I Want More
Released: 2010, FNA
For the next few months of the summer of 2010 I’m going to be bring you a series of six (or more) reviews of a great CD reissue campaign by a new, young label FNA Records. My rating reflects the score of the sites guidelines and the appeal to modern fans of heavier genres but if you are a fan of the band and the genre, I would rate this a full-point higher and give it a strong recommendation. Check out the other reviews in the series.
FNA have re-issued the third in a series of three albums by Dirty Looks. Originally out in 1987 this was ultimately the album that got them noticed to a larger audience and the major label deal with Atlantic. In fact six of the ten cuts made it onto COOL FROM THE WIRE, so there is quite a bit of overlap. Considering the lyrical content of the lead-off track ‘Fuck you…I Want More’ it is not surprising that that song didn’t make the cut for the major label! The treat on this one is for fans to hear the subtle differences in production and delivery between the now familiar songs. The other major plus are the two unreleased tracks in the form of ‘Smell The Gasoline’ and ‘Narcissist’.
As always with the FNA stuff the quality is high, good booklet, photos, lyrics and quite a striking cover. If you are new to the band this might be the reissue to start with, it has many songs that later became the ‘classics’ of the bands catalogue and the band have really started to solidify their signature style, on this, their third album. Boozy ballads, rumbling rockers, all topped off by Henriks unique and awesome delivery this band should have been bigger.
