Lifesavers | Kiss of Life

The Lifesavors change name to just Lifesavers, as well as change a few members. Michael Knott takes over as the frontman at this point, too. Probably one of the most mellow Lifesavers albums out there. Contemporary music with a slight alternative/new wave punk edge.

Review: “Despite some highly respectable cuts, Knott would like to act like Lifesavors’ 1986 KISS OF LIFE never existed. If he has any say, this will never see a reissue.” (source unknown)

Other information:
Re-released in 1995 on Alarma Records with a slightly different cover.

    I hate to say it… but I LOVE this one. I told Michael that at Cornerstone once, he kinda brushed me off after that. πŸ™‚

    I don’t know why Michael is uncomfortable with this album. I love it. It’s a little dated, but at the time it came out it was better than a lot of mainstream secular alternative rock. Good lyrics and great hooks! The choruses get in your head and stay there.
