Editorial Reviews

The first album with guitarist and singer-songwriter Joey Molland, No Dice (1970) is a watershed collection of power pop that bridges the band's commercial instincts with the classic, no-frills rock that became their trademark. Includes the Top 10 single, 'No Matter What', and the original version of the Ivor Novello and Grammy Award winning ‘Without You’, made famous by Harry Nilsson, and later Mariah Carey.

This Remastered CD includes five Bonus Tracks, all previously unreleased rare recordings; the last five of which were all produced by Mal Evans:
• ‘I Can’t Take It’ / extended version / produced by Geoff Emerick
• ‘Without You’ / mono studio demo
• ‘Get Down’ / mono studio demo
• ‘Photograph’ (aka ‘Friends Are Hard To Find’) / alternative version
• ‘Believe Me’ / alternative version
• ‘No Matter What’ / mono demo version

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Badfinger February 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
While most critics cite STRAIGHT UP as Badfinger's best album, this is the album I return to time and time again. Though technically their second album, it's the first to feature the classic lineup of Pete Ham, Tom Evans, Mike Gibbins and new guitarist Joey Molland. Peaking at No. 28 in the US (none of their albums charted in the UK!), it was their highest charting album.
"I Can't Take It" - The album kicks off with a straight-ahead Pete Ham rocker.
"I Don't Mind" - A lovely Evans-Molland ballad, glorious harmonies.
"Love Me Do" - A great rock 'n' roll song, but it didn't do anything to stop the Beatles comparisons when Molland titles his song with the same title as the Fab Four's first single!
"Midnight Caller" - A lovely Pete Ham ballad.
"No Matter What" - Another Pete Ham song, and the only single released from the album. (Peaked at No. 8.)
"Without You" - Co-written by Ham and Evans. Could have been a huge single, and it was...for Harry Nilsson, who also won a Grammy for it.
"Blodwyn" - This is one of my favorite songs, although I have no idea why a spoon would be "a token of my love." Ham's guitar work gives this song a distinctive country feel.
"Better Days" - Another Evans/Molland collaboration.
"It Had To Be" - Drummer Mike Gibbins is the underappreciated songwriter of the band. This is a lovely tune.
"Watford John" - This little rocker is credited to the entire band.
"Believe Me" - A wonderful Evans-penned ballad.
"We're For the Dark" - A classic Pete Ham song which closed the original album on a somber note with its acoustic guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roll the dice with Badfinger! December 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Less than 6 months after Badfinger's debut "Magic Christian Music" was released, the public is treated to the first real(with the new lineup) Badfinger album--"No Dice." The change is instantly noticeable. Gone is the silly dated Brit-pop that was the Iveys, replaced by the harder edged power pop that is Badfinger. "I Can't Take It" is the nonsensical raver that starts the disc off in fine fashion with Pete Ham shouting it out. The boys would use this song in their live act for years. "I Don't Mind" comes floating into the speakers next. Tom and newcomer Joey Molland do a good job vocally. It's a good song, handled with great feeling by the singers. "Love Me Do" is another song in the rocking mode. Also used in their stage show for the next few years, one can see why--lots of energy, good guitars. "Midnight Caller" is a nice mournful ballad with the drums mixed surprisingly high. The backing vocals shine while Pete Ham delivers a sterling lead vocal. Ham shows why many people referred to him as the best songwriter in the band as he shifts gears next and brings us the classic "No Matter What." All you have to do is hear the opening chord to know that it's Badfinger. Joey Molland plays a very fitting lead guitar. "Without You" is next and it's the one that got away. Badfingers version really sounds like a demo compared to the version that Harry Nilsson made and created into the monster that now stands as the definitive one. "Bloodwyn" is up next and it shows the boys can handle different types of music. Here the boys work the country angle with Pete again doing a tremendous vocal job. His slightly nasal readings give his songs an edge to them. Also, his lead guitar in this song is nothing short of perfection. Joey's "Better Days" is up next. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Power Pop Classic February 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Additional comments on the 2010 reissue.

It was really positive news that Apple decided to reissue their four Badfinger albums and give them a remastering. The first CD release of "No Dice" dates back to 1992, and although the sound on the old release wasn't bad, this is a clear improvement.

The number of bonus tracks is the same, but it must be noted tht they are all different. Three of the original five bonus tracks have now been added to the re-mastered version of Badfinger's next album "Straight Up", which makes good sense since they all originally were recorded for the follow-up album to "No Dice". One song, the band composition "Get Down" is now only available in download, which is really a shame. Moreover the download version is different from the 1992 version. The song from the 1992 release "Friends are Hard to Find" is now called "Photograph" - it the same song, but this new version is more than a minute longer.

The "new" bonus-tracks are alternate versions of songs from the album. Three of them are early studio-demos produced by Mal Evans. They all sound nice and are really nice additions, but none them surpasses the original versions. You get the feeling that Joey Molland is still not comfortable in the group. His solo on "Without You" seems somewhat uncertain and hesitant. Pete Ham's rocker "I Can't Take it" is also found in an extended version, where Tom Evans and Pete vocally blow themselves out.

There are fine and informative liner notes written by Andy Davis. A highly recommended release.

No Dice was Badfinger's first masterpiece ( and my first Badfinger album!). The inspiration from The Beatles can be heard on most of these songs, but this album shows that they're much more than just a Beatles rip off.

Was Badfinger "Nearly" As Good as the Beatles?
First of all, I want say how much I like this band. And I would think that anyone who digs The Beatles are going to like Badfinger as well because yes they indeed do sound like them and have a Beatles connection. However I consider it a stretch to suggest that would be in such elete company as... Read More
