Alarm at their best

griddiho

The live versions catch a little of the energy of the early Alarm, and the tracks from the EP have a vital simplicity. This is how I'll want to remember them. The tracks given full production are technically well done but for me they rob the life from the music in an attempt to make it main-stream friendly pop - whereas the intent was always rough-edged protest.

Yes, the originals!

These ARE the original versions. In 1981-83 The Alarm released: - single "Unsafe building" (songs 1 & 2 here) - single "The stand" (song 11) - EP "The Alarm" (five songs 11, 10, 8, 9 & 14) - single "Marching on" (songs 8, 9 & 10) - single "68 guns" (song 22 & 13) This great package combines these singles/EP with some demos they recorded in order to find a record company, some live renditions & the long version of "The Stand". So no "sacrilege" here. Come to think of it, they re-recorded some songs for their debut album "Declaration" (now also available on eMusic), so these would be the "sacrilegeous re-recordings" (just kidding :)).

These are all original versions, remastered just means they made it louder. Obviously demos and live versions where noted, but those are the original versions of 'The Stand' and 'Sixty Eight Guns'...this is not a 'remakes' album.

Great, but...

The Alarm meant the world to me back in the 80s, so perhaps this comment is colored by my personal attachement to these songs. But who would come up with the idea of, let's say, changing the words to a piece of literature in order to sound more contemporary? Remastered versions of music is just as sacrilegious as a colored version of a classic black and white movie. Thus, download The Alarm on emusic if you have to, but better yet, head down to your local used record store for the originals.
