Reviews & Opinions

RED STARR, SMASH HITS, OCTOBER 18 - 31, 1979: A concept album, no less (note same intro and outro), about ideas of a super race in pre-war Germany. Thin ice indeed but thankfully there's no sicko Nazi chic to be found in Richard Jobson's dense purple prose. Stuart Adamson's powerful music is really excellent - far more sophisticated but not so instant as before. Quite an achievement. Includes 'Charade'. Best tracks: 'Animation', 'Working For The Yankee Dollar'. (8 out of 10).
