Still loving this,
This review is from: Pretenders Ii (Audio CD)
My favourite Pretenders album (though I've yet to engage with the third, and wondering why I haven't done so yet). There is a rawness and energy here not found on the first. I prefer the more live feel and in-your-faceness of this collection over the more mainstream sound of songs like Brass in Pocket. Okay so "Bad boys get spanked" is silly, but it's gloriously silly. The sequencing of the songs keeps the momentum going from start to end. No filler. Don't forget the wonderful "I go to sleep..." There's nothing to fault here for me - I enjoyed it when it first came out, and still love it now.
(After this, it's the Isle of View album I keep coming back to.)
