Album Review

The terms "reissue" and "re-release" are often used interchangeably, but in fact, the two have slightly different connotations. When the word reissue is used, the listener is probably getting something historic — an older recording that may or may not have gone out of print and is getting a new lease on life (perhaps with new art work, digital remastering, new liner notes, and/or a bunch of bonus tracks). But a re-release is a more recent recording — not something that was recorded 20 or 30 years ago — and the adjustments may be minor. Just a Saturday Night is clearly a re-release, not a reissue. In February 2010, the Villains' debut album was released as a self-titled, 28-minute CD. Then, in late June 2010, the album was re-released by Rock Ridge Music as Just Another Saturday Night. The front cover had the same illustration, and all eight of the songs that appeared on the February 2010 version also appear on this re-release. But one track was added: a pleasing cover of Pure Prairie League's "Amie." So the main things that separate Just Another Saturday Night from the February 2010 version are a new title and the inclusion of "Amie," which is an appropriate song for the Villains to perform given all their '70s soft rock influences (the Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, and the Eagles, among others). It stands to reason that a laid-back, country-influenced adult alternative/roots rock band that draws comparisons to groups like the Goo Goo Dolls, Counting Crows, and the Gin Blossoms, and has a lot of '70s influences would be into Pure Prairie League. That said, someone who already owns the original 28-minute February 2010 release doesn't necessarily need to run out and buy this 32-minute CD just to hear "Amie." But for those who don't already own the February 2010 release, that addition is nothing to complain about. Derivative but consistently enjoyable, Just Another Saturday Night leaves the listener with a favorable impression of the Villains.

Biography

Formed: Atlanta, GA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '10s

Bringing back the traditional rock sound of acts like Tom Petty, the Band, and Pure Prairie League, Atlanta-based band the Villains got their chops as studio musicians. Members Magno, Dan Call, Sean McNally, and Michael Wilkes knew one another from supporting mainstream and indie acts on the road and in the studio, but they always desired a more creative outlet. Adding Jimmy James Schmitt to the lineup gave the Villains a dynamic frontman along with an additional vocalist and songwriter, and after...
