Some very useful reviews on here with which I tend to agree - should have The Selecter on it ( quite a hard to get track) and not everything has aged well. Pauline Black has been quite vocal about the poor efforts made by their producers of the time and the sounds are thin here. However, the hits remain quite brilliant ( in several bands I haven't found a drummer who can get Too Much Pressure right, this is cleverer stuff than straight 8ths ska)and some of the lesser known ones are too - Murder is a 12 bar based burst of energy.
Their new album has been picking up some interest and this is a nearly perfect companion to get with it to see where it all came from.

A good slice of nostalgia from what I think, for my tastes, was the best British based Ska revival band from the 1980's. Because Pauline was in the band it made their sound less overtly masculinised than the rest of their contemporaries. they're still going, in a slightly different form, at the time of submitting this review and still sound good.

The two tracks that I know best - '3 minute hero' and 'on my radio' stand out. 'Celebrate the bullet' was a new track to me and its a corker - not what I expected from this band. 'James Bond' skanks along in a predictable but fun style and 'too much pressure' bounces along quite reasonably. But in terms of impact, I am hard pressed to bring the specifics of any other tracks to mind. It's not that they're poor but to get 4 or even 5 stars they just need to be better.
