Uncut Magazine said: “The Dream Syndicate led the way into the ’80s’ “post post-punk universe”, Steve Shelley declares in a booklet of peers’ testimonials. The rehearsals show they had more common ground with the East Coast experiments of Sonic Youth (barely recorded in 1982) than was obvious back then. But the alchemising of the ’60s’ most exciting moments into a lucid ’80s classic is The Dream Syndicate’s singular achievement.” Score: 4/5.
