My Favorite Album Ever
Robert Keith | New York, NY USA | 01/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is my absolute favorite album in the world. I rank it above Forever Changes, Sgt. Pepper, and the Velvet Underground and Nico. If you like mid-60s pop by the Beatles, Velvets, the Who and the Kinks - this 1980 album will be a brilliant addition to your collection. Be warned - it's quirky. It was recorded on 4 track, isn't amazingly hi-fi, and has plenty of spooky reverb. Many of the best songs are upbeat, with updated neurotic lyrics and music by Dan Treacy. It has a sweetness, spirit and distance that has rarely been captured on record."
This Kid Loves It

"Wait a second, why is there only one other review for this album?! I don't know if it's my ultimate favorite (that's a hard choice), but it's definitely in my top 5 of all-time favorite albums. I first learned about it as the album that inspired indiepop as a genre. And when you hear the record, that's understandable. It has a mixture of punk and pop sensibilities that blend seamlessly and give rise to a sound that was, apparently, unique at the time. "And Don't the Kids..." proves that you don't need expensive equipment or complicated techniques to create music that will stand the test of time. Even though most of the songs have a pop culture theme, there's something really emotionally moving about the album that I can't adequately describe.
When you're done listening, you'll want to either listen again or pick up a guitar. You owe it to yourself to check out this classic."
