ENUFF Z’NUFF – Greatest Hits [remastered] (2019)
Like a bad Taco Bell burrito, or a cockroach at the world’s end, ENUFF Z’NUFF are still lingering around more than 30 years after their inception. Love them or hate them, they have kept generating album after album since their debut release and accompanying hit single ‘Fly High Michelle’ back in 1989 — and in spite of the band’s inner turmoil over the years, they have soldiered on.
Cleopatra / Dead Line are now releasing this “Enuff Z’Nuff Greatest Hits”, including all the band’s best songs in a remastered sound.
In this set we find the milestones of Enuff Z’Nuff vast musical career such as “New Thing”, “Freak”, “Mother’s Eyes”, “There Goes My Heart” (one of my favorites) and of course “Fly High Michelle.
There’s many rock stars appearing as guest on some of these tunes, like Kim Bullard (Mike Tramp, Stan Bush, Fiona, Eddie Money), Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Spike (London Quireboys), and James Young (Styx).
Even Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick) contributes his guitars in “Freak”, not strange as the connection between both bands is evident. I always found Enuff Z’Nuff as a mixt between Cheap Trick power pop catchiness, Beatles timeless melodies, and Faster Pussyycat & Poison glam / hair metal.
“Enuff Z’Nuff Greatest Hits” is the perfect start to discover Enuff Z’Nuff’s music, and a great purchase for those looking for some of the band’s best songs into one single CD, all remastered.
