Mick Jones tightens the rather free-form structures of the previous B.A.D. albums on Tighten Up, Vol. '88. While he was aiming for a greater commercial success, the result was only partially successful; the best tracks didn't work as singles, and the singles didn't have the creative spark that marks the best of B.A.D.'s music. "Just Play Music!" made the U.K. singles chart.
