5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 16 Mar 2000
This review is from: New Boots and Panties!! (Audio CD)
I first listened to this album when I was about 14. At that time I remember being amazed at the language in some of the tunes but after the initial shock wore off what remained was an amazingly catchy pub rock album with fantasically well observed thumbnail sketches of English working class life in the late Seventies. Dury's lyrical skill would put a lot of today's rappers to shame. "What a Waste" trundles beautifully along while "Plaistow Patricia", "Blockheads" and "Sweet Gene Vincent" provide you with plenty of opportunities for spilling your beer whilst pogo-ing. "My Old Man" is a great character sketch and a lesson in economy of words. This album is basically the "Best of Ian Dury" and stands as an extremely important album in the history of English artists. He's like Mike Leigh on speed and cider! Everyone should own it
