Reviews & Opinions

STEVE SPINALI, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #2, SEPTEMBER 1982: The three supremely infectious pop-punk compositions on this EP are matched, unfortunately, by rather generic themes of teenage rebellion. "Steamroller" and "Numbers" ripple with fast melodies and enormously clever lyrics, and undoubtedly, "Viva la Revolution" could have been a classic if only they hadn't run the chorus into the ground. Very entertaining, but not very important.

PUNKY GIBBON: Three exclusive versions of songs heard in different versions on the first two LPs.

Additional Notes

Steamroller was re-recorded for Sound Of Music; Viva La Revolution is a new (longer) version of the Songs Of Praise track.
