CD Reviews

This guy is incredible!
Corky | 09/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"He was the angry young man before Costello even started. With Brinsley Scwartz (a Pub rock band that Nick Lowe use to be in) doing the music and Graham Parker singing made a perfect combination. Most of the critics back then named it one of the best albums of the decade and if you hear it you'll know why. I do like his first two albums Heat Treatment and Howlin' Wind better myself since they have more of a gritty soulful swing like Van Morrison unlike this album is rock but what he does better on this album is the songwriting he is at his peak on this album."
Girls.... want to understand male anger?

"we can get , like really sensitive, passionate and vulnerable too...
Plus we're smarter than we look and act...

This album is a masterpiece, lyrically, and with the backing band, the Rumor at its Zenith, with incredible bass/drums/lead riffs .... *****

"Its not the knife in the heart that tears you apart ....
Its just the tought of someone sticking it in ...."

Sparks: timeless classic

"I bought this record back in 1979, when I was a freshman at Colorado State University. I needed to get the remastered version on CD. I did... And by the way kids, this is MUSIC!
So you youngsters out there will thank me for weeks if you buy this classic from the punk era. As far as you could tell, this could have been recorded last week. It's timeless.The two bonus tracks were cut during the original sessions, but were left off of the original album. Buried for 22 years these two songs are as great sounding as anything on the record."
