5.0 out of 5 stars It's a sociologist's paradise...
Doubtless people will always argue whether this song or that is punk, new wave or whatever (it's started already) but there's no argument on how fresh, urgent and inventive all this music still sounds, whether you lived through the era and have heard it a thousand times but especially if you weren't even born in the late 70s-early 80s - listen & learn ! And just for the...

1.0 out of 5 stars How can this be a PUNK album?
I don't remeber Blondie, Bow Wow Wow, Teardrop Explodes or Joy Division being PUNK? Not to mention the Pretenders. Who's idea was this?

And just for the record guys, any CD which includes John Cooper Clarke's 'Beasley Street' is worth five stars by default.

4.0 out of 5 stars Changing music for the better, 27 Nov 2004
This review is from: Best Punk Album in the World... Ever 2 (Audio CD)
If you do get around to buying this I would suggest getting it with its predecessor, owning both volumes one and two, a set of 4 cd's of the music that defined the late seventies and early eighties, you get a sense of just how important songs like these really were. And what's great about this collection is it's way of not just giving you punk music (although a large number of the bands featured would balk at the classification) but also throwing in the more important tracks of the era such as Patti Smith's Rock 'n' Roll Nigger and bands like Teardrop Explodes, Wire and Joy Division. You can literally feel the music evolving from band to band. I would've liked the songs put chronologically sure, and there are a few poor choices on here, but all in all a wonderful collection. Someone once commented that if you love the songs that much you should own the original albums anyway, true, but if you're new to it all, this is a great place to start.
