“Even Serpents Shine” by The Only Ones - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1979Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

One year on and the quality remains high on the second LP from the cracking London 4-piece, augmented by some cool assistance from Adam Maitland (saxophone) and John Bundrick (keyboards). The rhythm section are as tight as ever, but it's Peter Perret’s decidedly non-macho vocals which steal the show, as always. None of these songs are what you'd call anthems but The Only Ones are consistently a joy – I doubt I’ll ever tire of going back for a listen.
