Enuff Z' Nuff
Released: 2000, Spitfire Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Like I have said before “Enuff Z’Nuff have got to be one of the most underrated bands ever”. This statement holds true for this album which was released back in 2000. It has 10 original compositions and 2 cover songs.
The originals are typical EZN songs. They found a formula that works for them and they stuck with it. The disc opens with the track “There Goes My Heart” which is a mid-tempo rocker that is great from start to finish. Donnie vocals are really great here as well as on the rest of the disc. There are little Beatle-esque guitar bits throughout the song from mid 60’s era Beatles. The disc doesn’t die after the opening track, it just gets better with great tunes like “Fly Away”, “What Can I Do” and “Suicide”.
Even the 2 cover songs are fairly decent. The first is a cover of the Bowie song “The Jean Genie” which they stick pretty close to the original but make a few subtle changes to give it a bit of Enuff flavour. They basically do the same with the Cheap Trick tune “Everything Works If You Let It” except they keep this one allot closer to the original and don’t make any changes.
10 great originals and 2 decent covers make this one great cd. Top it off with the CD ROM video for “There Goes My Heart” and you definitely get you dollars worth here.
