Don't get the negativity for Blue Murder mentioned on the last page. That debut album is freaking amazing IMO.
Wolf, I know you've heard a lot of "freaking amaxing" music in your day. But..
I bought Blue Murder when it came out and was extremely let down. I find most of it mid tempo boring rock, and the vocals, while well sung, are so boring to me.If it was filled with tasty rockers like Black hearted Woman, then it would've been a lot better, but I find it tries to be too many things and doesn't succeed at any of them.
I actually added it to my iPod a couple years ago after one of these very same conversations. Just ran through it quickly, but it just doesn't do anything for me.
