Reviews & Opinions

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #19, NOVEMBER 1984: It's touching to see old bands hang in there, although I'm not too ecstatic about this case. Maybe I'd like a slightly less-produced version of some of the songs (way too clean and sparse for such slow-tempo stuff), but some of the songs are just plain lame. Splodge does a good job on the vocals though.

PUNKY GIBBON: Due to personnel changes and a low recording budget, there's a serious decline in the group's firepower here. This may have been up to the stanadrd of the former album had it not been for rushed production and letting Max Splodge take lead vocals on one song (the embarrassing 'Rude Boy'), because the songs themselves are perfectly acceptable: 'One More Day' and the haunting 'Jarrow Women' are as good as anything they have ever recorded; the title track an interesting experiment in 3/4 time (with synths); the likes of 'I Think It Should Free' and 'Who's Got The Money' are piledriving rockers of some note. Could have been great, as it stands, it's just pretty good.
