"Power Pop ground zero. The beginning of the extremely enjoyable but often tragically ignored genre of music."

"The most notable British contribution to the birth of this predominantly American music."

"One of the early pioneers and the sweetest. The focal point of the band is Eric Carmen before he became degraded into poor man's Barry Manilow"

"Fantastic first 2 albums by the rocking duo from Tulsa who combined sweet melodies with an Elvis-like R&B."
Heaven Tonight

"Arguably the biggest band in power pop's brief heyday in the late 1970's. This is perhaps their best all-around album though there are better-known albums including the classic At Budokan."

"An absolute gem of an album. The debut album from the greatest unsung heroes of the genre recorded in thier living room. Lo-fi ear candy at its best."

"The band that forced the namesake English ska band to change their name to The English Beat. An exciting debut from the legendary Nerves alumnus Paul Collins and co."

"Power pop with a New Wave twist. Slightly quirky but full of exuberance. Their highly touted first 2 albums in one package. 20/20 is a classic. Lookout every bit as good."

"A bit bubblegum-ish and decidedly Seventies. But they sure can write cracking melodies full of innocent charm. A good clean fun."

"Brits don't do power pop very often. But when they do it, they always come up with some of the best. One of the undisputed classics from the great man."

"Another British veteran hailed from country's rich and beloved pub rock tradition. 'Girl of My Dream' alone is worth the price of admission,"

"The British band that gave us arguably the greatest power pop anthem of all time, 'Starry Eyes'."

"The band who played gutsy, punchy power pop in the vein of The Who. Fabulous debut album combined with so-so follow-up."

"Exhilarating debut album from the band led by Peter Case, another alumnus of the Nerves."

"Daring, intelligent, experimental power pop with a hint of Brian Wilson and Alex Chilton."

"Even weirder than Chris Stamey's contributions to the dB's. Darker off-kilter power pop from the man who produced REM's best works."

"A surprisingly good album. Packed with one great song after another. Much better than their greatest hits album and that says it all."

"Tense, passionate and bloody exciting. Mission of Burma of Power Pop, perhaps?"

"Excellent debut album by the King of Power Pop of the 1990's. A gripping stuff that gets stronger and stronger towards the end."

"Teenage Fanclub at the pinnacle of their powers. One of all-time classics in the pantheon of Power Pop masterpieces."

"Power pop meets grunge. Highly addictive and sickeningly sweet metal-coated sugar."
Teenage Symphonies to God

"One of the greatest 90's power pop with some country flavour thrown in for good measure. Intimate, warm and thoroughly engaging."

"Even the hot tips from Noel Gallagher couldn't stop their commercial failure and the inevitable split-up. The sound of the Fab Four if they were still around in the 90's."

"Unbelievably anachronistic and bombastic but catchier than flu. The best album that ELO never made."
