Go to the Dizzy Mizz Lizzy website  Dizzy Mizz Lizzy - The Best Of + Live In Aarhus '96 [EMI - 2002]

Dizzy Mizz Lizzy were, and still are, big in Denmark and Japan, but almost unknown outside these two countries. The Danish rock band split up in '98 and all three members went their seperate ways. Vocalist Tim Christensen is now a succesfull solo artist in his homecountry and is already busy recording his second album.

The story begins after DJ Alex Nyborg Madsen played their demo on Danish radio. It became a success. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy released their first album in March '94. The gigs were sold out and the band was the hottest thing in the clubs. The next couple of years the band conquered Japan and played every corner of Denmark to enthusiastic crowds. In '96 they started recording their second album "Rotator". With the release of it, they became the most important rockband in Denmark and grew out of the club scene and headlined at festivals all over the country.

Now EMI released a 2CD set to end the Dizzy Mizzy Lizzy story in a good way. On disc one there is a great selection of tracks from the two studio albums. Disc two features a complete live show, which was recorded in Aarhus, Denmark in '96. The first CD is interesting, and it's nice to have their best songs on one disc, but I personally prefer disc two. That's because I like the atmosphere from a good gig much better than a tracks compilation. The recording from the concert is perfect. You can clearly hear the band and audience enjoying the show. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy play a selection of tracks from both their studio cd's (Thorns In My Pride, Rotator, Barbedwired Baby's Dream, When The River Runs Drys, Waterline, etc), plus a medley from the songs "For God's Sake", "Mother Nature's Recipe" and "67-Seas In Your Eyes". All in all a great live CD.

I think the set is interesting for both the old-time Dizzy Mizz Lizzy fans and for people who are just getting to know this music. Old fans will enjoy the live disc a lot, and for newbies this is a nice introduction to the band. You just can't go wrong with this memorable set from the best Danish rock band.
