Enuff Z'nuff

10

Review by Gary Hill

Enuff Z’nuff really knows how to make killer hard edged pop music with great retro leanings. On this, their tenth CD, they continue that tradition in fine form. The band have put together a collection of pieces that should really please both the long time listener and new fan.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2001 Year Book Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
There Goes My Heart
This one comes across as a bouncy pop cut in the vein of early Beatles.
Fly Away
Harder edged, this one has a great power pop rock and roll texture. It features a killer guitar solo.
The Beast
The intro to this cut is based in an awesome metal vein, but the verses are in a more power pop ballad style. This is a great track and includes some wonderful vocal work.
Your Heart’s No Good... ...But I Love Your Face
This crunchy but light hearted rocker features a distinctly Beatlesesque vocal arrangement. Ringing bells tie this cut into the next.
Wake Up
Starting in an evocative styled mellow ballad mode, the one builds on that style, but becomes killer harder rock on the chorus. It alternates between theses styles and is one of the best tracks on this disc. It features a very tasty guitar solo.
What Can I Do?
This is a fast paced rock and roll groove with some killer classic rock textures. “What can I do to win your love?”
Suicide
This one is very Beatlesesque, but in a more late era style, at times feeling more like a lest lushly arranged ELO.
All Right
This is a classic-rock styled pop cut with Beatlesish textures, particularly in the vocal arrangement.
Holiday
This is another catchy pop rock piece with a great retro texture.
Bang On
“Bang On” is a fast paced, rather pleasantly rough edged rock song.
The Jean Genie
Enuff’s cover of the David Bowie classic, this one is stripped down rock and roll and very solid. It features a killer rough edged guitar outro.
Everything Works If You Let It
A Cheap Trick cover, this one would be a great choice except for the fact that Znuff just did it on their last CD. This time Billy Corgan makes a guest appearance, lending his lead guitar skills to the mix. In Enuff’s defense, the cut is done here is a darker, harder edged style than on the previous album. Of course, much of that feeling comes from the intro alone. It features a very Beatles oriented ending section.
You'll find concert pics of this artist in the Music Street Journal members area.
