5.0 out of 5 stars The next best thing after seeing them live 3 May 2010
Format:MP3 Download
A friend of mine asked if I fancied a night out to see The Alarm during their recent "Release The Pressure" tour. Remembering a few of their songs from the 80's I thought why not... Not really sure what I was expecting but.... What a night.

This is the album that I guess the tour was promoting. Direct Action, Plastic Carrier Bags and One guitar being my personal favourites. A mix of tracks, both rock and ballads and quite often both combined !

Had to download this the following day (along with some of their back catalogue). Hasn't been off my car stereo or mp3 since. I've got the whole family rocking along to Direct Action.

If you haven't come across The Alarm before or like myself remember tracks from the 80's, give it a try. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Rock n'Roll anywhere 18 Oct 2010
Format:MP3 Download
What can I tell you about Alarm main man Mike Peters? He never writes a duff tune, he gets better and better each year, if he was 25 years younger making music this good he would be the biggest star in the country. They are making a film called 'Vinyl' in North Wales (where he comes from) based on his genius hopefully that will bring him the recognition he deserves when it comes out. This album like all his recent albums (Guerrila Tactics,Under Attack, In the Poppy Fields is brilliant,catchy rock n' roll.
The Alarm's small but loyal following know how lucky they are to be able to enjoy these great tunes. This music is the perfect antedote to all that is wrong with the music industry. A nation that produced the Beatles and the Stones spends Saturday nights watching Rubbish Kareoke instead they should playing this album very load. This is British heritage right here on your Ipod enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man just gets better and better 17 April 2010
By Free Spirit VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download
My hard copy arrived this morning and I am over the moon with it. I loved Guerilla Tactics, and its my favourite album to date but Under Pressure is going to challenge that place in my heart.

The artwork is fab so all credit to KP but the music is mint! I love One Guitar but then again, how do you pick a favourite out of an album full of class songs.

This is punk rock n roll at its finest. Bring it on!
