TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – Debut LP by… THE BOOMTOWN RATS

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘The Boomtown Rats’ by THE BOOMTOWN RATS
Released: September 1977

ALL MUSIC review: “Overall, there were enough power chords and snotty sentiments
to justify the punk tag, but it was already clear that the Rats aspired to the mainstream.”

Score: 3/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: sounded like Bruce Springsteen going punk. The Rats penned some solid rock songs for this underrated debut, appreciated by many only after the punk hype was over. And that front sleeve is still as iconic as it was back then. My score: 4/5.

TOP TRACKS: Lookin’ After No 1 / Never Bite The Hand Feeds / Joey’s On The Streets Again

* LOOKIN’ AFTER NO 1

* NEVER BITE THE HANDS THAT FEEDS
