THE DONNAS

Greatest Hits Volume 16

 

 

Not a Greatest hits in the literal sense, this is more a motley collection of rare tunes, some live takes from the DESERT MOON II DVD, a couple of re-recorded oldies, and alternate takes. Rocking is what The Donnas do best, but this release highlights their biggest cross to bear: their older, simpler, rawer songs outweigh their newer slicker, smoother sound by virtue of the sheer rocking enthusiasm that leaps out of the speakers and assaults the listener. If they can get back to their raw roots without sacrificing their new-found abilities and production values, they could regain their crown as Queens Of Noise.
