DONNIE VIE Extra Strength Livewire/Cargo (2007)

Donnie Vie

Enuff Z Nuff vocalist Donnie Vie revisits Enuff Z Nuff's classic 'Strength' album and this time he is backed by either acoustic guitar and minimal percussion or simply just a piano. For the majority of the time it really adds something to the songs with 'Heaven Or Hell' and 'In Crowd' really getting a new lease of life in this stripped down form.

He does a great cover of the Beatles 'In My Life', a band of course who greatly influenced the Enuff Z Nuff sound. But please what possessed him to ruin 'Baby Loves You' the only electric song on here complete with Donnie Vie spitting towards the end charming.

One for fans definitely just to hear these songs in a different style but not likely to win him any new fans, they are better off starting with the original album. Hopefully Enuff Z Nuff will record another studio album soon although when they tour Johnny Monaco take's Donnie Vie's place so maybe that's why Donnie Vie is doing albums like this?
