The songs are a little more sophisitcated than the Voidoids' first album, but they definitely give your senses a lot to chew on. Perfect compliment to "Blank Generation."

This is a terrific album with some of Hell's best writing, and the band is still hot. A few too many new wave mannerisms but still funky and great. I love Time, his best song, and Downtown at Dawn, Destiny Street (with a hilarious set up where he meets himself in a dream), the classic lead-off track, You Gotta Move, and so on.

It's a little know fact that this cd (the version on Razor and Tie only) is mastered by Steve Hoffman of DCC fame. His cds for that label go for upwards of $2-300 in some cases, but unfortunately for the likes of Richard Hell browsers, its mostly stuff like Wings and Jethro Tull. Well here is an opportunity to hear a punk classic mastered as well as it likely ever will be in digital. So seek it out!

I've got the 1991 version of this album, which I bought new the other week at a price which isn't as huge as some sellers are asking for (the re-mastered version of 1997, I believe, is selling for over $80. I paid around half that). The sound quality was excellent, although I don't know how it compares to the remaster. The album runs to 35:43 minutes length. Some influences I spotted on it were from acts like The Kinks (and British Invasion era) and Bob Dylan. Maybe songs like "Ignore that door", "Destiny Street" and, to a lesser extent, "Lowest common dominator" have some sort of commercial appeal...niche ones. *N.B. I've just noticed that Wikipedia mentions a new version of this album "Destiny Street Repaired" where Richard Hell has redone some musical elements of the album - including vocals. Unsure of how this re-do is regarded. Might be worth checking out though.

The best songs...on second listen ">[.]":

Going going gone - a slower song. Dual guitars...electric lead guitar and a steel string acoustic guitar, I believe. Bass. Has a sort of country/blues vibe to it, with a touch of Nick Cave. This is the song that brings Bob Dylan to mind. Not bad.

Time - mid-tempo, melodic vocals but still incorporating Hell's mildly punk vocal style. Has an American twang to this. Vocal sounds are fruity at times (not for the first time on this album). Dual guitars, which are pretty at times. Both play the same solo (!?). Poetic lyrics. Bass.

Ignore that door - thought that this might have been a cover, but Wikipedia attributes it to the band. Has a heavy metal style guitar riff at the start, punk vocals and eerie backing vocals, which are catchy at times. Thumping drums.

the man who once sang Love Comes in Spurts takes on Dylan, beat poetry, and kids with replaceable heads. Unmistakably funky bass, a kickass backing band (voidoids), and his trademark howl make this quite a worthy followup album to blank generation. Let it destroy you...

This isn't a particularily great album- Blank Generation is definately the place to start if you want to get into Richard Hell. But if you listen to Blank Generation, you'll either hate it or fall in love with it, and if you love Blank Generation, your going to buy this album anyway. There is no middle ground when it comes to Richard Hell.

Richard Hell was (from what I have gathered) in the depths of his heroin addiction while recording this album, and just didn't really care about it. Except for a few highlights, like "I can only give you everything" or "Destiny Street" it is a weak album for only true fans to enjoy. But Richard Hell on a bad day whips most crappy "punk" brats until they cry.

All hail Rock 'n' Roll.
