Reviews & Opinions

STEVE SPINALI, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #15: JULY 1984: I've always been partial to the unique punk stylings of the PARTISANS, and their latest album, which contains one side of studio and one of live tracks, is quite strong. Most of the studio material has a richly-arranged, dense rock 'n' roll flavor, but with an abrasive hardcore edge. Their new version of "I Never Needed You" is much more raw and powerful, and the meaty, mid-tempo pop- punk title track is surely the best. The live songs are also excellently recorded.
