Ah, memories!

I first heard The Alarm (or at least first paid attention to them) at the 1987 Greenbelt Music Festval. For whatever reason, I didn't go out and buy any of their albums immediately but when this was released a couple of years later, I purchased it (on cassette... remember them?!) and placed it in my Walkman where it remained for several months. Personal favorite tracks are Change, Sold Me Down the River, Love Don't Come Easy, Where a Town Once Stood, and A New South Wales... but the whole album is, at least in my opinion, a classic.

The last truly great Alarm album

It is hard to improve on a classic

My familiarity with The Alarm started with the original version of "Change" and I tried to work backwards from there. Nothing else they have done is this mature or features such monster guitar. This is one of my all-time favorite albums, based on the fantastic guitar alone! Mike Peters has never sounded better. Their usual themes of blue-collar troubles & tradition v. industry evolved alongside a specific concern for Wales' loss of national identity. This album is like a love song for their country and a lament for the language & traditions that are disappearing. The remastered version features 3 additional tracks (Change I, Corridors of Power, Breaking Point), 2 extended versions (No Frontiers, Where a Town...), an edited version of The Rock and the "vocal up mix" of New South Wales. If you already have the original release, at least download Change I. I don't understand why it was withheld, since it is a valuable addition to the albums concept.

Alarm Change

This is the Alarm growing up - you know 68 guns 'n' all that, but here is a complete utter clasic of a rock album. every song is great - there is utter committment in every beat - there is rock, blues, welsh choir, folk, ...I listened once and hated it, then 6 months later, I listened again and it was propelled into my top 10 albums of all time. Hey - I like Queen, Pink Floyd, Levellers, Sex Pistols - this equals the lot for dedication and sits between in music ... just buy the thing!!!
