Album Notes
Mood Swing -- The Nails' 1984 album is finally on CD! Remastered from the original RCA tapes with bonus tracks! Contains the hit version of 88 Lines about 44 Women plus Home of the Brave, both of which continue to garner airplay over 20 years after its vinyl release. All Music Review states: "While this album will always be remembered for its one novelty hit, Mood Swing is a remarkably consistent and confident debut. The band sounds a bit like a cross between the Damned and Jim Carroll in their best moments, with all that implies -- powerful musicianship, dark and occasionally shocking lyrics ... The Nails were an uncommonly sophisticated rock band with a rollicking brass backup and an extraordinarily talented singer and lyricist, and on this album they got everything right."

to write a review


Are you kidding
this is one of the best 80s groups of all times...yet sadly underestimated

Jimmy Tatham

Great album haven't had it in years, I'm glad I found it here, Fast delivery too, especially when it was being sent to NZ


One of my all time favorite albums
Glad to see this has finally been released on CD. This is a real powerful album and the songs are still relevant 24 years later. Take a listen / then buy the CD -- you will not be disappointed!!!


it's about time
This is not only one of the best CDs of the 80s, in my opinion, but one of my top twenty records of all time. Congratulations to the band for having the perseverance to make it available on CD! Now, where's my copy of their "Hotel for Women" EP...

Michael Nyman

Nothing lost as the years passed...
Wow, I used to have this on cassette tape in \'88, loaned it to some dufus I used to work with and never got it back, when I went to get a copy found out it was out of print, so glad I checked back on it\'s status again 20 years later. This album is timeless, or maybe The Nails were way ahead of their time, I\'m still rocking out to it in my car (I drive a lot!!) I still have Dangerous Dreams on cassette, I\'ll have to play that and see how that one holds up, although I remember that it was not quite what Mood Swing is, and I still dig it!!

Rolf Johnsen

Finaly after all this years:) Have been looking for the album all over, without no luck. My Mood swing LP was destroyed 20 years ago, sins then i have been looking. Now i m happy happy happy:)

Leslie Regier

I love this album...creative, fun, amusing lyrics, just plain sounds great musically. After patiently keeping an eye out for its CD release for ages, I was just about to record my original vinyl album to CD when I serendipitously discovered that it had been rereleased at last. Now I have a good CD for car use. Yesssss!
