5.0 out of 5 stars Undeniable teenage pop..... 22 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
From the first snare crack of Teenage Kicks we are catapulted into the vortex that is teen-heartache...Feargal Sharkeys unique voice makes your legs still wobble at the knees,whilst the abrasive guitars give us the strength to stand tall as this wonderful song ploughs its own furrow into our hearts...Timeless.They carried on writing kitchen-sink musical dramas and traumas,with the odd nod towards da brudders Ramone,but this lot had a Derry edge and the wit to set them apart from the rest..Work,rest and play....After the fizzing dynamics of the early songs,the ideas are still there,witness the naive steps to Beatley psychedelia....unheard of and unusual at the time,that is attempted on Julie Ocean and Wednesday Week...The enthusiasm appears to have slightly waned on the final few tracks and as they are still producing classy pop,its best that they ended on a slight dip than in a hole..at least they didnt get the Human League in to advise them!

4.0 out of 5 stars ... (not really) punk pearls revisited ... 8 April 2011
By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Thirty three years have passes since The Undertones erupted out of Derry, Northern Ireland, with 'Teenage Kicks', a song that has become a classic of its time. Originally on a demo that they sent to Radio 1 DJ, John Peel after it was rejected by the major record labels, it was the song they'll always be remembered for. Falsely lumped in with the punk movement, The Undertones were always more than just three chord no-marks, with their influences stretching back to the sixties and early seventies, as their pre-punk cover band days will attest.

Like a lot of bands they actually became more interesting as their commercial success waned, and by the time of their split in 1983, after four albums, they had moved onto creating some fabulous psych-tinged pop music. Singer Feargal Sharkey had some solo success before his poacher to gamekeeper conversion as a record industry mogul, with the guitar wielding brothers, John and Damian O'Neill taking their musical and songwriting skills of to That Petrol Emotion, who went on to release six albums.

However, 1999 saw The Undertones reforming, albeit with a new singer in the shape of radio presenter Paul McLoone. They've toured ever since and put out two albums of studio material, but it's the oldies that gets the punters coming back for more. Hence this release and their never ending tour. Now this has been out before, more than once in fact. So, if you already own "All Wrapped Up", "A + B Sides" or the previous release of "True Confessions", you won't really be needing this. But if, for some reason, you don't have it, then sort yourself out.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is 10 years since my last confession 18 Jun 2012
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Every other year comes an Undertones collection and this one is on the long gone Sanctuary label.The foldout booklet treats the Irish band with the same precision as a blues collection,full of detail,fax & info
10 chart entries only one of which made the top 10 over a 5 year period after which the Undertones went 2 ways-the solo career of Feargal Sharkey and the political band That Petrol Emotion (led by an American) who would cut more albums than they did with 7 chart entries none of which rose above the halfway mark.
In an age of punk the Undertones not only had a 50s style name but were closer to 60s music and were regarded as quite normal.
This CD is obviously modelled on the Beatles' White Album but really they should have done more covers
