CD Reviews

A timeline of the Buzzcocks
AR | Olympia, WA USA | 11/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This record is an exceptional collection of live BBC recordings done by the Buzzcocks documenting their entire career so far. From 'Spiral Scratch' to 'Modern', from the 70s to the 90s, it's all represented here. This is not a collection of one session, but rather a portrait of one of the most important and greatest punk bands. From their snotty punk roots to their later power-pop, this CD lets you hear the evolution of the band as they continue to perfect their skills and songwriting while still remaining relevant to the times. The recording quality may not be consistent for all of the sessions, but it's never poor. There's even the various radio show lead-ins that graced the original broadcasts. For people who might've felt a little let down by the Buzzcock's latest record 'Modern', the versions here of the songs from that record are much rawer and more in-line with the Buzzcock's earlier work. They may even sway you to reevaluate your feelings about the newest record. For true Buzzcocks fans, this is one record you can't do without."
