Reviews & Opinions

BEV HILLIER, SMASH HITS, JAN 22 - FEB 4, 1981: The long delayed third album opens strongly with 'Dancing With Myself' which is the sort of perfectly acceptable pop punk that Gen X have always done well. But from there on their fascination with rock and roll mythology takes over and they end up sounding every bit as dated as Tony James looks. Even the enchanting guitar contributions of John McGeoch and the somewhat less subtle approach of Steve Jones do little to compensate for the overall blandness of the material. This music's lost its taste. Try another flavour. (2 out of 10).
