Improve on perfection?
Stargrazer | deep in the heart of Michigan | 03/22/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It would be hard to give "Singles Going Steady" anything less than 5 stars, ever. In any context.

This remaster is, in most cases, excellent. The sound quality is generally better -- but I kept my old, unremastered copy too, if that tells you anything. The new mix is thicker, but I like the rawness of the original mix just as well for high-volume listening.

A few of the bonus tracks sap the energy from the original release. But a few of the bonus tracks nest like litter-mates with this already awesome collection of non-album singles.

Get this album one way or another -- whether this souped-up version or the older, clankier (but just as pleasing) version.

And the "Spiral Scratch" EP too."
Great introduction to a great band
Julie | Pennsylvania | 08/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Singles Going Steady is a great compilation of songs that span the most important years of this band's career. There are a ton of solid songs on this CD (24), which, when bought used, makes it a steal. This is a major staple worth jamming into your music library. It's also a great introduction to Buzzcocks music if you've never heard much of their stuff before. You can really hear the influence these guys have had on younger bands that try to copy the punk/post-punk sound. But of course, Buzzcocks do it better every time."
The Absolute Best Buzzcocks LP
Dr Moebius | Salem, MA United States | 12/26/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You need no other Buzzcocks' lp than this. The other proper lps are very good, mind you, but the group had a special magic about its singles. The only records that can match it are Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Once Upon a Time" and "Twice Upon a Time". We could only wish this lp contained their first recordings-- the ep Spiral Scratch with Howard Devoto, and that they had made more singles. So many 80s lps sound dated now, but not this one."
