Enuff Z'Nuff came to the scene, dressed up like drag queens, typical late 80s glam outfit, but make no mistake, behind those masked appearances and a bit flurry name, the band possessed a unique style, a highly talented musicianship which cleverly cross-referencing their genre with 60s surf-rock and 90s melodic hard rock, and the result is what you'll hear in their magnificent debut. Donnie Vie's vocal is unusual, gritty, and mainly crawled in the lower territory, which also contradictive with many late 80s singer that love to fly high to reach those notes.
Two most famous Z'nuff songs, "New Thing" and "Fly High Michelle", are featured on this album, but if you think knowing and listening only to that two songs are enuff, then you're wrong. "Hot Little Summer Girl" and "Little Indian Angel", for instance, try cranking the volume up and wait for its catchy chorus to come rolling in, I won't believe if you don't like these songs. "For Now" is a smooth melodic rock track, a radio hit potential, and one of their best songs ever made. "Kiss The Clown" has the naughty snakedance riffs, transforming the classic 60s rock to a harder edge. "I Could Never Be Without You", a touching ballad with Vie's lazy vocal and irregular melodies, this track is strange and beautiful at the same time.
I found the next release, "Strength", to be slightly more entertaining and better overall, and probably the third record is their peak, but I really must admit these first three records are the pinnacle of their career. Even though EZN never reached the ultimate commercial success, they have lots of loyal fans that kept them going for 25 years. If you like a great blend of 60s rock and 80s glam, then this record is definitely for you.
