Reviews & Opinions

STEVE SPINALI, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #6, MAY/JUNE 1983: If you're put off by the glaring deficiencies of the latest DAMNED album (Strawberries), this 7" might be closer to your liking. The two B-sides are unsatisfying, but "Generals" could be the best pop song this band has delivered in a couple of years; a good emphasis on piano and guitar, along with politically credible lyrics, combine to create an arresting, well-conceived track.

Additional Notes

The A-Side is from Strawberries. The song 'Citadel Zombies' is actually only 1:58 long, but it is bookend by some silly uncredited nonsense.
