Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: The lads charge through 17 bona fide top-of-the-second-division second wave punk, with chugging/slashing guitars, shouted Cockney vocals and, almost without exception, a great lyric (Harper is one of punk’s most underrated wordsmiths, capable of wit, insight and unflinching realism). Garrett also plays a mean guitar. It contains different versions of the three preceding singles, as well as perennial crowd-pleasers like 'I Couldn't Be You', 'Young Criminals' and 'Disease'. Hardly radical, but damn good: this is virtually a Greatest Hits LP and is one of the best punk albums ever.

CHARLES SHAAR MURRAY, 1979: U.K. Subs are a punk group; their thump and bellow is a patented example of what got stuck in the filter after the prototypes moved on. [read full review here]
