Great acoustic versions of some great Alarm songs

I've been an Alarm fan since first hearing/seeing The Stand late one night on MTV back in the '80's. I loved the energy and message of the band. This is the only Alarm album I had yet to purchase and am glad I did. I've got stuff that iTunes doesn't have but this is a great addition. I think it's geared to people already familiar with the songs and inclined to enjoy a different take by the original artist (at least one of the main ones). Mike Peters didn't write everything here, but retained the right to play and record them when the band went their separate ways. Good stuff - pretty much permanently in my car's CD changer.

Heart-felt and Awesome!!!!

The acoustic sound brings a warmth and character to these songs that I did not realize was possible. Mike does a terrific job vocally too - to be honest with you, I have been surprised that he has such good vocals as "we all" are getting up there just a bit in age. : ) But the vocals are truly great - as always! I purchased something simular to this on CD a few years ago at The Alarm 2000 concert and found it to be a great addition to my Alarm collection - it was later stolen, along with my car stereo and I am stoked to get it back in my collection! Thansk Mike! Thanks Alarm! And may the Lord keep on blessen as you keep on rock'n in the free world!!! I have to say that I do not write many of these things, so for me to tell you to buy it, is a big deal.

With idealistic spirit, a powerhouse live show, and bigger than big hair, the Alarm were part of an early-'80s wave of bands (the Call, Big Country, and the Waterboys among them) who dealt in soaring anthems inspired by the righteous idealism of punk. Clearly influenced by the impassioned political fervor of the Clash, the Alarm also worked in a mostly acoustic, folk-punk vein that provided a counterpoint to their hard-driving guitar rockers. Their stage look was unquestionably a product of the '80s,...
