Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Their first effort with new boy Topper, this is a superlative Lee Perry production, but there's no reggae feel to it. Actually, you can't be sure what Perry has done, but the sound is fuller and punchier than on previous records. One of the greatest opening riffs ever and a second half full of demented Strummer ranting over a barrage of controlled chaos; this is terrific. Strong contender for best A-Side of all time, if you ask me. Nice B-Side, too, with great sax solo.
