The honest answer is yes (because pretty much all of it was written at around the same time as the debut), and no (none of the songs on this are as catchy as anything on the debut, which is why they were not on that album I guess).

Overall it IS classic PBF, and a great release, but the fact they had to go back and re-record these old songs kinda shows you that Kristy could only ever write one great song (his writing credits on this one are a joke, and another example of him claiming other peoples work as his own).

 

Regardless of my feelings about Kristy and his business practices, I do love this album. One of my faves this year no doubt.

Saw a couple videos on youtube.. His voice sounds like their debut so that's enough to make ita decent album. Atleast IMO.

Steve has always sounded the same. Even on the Shameless and Penny Lane albums, you know its him straight away.

The fact that Kristy has actually started playing proper guitar again instead of copying the Ramones, is a bonus.

Steve definitely sounds the same, to the point where I actually wondered a few times if there were original vocal tracks taken from around the time of the debut.

Well the videos I saw were not from the 80's. They look old(er).  But as long as Steve has his voice I am in.

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all. 
    • Acoustic rocker( I wouldn't say "Country"). I like it  
    • On first listen through, this album is "meh".  Lots of songs that sound very similar and nothing that sounds particularly inspired.  
    • just heard another snippet and it sounds identical again. I'll give this a go for sure but this dudes songs all sound the same. it's a bit weird
