5.0 out of 5 stars Life Goes On..., 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smash It Up: the Anthology 1976-1987 (Audio CD)
This album has been on repeat countless times on my iPod and none of the songs have grown old at all.
I discovered The Damned only a few months ago after finding Eloise and falling in love with Dave Vanian's voice. Although this was after their punk ear in the 70's. Their new romantic songs with a slightly gothic hint to go with his deep vocals, their songs clash beautifully together from New Rose and Love Song to their anti war songs such as In Dulcea Decorum based on a Wilfred Owen poem which proves they have a very particular style in lyrics speaking their points of views meaning their a punk group that should have been better known since they came out just before Sex Pistols with God Save The Queen.
The band is still going today with their latest album in 2008 So Who's Paranoid? which I listened on YouTube, although with an uninteresting cover, their tracks reminisce on their earlier stuff, it'll be like they're still in the 80's, the greatest decade in my opinion for music.

Although I was a little disappointed the compilation didn't include Is It A Dream? which is one of their better songs with the strangest of lyrics such as 'stand in a line like a parking meter' & 'then, suddenly like fly in a cuppa tea, I'm stirred and no longer free, to fly away' which just made me an instant fan, they definitely stand out from most bands.
