5.0 out of 5 stars Noise that doesn't annoy, 6 Sep 2011

This review is from: Singles: Going Steady (Audio CD)
In the best traditions of Punk Rock I was going to keep this review short and straight to the point;

"This album is Punk-Pop perfection. Five stars out of five stars."

Then I realised there is one - very important - extra thing worth mentioning.

The track selection on this 1990 CD issue (CDP 7464492) remains faithful to the original LP release. It features 16 tracks which compliment each other perfectly, giving the album a very natural flow to the extent that it sounds more like a "proper" album than a compilation.

But. When this title was remastered a few years ago they threw in a whole pile of extra tracks from the tail-end of the band's career, tracks which are VERY different in sound and style to the original 16. This had the effect of completely destroying the original - and almost perfect - flow of the album.

So unlike this 1990 edition the more recent remaster sounds like a compilation, not a "proper" album. You may want to bear that in mind if trying to decide which version to buy.

This excellent review has , sadly , been placed not with the 1990 version to which it referred BUT to a 2001 version - which has more tracks, and may be inferior
