CD REVIEW Donnie Vie

Band : Donnie Vie
Album title : Wrapped Around My Middle Finger
Label : Cargo Records
Distributor : Connecting Music
Release Date : 05/03/2012
Release : CD

I was thrilled when I put on this album.  Donnie Vie,voice and main songwriter of Enuff Z’nuff, a band I have always liked, and whose album ‘Animals With Human Intelligence’, an album that was released in 1993 still regularly finds it’s way to my player.  Now Donnie  has put together a new band, The Donnie VieBand, and has recorded this new album.

I would say that this album takes of where Enuff Z’nuff landed.  The songs could just as well have been on an album of the aforementioned band, although that is not completely true.  Just listen to the song ‘Lisa’, and you’ll know what I mean.

If, like me, you were a big fan of Enuff Z’nuff you shouldn’t hesitate for more than two seconds.  Go and get this album.  Donnie’s voice is still good as ever, bluesy, yet rocky when it needs to, touchy in the more balladesque parts/songs.  I could go on an on, but I’ll finish by saying that this is already one of the best albums of this year so far.
