Format: Audio CD
I feel silly reviewing this album when I've had it for the last 12 years. It does seem like yesterday I picked it up at Sam Goody's record store in 1999, not knowing I was going to be hearing a style of music I've never heard before at that point.

Of course, now this album is the stuff of legend. Still stands as their best record next to Frankenstein Girls. My review is of the packaging, bonus tracks, and DVD. I'll get the negatives out of the way. First, while I love the old school band photos (especially the classic "birthing" photo from the Bring The Pain cassette) and the art/color scheme, the cardboard packaging is way too, well "tight" (sorry, had to). The cd and DVD is jammed so tightly in the cardboard sleeve that they are scratched the second you get it out to play them. I always hated these type of cd cases that damage the product the second you remove it. Given that cds are a commodity these days, I don't see this packaging format changing anytime soon. Secondly, where is the studio version of Panty Shot? This is the one song that absolutely belongs here as a bonus track. Pretty disappointing, and would have like to have it instead of two more outtakes of JX-47 which really doesn't need more than one version. The 8-bit version of Tight is just that, nothing more. Interesting listen but ultimately not worth repeated listens. Finally, the so-called "remastering" of the album is a bit of a joke. The album is only 12 years old and was mostly recorded in mono anyway so it's kind of silly to think it would even need remastering. Case in point, I have the original album, and ripped this cd to mp3 and compared the whole thing track by track. Other than a slight (and I mean next to nothing) increase in the bass boom, the sound is identical to the 1999 version.

if you're a true fan, you HAVE to own this. aside from all the new content, the re-mastered versions of the songs sound SO much better than they used to; MSI went to great lengths to ensure their classics could be listened to with nice stereo systems. dont miss out!!

I love MSI and I think all real MSI fans will love this album if they haven't already heard it. I give it a 5/5 and I would definitely recommend it to any of my friends and anybody who is just getting into MSI or who haven't heard of this album by MSI. Can't stop listening to this eargasm magic.

If you are a fan of MSI and missed out on their first album which has gone up and up in price than Tighter offers not only a cost effective way of picking it up, but it comes packed with bonus tracks, unreleased music and a bonus DVD of content never offered before. Then why isn't this a 5 star set then you ask? The song "Panty Shot" which there IS a studio version of and was released on cassingle long before it was banned and caused all types of trouble for the band is not included in this set. I understand the song caused a ruckus, and I know that including it would have stirred up some of that - but honestly I don't care. There is no intelligent reason that every single other track from the era that's ever been released or I know of existing was included on the set with "Panty Shot" wasn't. No excuse. Except for the price... This sounds good, it has tons of material on it and even the bonus DVD is done well, especially considering this doesn't even list for half the price you would pay for an original pressing. The DVD has a collection of live performances all separated into songs (wish there was at least one full concert or something from back then included, would have been neat) and contains over an hour of unreleased video. The other thing they included I thought was really interesting was a commentary track for the album where MSI listens to the album and talks about their memories of recording the album and talk a little bit about the history of the tracks and the recording of the material. I've never seen this anywhere else and I really like the idea! While the set may not be perfectly put together and might have missed one song, which does drive me nuts, this re-issue was done with love and care and it shows.Read more ›

While not their best work available this is a solid CD by the band Mindless Self Indulgence. If you're a fan you'll probably buy this and you won't be disappointed.

mindless self indulgence is my fav band and I bought tight off of ebay for over $150 because it was out of print but I am happy that this one comes with bonus tracks now if they would only put out my favorite song "bed of rosses" but that is a song jimmy made by himself before mindless self indulgence and the left rights

What can I say about this group. They are CRAZY! They use such an infusion of reggae, rock, rap, hiphop and whatever they want and it all comes out really cool.
