Buzzcocks (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Mar 18, 2003; Lead Performance: The Buzzcocks

Buzzcocks' seminal 1979 compilation Singles Going Steady remains one of the all-time pop-punk watersheds, so it's nice to hear that middle age hasn't diminished the songwriting skills of original 'cocks Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle. Hooks are plentiful, and tunes like ''Sick City Sometimes'' and ''Stars'' lodge themselves in your head. Play it once, and you'll find it alright for kicks; spin it again, and you'll likely discover that loving these limeys is a habit that sticks.
