Great record! Anthemic and swaggering, intense and passionate , authentic and sincere. Sounds like nothing else before or since in British music and Kevin Rowland sounds like he's singing for his life! This album meant so much to us back in 1980.

Well the horns are exactly where the emphasis should be IMO. On the follow-up, strings take a much more important place, and I think it fits them less. Stunning record, anyway.

I prefer Too-Rye-Aye over this. This album has too much emphasis on the horns, and while Dexys has fantastic horn players, it's not where the emphasis should be.

Fantastic album! A mixture of Punk, Jazz, & Soul. You wouldn't think that would work, but it seriously does.
