    She had such a great voice, this album gives her a time to shine, if you could compare it to anything I would say it on par with what Peter Shelley did after Buzzcocks. It isn't like The X-Ray Spexs at the time but could seen more like being with the heavy reggae influences that The Clash and the Two Tone movement at the time. I tend to remember that even most punk band tried to have a world record under their belt but couldn't pull it off like this (Looking at you Siouxie and The Banshees).

      The Translucence album is such a joyful listening experience (if verging on hippy) with great vocals (of course) and imaginative and ear tickling music. Definitely not punk. It was a brave release and showed Poly Styrene to be a true original.
