The four hundred and fifty-fourth album: #454 Adam and the Ants - Kings of the Wild Frontier

Adam and the Ants bring new wave with a punk attitude to the music - loose, rocky and fairly open, the repetitive guitars overlaid on more interesting tunes. It's a bit distracting, but it works most of the time - I just don't think it makes for the most compelling album, with even something like Jolly Roger feeling a bit too loose to work in their style.
