"20 years later and this album still stands the test of time. If you're a fan of the Jam and the Mod Renewal (remember it wasn't a revival!!!), you owe it to yourself to pick this up. Full of angst and teenage frustration at life in 80's Britain, The Chords stood head & shoulders above the likes of the Purple Hearts, Merton Parkas etc. Billy Hasset's a great singer and the playing of Chris Pope and the lads is tight. This is a real classic and sadly the all-too-shortly lived Mod scene that propelled The Chords to the big league was also their downfall."
Classic Songs, remembered

"Having Been a Part Of the Second Mod Revival In England, I remember every track On this album. The Phoenix Society, The Mod Runs to Brighton, Dancing at the all dayers and Nighters, These are classic songs by a group who never got the credit they deserved.
If you dont Own It, do It now, Billy Hasset, Chris Pope, Martin Mason and Brett "Buddy" Ascott In all the Glory, the Classic Line up, after all this is what Revival was all about."
