Reviews & Opinions / Lyrics

RED STARR, SMASH HITS, OCTOBER 18 - 31, 1979: Likeable but predictable - the slightly seedy wimp pop formula is getting rather threadbare. Buzzcocks really need a mire daring approach to their music and the best stuff here comes when they do branch out. Good full sound and some very good instrumental wok (especially bass), and generously timed as usual. Best tracks: 'I Believe', 'Hollow Inside'. (7 out of 10).
