    All according to the canons of the genre, no surprises, but very pleasing to my ears, groovy post-punk with great female vocals. It catches you from the first listening, but it is likely that such music will quickly get bored if you listen to it often... maybe, so far I have listened only once

      rrodion: And those are the same versions that are on the 5CD box set...kinda makes you wonder whatever happened to the original masters of the LP versions - don't it?
