Enuff Z'Nuff: Finer Than Sin

Melodic Power Pop Rock
4.0/5.0

The resilient rock band Enuff Z'Nuff, founded by vocalist and bassist Chip Z'nuff in 1984, continues their musical career with their seventeenth studio album, Finer Than Sin. This comes on the heels of their Beatles tribute album, Hardrock Nite, and Z'nuff's latest solo outing, Perfectly Imperfect. Both albums swayed little from the classic Enuff Z'Nuff style.

That is to say, Finer Than Sin is another palatable blend of Sixties/Seventies glam rock, pop rock, and psychedelic rock wrapped in English rock of the same era. The influences of The Beatles, Mott The Hoople, et al, are self-evident. The major emphasis of most every EZN song is power pop punch where rhythm, groove, ambitious beat, and vocal harmony make a dreamy concoction like musical syrup for the ears. Essentially, the EZN genre twist is a happy redundancy that the will never deviate from.



Which keeps their fans faithful and rabid for each new. With Finer Than Sin, they will not be disappointed. Songs with that power pop punch are self-evident: Catastrophe, Trampoline, God Save The Queen, and Lost And Out Of Control. The latter I liked simply because it was faster and heavier than the others. God Save The Queen had a real cereal box record (remember those) pop style with its bounce and catchy refrain. The ripping solo was nice, too. More subdued songs arrive with Intoxicated and Hurricane, both quite slow and plodding; the latter is over six minutes long. Perhaps Enuff Z'Nuff is actually throwing us a different musical curve ball. Alternatively, I quickly skipped through it.

Most things considered, the conclusion is elementary: Enuff Z'Nuff's Finer Than Sin is another platter of their melodic power pop rock combining rock genres for their unique musical style. If you're a fan, you love it. Recommended.
