Listened to Shoot Out the Lights. I agree with Sekhem on the production here being poor, the songs on this album have a very nice rhythm section and the whole thing is performed well, but the production really keeps it from having any sort of impact.
Yeah, listening to the album after reading all your posts it is becoming increasingly apparent to me that the production is not quite right. That just doesn't really diminish the album's impact for me. Linda's voice on "Walking On a Wire" and Richard's blistering guitar on the title track cut straight through any production nonsense.
Maybe as a fan of lo-fi and punk and old garage rock and even older folk and blues I'm kind of used to listening to music that sounds like it was recorded underwater, and I'm much less sensitive to production issues.
Turns out @Snuff is the man of the week! Different genre, different decade, have fun, blah blah blah.
Btw, to drum up interest in AotW it might be a good idea to @ mention some people who aren't regulars in this thread but are definitely into music and might be interested in getting involved (I mean, I basically found it by accident). The regulars over on the "Post music, rate the one above" thread in General might be a good place to start.
