Reviews & Opinions

ALEX HENDERSON, ALL MUSIC GUIDE: The soundtrack to the first Decline takes us back to a time when punk wasn't mainstream; a time when it was underground, cutting-edge and controversial. Sometimes informative, sometimes entertaining and sometimes shocking, Decline was unlikely to convert anyone who wasn't already a punk admirer. This superb album is recommended to anyone with even a casual interest in punk.
