No Use for a Name: More Betterness!

Sound — 10
More Betterness is without doubt one of my favorite albums. What I like is the beginning of some songs: Persons are speaking a sometimes more, sometimes less intelligent phrase or dialogue and then suddenly the band comes in. The mix of clean and distortion songs prevents the cd from becoming boring and the structure of each song is well thought out.

The lyrics are - in a great part - melancholic and exhorting. The songs mostly deal with friendship, loneliness and love. Tony's voice gives the songs a special note and carries the emotions that are created by the music.

Overall Impression — 10
All in all I can say that this cd was worth every cent. I have listened to it for an innumerable number of hours and I still find something new in each song when I hear it again and again. My favorites are "Fairytale Of New York", "Why Doesn't Anybody Like Me" and "Life Size Mirror". If you want a good cd that lives up to its promise then you found it in "More Betterness".
