CD Reviews

Welcome, Buzzcocks version 2.0!
Miles Durrie | Canada | 04/01/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Buzzcocks are no nostalgia act. This is, by any standards, a great album of accomplished punk-fuelled pop, by a band most had written off as a casualty of the early-80s meltdown that vaporized the Clash, the Jam and the Sex Pistols. Great songwriting by both acknowledged maestro Pete Shelley and a startlingly mature and soulful Steve Diggle makes Trade Test Transmissions an utter joy from start to finish. New members Tony Barber (bass) and Phil Barker (drums) add a propulsive groove to the Buzzcocks' punk drive, picking up right where former counterparts Steve Garvey and John Maher left off. Looking forward to a lot more from the four talented individuals who make up this truly important and exciting band."
One of the best punk albums of the 90s
Miles Durrie | 09/29/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a rule punk rockers usually don't age well. Here the Buzzcocks MATURED well. They presented a grown-up version of their late 70s sound. Other great 90s albums from 70s punks are Iggy's "Brick By Brick", Ramone's "Mondo Bizarro", GG's "Bloodshed & Brutallity For All", the Damned's "Not of This Earth", Misfits' "American Psyhco" and Patti Smith's "Peace & Noise""
Best punk "reunion" album

(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the 90s a lot of 70s UK punk bands released reunion CDs. Only this Buzzcocks album-and the Damned's 1996 effort-were really any good."
