    I love X's music and was a little surprised by how vibrant this record sounds. As a friend of mine said regarding old punk bands, "it's okay to be old, but not okay to sound old", ha! Coincidentally, she said that while we were watching another punk band from the 70's also called X from Australia. Props on Hound Dog Taylor avatar.

    ...or the other way round? Both bands started around the same time!

    It sounds a little different, but what I can't stand is that some old bands use gross new slick production. This one sounds good, not like that.

    I like a lot of early X. I got their "Live in Latin America" kickstarter CD recently. Of course that's all old material and it's sort of like jumping into ice cold water compared to most of what I listen to.

    This video reminds me of some 80s era Moody Blues MTV videos where they had a group of young actors pretending to be them 15 years earlier.
