NEWLY REMASTERED- 14 BONUS TRACKS - FULL BOOKLET- 2CD SET Although 'Insanity Beach' features the trusted Sleeze Beez formula, the Beez seem to have taken a slightly more experimental road on this album, accounting for a bigger amount of listening pleasure.

It's not like the Beez suddenly turn into a Prog band, it's still Rock 'n' Roll, just slightly more interestingly structured.

The tension build-up in 'Save Myself' makes the song a favorite Beez-song, the spoken parts in 'Gun Culture' took some getting used to but make it a truly powerful and unique song and the slower, creeping 'D.U.I.

(Intoxicated)' and 'Hate Rock And Roll' (Kashmir?) are welcome variations in the tempo department.

Rest assured though, closing track 'Scream' revives the party atmosphere of most of 'Screwed, Blued And Tattooed'.

Most Rock 'n' Roll bands can rock. However, it takes a brilliant singer to lift the actual music to a higher level.

Andrew Elt is such a singer. The guys backing him are more than adequate though. Jan Koster is a true power hitter and Ed Jongsma delivers bass lines just slightly more interesting than the standard Rock bassist.

Who plays which solo? Chriz van Jaarsveld and Don van Spall are both awesome guitarists.

Check out those in 'The Long Goodbye' and 'Sacrifice' for great examples. But what's most important are the actual songs..
