As a lover of punk and rock & roll music in general, one might say I'm a bit too generous when it comes to doling out compliments. I've seen these guys perform several times since they re-formed with Steve Conte on guitar around 2005; and although I was a bit young to have seen them in their original line-up glory days, I'd seen solo performances by Johansen, Sylvain and Thunders (the latter with Nolan on drums) from 1978 through the mid 80s...and certainly had ALL the vinyl from 1972 on... but this one is simply a "stinker!"
I gave it 1.5 stars for effort, as I can tell these guys are trying real hard. The reggae-beat version of Trash is pretty interesting, but sounds like something Johansen might have done around the time of Here Comes the Night (his 3rd solo effort for Blue Sky, right before his Buster Poindexter days). The rest of the tunes are simply trying too hard and falling short.
Probably not helping is Todd Rundgren's murky production work. Certainly NOT what one would expect of a recording produced anytime after 1990. Maybe it's my own hearing loss, but it sounds more likely to be Todd's; as bands like Toadies and Kings of Leon are putting out records that simply sound great to me, whereas this one is simply sounds flat.
Go see them live if you're a fan of the old stuff, but spare yourself this experience if at all possible.
