ANGELIC UPSTARTS: Still from the Heart: CD

With album number five, the Upstarts took a stab at a more “commercial” sound and effectively zapped virtually of the all-important punk energy from their sound, ending up with an album that pretty much blows. Fortunately, Captain Oi has had the foresight to include a slew of demo versions of some of the album’s songs, which are damn good and show how good an album this could’ve been had they just stuck to their guns.
