“Love Bites” by Buzzcocks - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1978Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

“Love Bites” arrived just six months after the debut and, already, there’s a remarkable difference in the band’s sound, with added pop sensibilities and ever more complex rhythmic structures, diluting the purer punk, but with some very fine results. It’s good to see a band moving on but, as strong as this album is, it seems to me to contain “the next best group of songs” after the glory of “Another Music”. Therein lies the trouble with scorching debuts…
