Remarkable albums from the past
‘A Different Kind of Tension’
Released: 15 Sept 1979
ROLLING STONE wrote: ” ‘A Different Kind of Tension’ is the Buzzcocks’ most formidable record yet. Chief songwriter Shelley has finally arrived at something approaching a hard-bitten and reasonable world view. Technically the band’s fourth LP, is bursting with many of the same laudable features that graced the ‘Singles Going Steady’ set: bold and big-bottomed rhythms, combustible buzz-blur guitars and leader Pete Shelley’s rushed,
iambic vocals.” Score: 5/5 – Full, review here.
TURN UP THE VOLUME: “Underrated album. Their best non-stop avalanche of riffs loaded, barbed wire pop knockouts. From start to finish’
TOP TRACK: ‘You Say Don’t Love Me’
