Teilweise etwas verstörend für das harmoniesüchtige southpaw Kind, aber dann mit "Kid", "Stop Your Sobbing" und dem unschlagbaren "Brass In Pocket" groß auftrumpfend.

Klasse!
****
Niemals waren sie besser und spielfreudiger als auf ihren Topalbum von 1980.

Private life und Kid gehören zu ihren besten Songs ever.
Knapp unter der 4.5

Stimme da mit euch dreien voll und ganz überein, ein
hervorragendes Album, irgendwo zwischen Punk, Rock
und New Wave.

Für mich sogar noch einen Tick stärker als das ebenfalls
gute "Learning To Crawl", d.h. definitiv ihr bestes Werk.....


5 - 6
****
...gut...
******
Sehr gutes Album.

Eine Symbiose aus Rock, Punk und New Wave.

Auf dem Album sind zwar keine Perlen oder Gassenhauer drauf, wie sie die Konkurrenzband Blondie damals hatten.

Aber mit BRASS IN POCKET ist ein Klassiker drauf
