The Partisans are my favorite of the "UK82" bands and probably the best thing ever to come out of Wales. That said, their singles and first LP are way better thant this LP. Not to say this LP is bad, it's just not as outstanding in every way as the first LP. This second LP saw the songs move in a more Clash direction, and away from the upcharged 82 sound. When the band reformed later they stuck with this Clash kind of of sound and they are really good at it, I am rather fond of the "idiot nation" Lp they did in the early 00's. So if you love punk rock, you need this record, but if you on some kind of limited budget, get the first LP and the singles first, then step up to this one.
