REVIEWS
Average points: 4.33 (Reviews: 3)
*****
Ihr Debüt-Album. War #4 in GB Ende 1979, 45 Wochen in den Charts. Anspieltipps: A Message To You Rudy, Nite Klub, Concrete Jungle, Concrete Jungle. Knappe 5.
****
Ihr Mix aus Rock und Reggae hatte ab 1977 einen Namen. Ab 1979 waren sie siebenköpfig und eine aufregende Mischung aus Punk vs Ska.<br>#4 in GB und 45 Werungswochen war der Verdienst für ein Album das ich früher gerne mochte.<br>Aber bis auf zwei geniale Stimmungsmacher (Rudy und den Monkey) ist das heute doch nur mehr guter Durchschnitt.

Ein durchaus unterhaltsames, stellenweise auch witziges<br>Debutalbum von ihnen, aber eine 5 wär mir dann doch ganz<br>leicht zu hoch gegriffen....<br><br>4 ++
