"While changing musical styles can be a harrowing experience
for musical acts, Mad At The World made the transition from one type of
contemporary music to another with finesse. The self-titled
debut, and its follow up, Flowers In The Rain, featured keyboard-centered new wave (imagine a sanctified Depeche Mode). Later records such as Seasons Of Love (also available in the Value Disc series) and Boomerang
removed the keyboards and added all the components of loud, classic
rock and roll musically akin to The Cult and other steady, solid rock
bands. Always avoiding the metal label, and more creative than
most hard rock bands, MATW created their own niche.
Flowers In The Rain (1988) stands the test of time as a quality Christian new wave record, guaranteed to still attract new listeners. Boomerang
(1991) was the second installment in MATW's conversion from new wave,
and contained the controversial hit, "Isn't Sex A Wonderful Thing?," a
Biblical commentary on the abuses of sex. Both albums can now be
enjoyed in this package."
