Good album to listen to but suffers from the issue of a majority of the tracks not being memorable. That being said, "Come On Eileen" is one of the greatest songs ever written.

"Too-Rye-Aye" è un buon disco fatto di tanti ingredienti apparentemente diversi: una fisicità rock, strumenti più legati al folk, un certo nervosismo new wave, una voce che lontanamente ricorda il Robert Smith più pop, Van Morrison, di cui riprendono ottimamente "Jackie Wilson said". Fresco e con almeno una grande canzone: "Come on Eileen".

You just can't go wrong with this album. A brilliant record full of great songs. It flows amazingly well considering it was a sort of compilation album, because it certainly feels like it's all part of a plan. Lovely songs in, old, liars A-E, and, until I believe in my soul. The obvious highlight though is the wonderful, come on Eileen, simply one of the best singles of the eighties. Good stuff.

the soul rebels is imo one of the best records of the year 1980. it still sounds fresh and ebulliant to me. its succesor is also a good record. it has conserved some of the energy and the zest for life and music of sftysr - but it seems a bit more mellowed and intendedly. kevin tries best, but he just doesn't reach the same unconcern and youthfulness of the predecessor.

Simply one of the greatest pop records of the decade. I prefer "Don't Stand Me Down" by a very small margin, but as a "pop" album, this is Rowland's magnum opus.

Anyone who could call this music for idiots obviously has not listened to the album and is prejudiced towards Dexy's. Too bad, it's a great album with each song having the kind of heaven sent melodies last seen since 'What's Going On', not without mentioning the lyrics displaying obvious depth and soul. It also features 'Come On Eileen'- what more do you want?

I have absolutely no idea what all the hate is about. It's a FANTASTIC album. All the songs are so soulful and fun. I enjoyed every single track off of this album and I'm glad I got the chance to own it.
