The Rock Version of Heart Attack knocks. I don't know why now (maybe Still Alive spurred it) but I decided to revisit Dancing With the Devil and Confident recently and both are a lot stronger than I gave them credit for.
I remember feeling very indifferent to the former, and hating the latter. I have been sleeping on Old Ways and Yes, and Father is quite affecting? Cool for the Summer and Mr. Hughes remain the massive bops I always knew they were and I recall enjoying Lionheart at the time. Miss Livvi Franc snapped on Old Ways, per usual.
Dancing... is very long but there are some real gems scattered throughout. Melon Cake, Lonely People, My Girlfriends are My Boyfriends, The Kind Of Lover I Am, and Met Him Last Night are lowkey anthems. It has a few too many ballads (Anyone in particular is brutal to get through), but I was bopping most the time!
Demi, Tell Me You Love Me, and Holy Fvck are still where it's at but I also have a special place for Unbroken in my heart. Thinking this all over made me realize maybe their discography is a lot stronger than I gave it credit for. I guess I write it off because usually I'm just annoyed by the non-musical shenanigans.
