Reviews & Opinions

RECORD COLLECTOR, 1988: Originally released back in 1977, this second long player from The Damned was greeted with a universal thumbs-down by the critics and fans alike. And judging by comments in the recently published biography, band members still think it's a load of old rubbish. How wrong they all are! [read full review here]

IRA ROBBINS/JAY PATTYN, TROUSER PRESS: Surprisingly enough, the second Damned opus turned its back on new wave formalistics and was produced by Nick Mason, drummer of true blue old farts Pink Floyd. With added guitarist Lu Edmonds and no audible stylistic plan, the attack sounds blunted, and there aren't as many great songs as on the first LP. Despite a great cover, Music for Pleasure doesn't live up to the title.
