3 stars CARDIACS did a three night run of live music October 17-19, 2003 playing previously unreleased songs along with some re-worked tracks from the time period of 1976-1983. From these three gigs they came up with two albums worth of songs, and both albums were released in 2005 called "Garage Concerts" and this is "Volume I". Both have 16 tracks on them and both clock in at just over an hour. There are two tracks I like with the first being "As Cold As Can Be In An English Sea". One of the longer ones too at 7 minutes. I'm not completely sold but it has a nice heavy sound to it with vocals. My favourite by far is where they actually slow the music down some like on "Let Alone My Plastic Doll". Even the vocals sound better and this is powerful. Screaming guitar 3 minutes in. What a song! Hey if your a big CARDIACS fan you probably already own this and you should. 3 stars in my world.
