REVIEWS
Average points: 4.4 (Reviews: 5)
****
Mit diesen Debüt schufen sie ein harmloses Popalbum, was damals den New Wave Stil betrifft, zeigten Blondie Perfektion...
Die ersten 7 Songs fallen kaum auf, erst die letzten beiden Songs heben das Album etwas ab.
#18 in den USA und eh klar, der Rolling Stone wählte es zu den besten Alben ever (#282).

Ja, stimme dir da zu, das Debutalbum sollte gleichzeitig auch
ihr bestes bleiben, ein Wegbereiter der Pop und New Wave
Welle der 80er Jahre.....
**
Einfach öde. Schülerband-Niveau.

Die Amis fanden's trotzdem gut.

Platz 4 der Billboard-Album-Jahrescharts von 1979...
*****
Ein fast schon exzellentes Debutalbum der Amerikaner.

Ist schon was besonders. Einerseits klingt die platte so als würde man sich eine Folge DIE WILDEN SIEBZIGER anschauen und dort könnte man die Scheibe als Soundtrack hören andererseits klingt die Scheibe auch sehr modern und man nimmt die 80er Jahre vorweg wie einige wenige Synth-New Wave Anleihen.

Ähnlich vergleichbar mit einer Scheibe von TALKING HEADS aus den 70ern

JUST WHAT I NEEDED ist jedoch das Highlight schlechthin

und der /die über mir - Nein sie klingen gar nicht wie eine schülerband

Zurecht einer der 500 besten Alben aller Zeiten laut ROLLING STONE Magazine
