Thoughts

I loved this! I know of Blondie’s famous singles but didn’t know much about the albums of the band. This was such a good one. Punk, a bit poppy, rock and of course, a superbly awesome woman helming it all. It was a bit more punk than I was expecting but not so much that it was alienating to me.

The singles are, of course, absolute classics and I knew more of the songs than I’d expected. But the rest of them hold their own and I’m confident this will be an album I return to many more times in the future.

Rating: 5 / 5
