"Just a great album. Definitely their hardest rocking cd, not a bad song here, except the "bonus" tracks which aren't up to the standards of the rest of the cd. I'm a huge fan and like everything of theirs, but this and S.F. Sorrow, in my opinion, are their best."
"She Don`t" + Solid Rock!

""Cross Talk" was the Pretty Things` second Warner Brothers album, originally released in 1980
The opener "I`m Calling" is a solid new-wave type rocker, showing that Pretty Things were trying ( and able ) to keep up with the musicals trends of the late seventies/early eighties.
The album continues in the same vein with solid rockers, none of them particularly memorable until the melodic "Falling Again" with it`s driving Peggy Sue rhythm.
The stand-out track is the half acoustic "She Don`t", a fine song that would have suited the voice of Brett Anderson of Suede - fine lead-guitar break on that one too.
All three bonus-tracks are great, in fact much better than some of the original tracks. Especially "Sea About Me"
Conclusion: A good solid album; among the most hard-rocking Pretty Things albums.
My favourite tracks are "She Don`t", "Falling Again", "I`m Calling", "The Young Pretenders" and "Sea About Me""
