Album Review

The Big Don't Argue picks up where Roaring Days left off. Actually, it is more of the same. And, in fact, that is the main problem with this release. Even though they were working with a new producer and a new guitarist, the band did not seem to progress much from Roaring Days, and it almost seems that the responsibility of writing the entire album was a little too much for Mike Thomas. This is not to say that this album is not great, because it is in fact a wonderful album. It was just a little bit of a letdown after their first two. Again, the band reached into their roots of folk music and rock to produce their trademark sound, and they still tell great stories. Listen to the strain of constant touring in the brilliant "Knockbacks In Halifax," which is a great pub song with a catchy, sing-along chorus. There are plenty of standout tracks, but there are also weaker tracks that would have better served as B-sides, such as the closing track, "Manana, Manana," which seems to go on far too long. But these moments are few and far between. The band did go out on a limb somewhat with this album, notably with an incredibly rocking number documenting the true story of cannibalism ("A Tale They Won't Believe"). The topic may be disturbing, but just try keeping your foot still during this powerful song.

Customer Reviews

What a Great album!

Weddings Party's Anything are one of the most under rated Bands ever. This album has some songs that are as heart wrenching as "Lyin' Eyes" like "Darling Please" and as Rockin' and Complex as any Dylan song (think Hurricane) like "A Tale They Won't Believe". For $13, this album is worth everyone buying it and listening in. I just bought it.

Years Active: '80s, '90s

With their name "borrowed" from a Clash song ("Revolution Rock"), and influences such as Woody Guthrie, Tex Morton, and the Rolling Stones, one gets the idea that it is not easy to categorize the Australian band Weddings, Parties, Anything (W.P.A.). And it isn't. One part rock, one part punk/alternative, one part country, and one part whatever strikes their fancy. With experience including solo performances, and playing in Australian "bush bands," principal writer (and leader of the band), Michael...
