Rufio -MCMLXXXV (1985) CD

There are already many reviews for this album, but i'd like to bring my view so here's mine.

I don't know how people can find the sound not good. The production did its job, the sound is great, perhaps too clean for punk-rock according to me. Rufio kept their sound and their style on this album, while developping their emo and metal influences a bit more, for example on the song "Control" which sounds a bit like Thrice and on "Pirate" which sounds a lot like Iron Maiden. The singer's voice has also evolved through the tours, i find it now more original.

Everyone is ok to say that those guys are very talented musicians and got crazy riffs. My favorite song is "Goodbye", the melody is so great, it warms my heart. But even if "1985" is a good album (with a superb artwork ; there's even a picture of a french train haha), i prefer the incredible "Perhaps, I Suppose...", it's longer, faster in general, and the melodies are better, i love all the songs except one i like less ("Stop Whining"). When listening to "1985", the attention goes a bit down in the middle. And i would prefer they recorded other songs than "Why Wait ?" and "Set It Off", since the 1st versions were already great.

But this album is much worth buying ! And if you haven't still seen Rufio on stage, don't hesitate, i went to Brighton and London in UK last September and it's one of the best bands i've ever seen (and i've seen a lot), they spring everywhere, the drummer is awesome, and they're among the nicest guys too.

If you like rufio, check out the French band Straightaway..i've seen them many times live and at rehearsal, and trust me, they kick ass !
