It's all been said before.

"Another one of the most amazing albums in the world, buried beneath all that radio-friendly garbage. Though they vanished in 1982 with No Wave and the rest of punk music, this could have been released yesterday. an amazing take on the sound of the Velvet Underground, it has their jagged edges, but they find their own voice. God, The Only Ones are the Only Ones for me!
Here is what our local paper, "The Tulsa World", said in an excellent summation of this band and this album:
"Before there were the Replacements, the Psychedelic Furs, there were the only ones-a group of romantic punks with a penchant for pop and a healthy dollop of heroin chic. "Another Girl, Another Planet" has been covered to its nub, and no wonder.""

"right from the first track this album is quality, with Peter Perrets nasal, but expresive voice, and meaningful lyrics, the only ones hardly put a foot wrong. I could listen to Another girl, Another planet every day for the rest of my life and never get bored, but the album is more than just this song. Slow tracks like, the whole of the law, and no peace for the wicked balance out the fast pace of city of fun and another girl another planet, making this album a trgically unoticed master piece. (peter perret in the one are good too)"
Amazing!

"This album is fantastic, a forgotten gem if you ask me. The first time I listened to it I loved several of the songs and thought that the rest was really good, but after a few spins you learn to love 'em all.
