    Los Angeles

    by Jay Debauchery

    Rhino has begun to reissue the first three X albums with some remastering to compliment them. But, they also include some demo’s, alternate takes, and unreleased stuff. Pretty typical package. So, why should you buy this? BECAUSE IT’S FUCKING X! X is easily one of the best punk bands of all time and there is no doubt that the original version of Los Angeles sounded a little rough (even though it was leaps and bounds ahead of most punk records of that time). The remastering brings out Exene and John Doe’s vocals with a much fuller and warmer sound. They’ve done a really good job of balancing out their harmonies perfectly. The goodies at the end of the album are nothing to scream about. Basically songs that appear on other albums but different versions. A little gratuitous but they have to give you incentive to buy the same album twice ya know.
