to do and did it properly. "Back
to Basics" is the perfect title for it. Good Job Boys. Nice photos
