Post Script: Sire/Real/Rhino got together working out all the copyright & royalties stuff to give us [nee consumers] a spiffy lil assembly of a remastered 'Pretenders' in a spiffy 3-way cardboard gatefold, double-disc of niceties release. Given the state my earholes are presently in, I find the remastering above average so on that teeny hint... Just OWN IT. Thank you. Oh, and what's for tea?

Having spent my "formative" years in the wilds of Waikiki and the North Shore... Well, bruvs ya kinda find yourself liking a bit of sass in a lass, ya dig? So along comes Chrissie Hynde and I find myself enraptured... No! Ensnared by her sassy, Punkish, worldly girly style of Rock and Rock persona. Please do not ask me why I have only given this stellar album a 98 because I don't have an answer. My suggestion: If you got ears with earholes functioning like... Regardless of gender, ... read more

This album came to me out of the ethers. Living a rather stagnant "island" life, my thirst for music was growing along with my access to the inner webs. Luke Haines has a grand voice, a lyrical style of his own, and a band that gets the whole of the Auteurs vision. Tracks like 'Showgirl', 'American Guitars', 'Junk Shop Clothes', and 'Starstruck' demonstrate perfectly what makes this band and its debut such a treasure. Frankly, I just dug it out of storage after not listening to it for ... read more

Two tracks. The opening piece 'Electron Birth' clocks in at 54:59 and is incredibly rich in rhythm, sequencing, timbre, and sonic headiness. Ethereal bruvs... Otherworldly. What's not to love about an EM record that grabs hold of your psyche and swirls you madly in a state of surreal hypnosis? Another stunner by Roach that has me hyper captivated. Check it out at https://steveroach.bandcamp.com/album/electron-birth. Amazing, amazing music created by electronic machines and one hella musical ... read more

Having spent my morning fussing with cut flowers... The last of the season, which does lend some pleasing aesthetic to my home allowed for the solitude to enjoy music while I labored. My new pair of earphones brought to life a well-selected playlist and made this task so much more enjoyable. Frankly, the world of flowers... My world immersed in flora separates me from the ordinary humdrum of life in a cube. Eff that, yo! So bruvs I'm grooving to some Roach as I zip around, pausing to glance at ... read more

The instrumentals aren't much too; they're tolerable, but ultimately not that impressive. I'd say that the album does improve a small bit with the second half, but it still isn't enough to cover up the damage done on that frankly horrendous first half.

Hey there, friend! I absolutely understand the reasons as to why someone might love that album; however, it just isn't at all for me. There isn't much that I can say about this album, mostly due to it not being my absolute least favorite of all time or anything like that (even with my quite low score), but the biggest offender there has to be Young's vocals. They're like nails on a chalkboard to me, and they subtract any sort of enjoyment I could be getting from these tracks.
