Reviews & Opinions

RED STARR, SMASH HITS, JULY 10 - 23, 1980: After flirting with punk in 1976/77, the elusive Vic has pursued a very individual course. With good lyrics and melodies, a simple beat and and sound sound more acoustic than electric, this sounds at times like everything from earlier decent Dylan to echoey rock 'n' roll to T. Rex, all coaxed into a dark, strange pop with an odd, casual folksy feel to it. Number one in a field of one - seek it out. (8 out of 10).
