Snuff's second album proper, Reach, disappointed some people (this author included) both for not being as hard-hitting as the Snuff Said But L.P. and for being a lot less fun then the Flibbiddydibbiddydob E.P. The first half of the album, which, honestly, I thought looked too cheap to be a 'real album' back in 1992, does have some kick-ass songs ("I Know What You Want", "Spend, Spend, Spend") but it starts getting a bit blurry on side two. Of course, in all fairness side two kick's off with a Hammond organ-fulled song that's almost all hook ("That's Fine" are the sole words in the song). In what would become a major component Snuff's catalog, the 7" of "That's Fine" contains a wonderful cover of a Japanese song (I'm told it's sort of like a Japanese equivalent of 'Itsy Bitsy Spider') called "Den Den". It's a shame to have kept the song relegated to B-side status, as it sure would've livened up Reach.
A That's Fine
B1 Den Den
B2 What Kind Of Love? (live, 1990)
So is Reach a weaker Snuff album or did I just miss something? Let us know in the COMMENTS section (which is where you'll find the link for the That's Fine 7".)
