Don

I have officially become an old man. I bought one of this band's earlier releases, "These Here Are Crazy Times" twice. Once on cassette tape( I told you I was old) and then again on the NEW technology(at that time) Compact Disc. The tracks included:
Onion Skin( my FAVORITE), The Best Thing, Get Out of the House, Talk About It?!, Dancing in the Storm, and 6 others. The 5 songs I listed were the standouts, IMO, but the other tunes didn't disappoint. This "New" release does disappoint.

The energy level on the original versions of the aforementioned songs was high!!! From the guitars, to the drums, to the horns. Yes, there were horns. Now, these songs have been turned into what amounts to Smooth Jazz. Not that there is anything wrong with Jazz that is smooth, but that style does not mesh with the original versions of these songs. The only thing that sounds the same is the voice of the lead singer. I would not recommend this album purchase.

better than nothing

Ran across an old old old copy of this tape from when i was a teenager but alas it wouldnt play so i purchased a couple of these songs on the new release that i remember from back in the day and while they are a far cry from the original verisons they still dredge up memories of those younger days, hopefully they will re-release a copy of "These Here are Crazy Times", til then this'll do...

Disappointing

The only reason I downloaded "Onion Skin" and "The Best Thing" was because my original CD of "These Here Are Crazy Times" was scratched over those songs.

I agree with others here. This album is disappointing. These softened, folksy versions of the orignal BCO songs are reminiscent of the "Strumming With the Devil" CD, which is a compilation of Van Halen hits as performed by bluegrass artists. The difference is, "Strummin'" is tongue-in-cheek fun that doesn't take itself too seriously (heck, David Lee Roth even sings on two of the tracks). Also, the original Van Halen tracks are still available on iTunes if you can't stand the bluegrass covers.

Dancing In the Storm, in contrast takes some of the best tracks from an undeservedly obscure band and converts them into bad MTV Unplugged covers. If the original versions, which exploded with life, passion, and fury, were available on iTunes, then this album would be a novelty. But because this is the only version we get, I feel a bit cheated.

What is sad is that these versions are boring, and if I played them for my kids they would wonder what was so special about this band. Oh, to give them the original arrangements so they could get up and dance along with me as I used to do in my younger days.

C'mon, BCO ... give us the originals!

Biography

Formed: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Originally a five-piece formed in Melbourne in 1985, Australian rock band Boom Crash Opera, like many before them, got their grounding from the pub rock circuit. Their striking debut blended the muscular rock of "Listen Like Thieves"-period INXS with an almost English melodic richness not dissimilar to Tears for Fears. Power vocalist Dale Ryder was backed by trademark chant style vocals from the other bandmembers, including group co-founders and writing partners guitarist/bassist Richard Pleasance...
