What a beast of a punk album. Full of joyful energy, aggressive attitude, biting intelligence, and succinct social commentary, this is everything you want your punk music to be. One of the best. Nothing to hate, everything to love.

Boy you just didn’t need much musical ability to make Brit punk. Only the last track was interesting to me. The rest you can literally skip to any point in any track and it sounds the same. Not for me.

Buzzcocks summed up the mission statement of punk right in the exact middle of this album: "I hate modern music/Disco, boogie, pop/They go on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on/How I wish they would stop." This shit rocks. Best track: Sixteen

This is a great punk record which keeps the aesthetic - snarling lyrics, in your face electric guitars over a thumping drum and bass rhythm section - but adds depth with the songwriting and structure. Really accomplished and entertaining.

70s punk is known for being angry and anarchic, but I have always found Buzzcocks to be so full of joy. This is ridiculously uplifting, they sound as though they are having so much fun and that is always infectious. This album is relentless, it doesn't stop for breath all the way through, and it leaves me with a big smile on my face. Good stuff.

“Another Music in a Different Kitchen” by Buzzcocks (1978) Never heard this album or group. There’s a lot wrong with this album. Lead vocals barely carry the cookie cutter melodies, performed (and I use that term loosely) with a tone that repels. Drums fail to maintain tempo, and bass is robotic. Guitar work is on the lower end of the garage spectrum. Lyrics are adolescent, with numerous errors in grammar, syntax, and usage. This is not intelligent music. I can imagine that some young and very inexperienced ears were attracted to the ‘rebelliousness’ of the sound and marketing, so this album might be nostalgic for some, but when those listeners are dead, this ‘music’ will be too. 1/5

The thing I love about Buzzcocks is that they actually kind of gave a shit about what they were making punk songs about. Their sarcastic tone comes across loud and clear, and their songs are much more musically complex than their contemporaries while being just as fast and aggressive. Going into this album, it was already one of my all time favorite punk albums, so it's a five in my book. I also love that the tracks lead into each other, which is a really weird thing for a punk band to do as that was more of a high production/progressive rock kind of thing to do. Buzzcocks were way ahead of the curve. Orgasm Addict has always been kind of an underrated classic. Highlights: 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15.

I love 'cocks. I am very glad to see this album on the list, it generally seems to go a bit under the radar comparative to the other early punk classics. It's probably my second favourite album of the first 1977/1978 wave (since you are asking, the first is always going to be The Clash by The mortherfucking Clash).

Never really was a punk in the 70s. More of a David Essex fan! Nevertheless was surprised how much I enjoyed the nostalgia. Reminded me of Sixth Form parties when I really started defying authority. I think I missed two whole lectures! Always loved I Am An Antichrist by the Sex Pistols from their Never Mind The Bollocks album. Mainly because Paddy Lewis liked it in my A level History class and I fancied him!

бля, шо у этого сайта за привычка «подготовительные» альбомы совать перед классикой? Впрочем в этом случае я не расстроен, исходя из пластинки Love Bites я и так считал базкоксов одной из самых интересных панк-групп, а рассматриваемый альбом уверенность не только не пошатнул, но и своеобразно укрепил. Если на последующей работе будет куда больше конкретно попсовой мелодичности и более-менее ортодоксальных инструменталов, то здесь во многих песнях группа пускается в интересные, пусть и не всегда работающие эксперименты. В какой-то момент в голову даже пришло сравнение с Devo, только в менее нердовскую и синтвейвовую сторону. А так ведь много схожего: дёрганные ритмы, быстрые пассажи, отрывистые вокальные фразы, небанальные мелодичные ходы, тексты про какую-то хуйню-малафью. Угар, в общем. Угар это хорошо. Это лучше, чем ёбаная скука. Но всё же до верхних оценок не дотягивает — в основном потому, что после нескольких прослушиваний банально башка начинает болеть от скорости и нервозности песен. Я на самом деле прошёл полный спектр эмоций за пяток прослушиваний, от неподдельного интереса и подпевания до просто невероятного раздражения. Так что ну 7 где-то, наверное, на позитив всё же больше ориентируюсь.

Killer album! Great all the way through. Crazy great and clean for 60s punk - riffs, solos, bass lines, drums, all of it! Maybe a bit light lyrically but it's a punk album? And a nice contrast to much of the heavier and/or anarchist punk at the time. Also clean vocally. I'd listen pretty much any time. Only other exception is the lack of standout killer tracks.

It's the Buzzcocks, impossible to not like. One of the early pop punk bands who did it right. A series of short awesome and catchy tracks with enjoyable vocals and solos. It's a lot of fun, with some neat post-punk and neo-psychedelia tricks. I actually really like the addition of those last 4 singles, even though the placement is kinda weird after the dramatic finish of "Moving Away from the Pulsebeat." The intro track was great, the next few were kinda forgettable, but it grabbed my attention with "Sixteen" to the end. Overall pretty fantastic album and great introduction to the Buzzcocks, although I much pretty their famous compilation "Singles Going Steady."

Recuerdo haber tenido un par de canciones de los Buzzcocks en días perdidos de Napster. Siempre me gustaron sus canciones se sentían con bastante energía y mejor realizadas que mucho punk. Honestamente, aunque me gustó esperaba más del disco; sobre todo la primera mitad medio desinfla. No sé por qué... es el tipo de punk que me normalmente me gusta más. Quizá en este caso en disco completo llegan a sonar demasiado iguales a ratos y se pierde un poco, quizá es mejor banda de sencillos que de álbumes. La segunda mitad del disco es mucho mejor y toso se empieza a mezclar más. Me gustó en especial Autonomy y me encantó Moving Away from the Pulse Beat, que aparte de ser una canción de punk de 7 minutos tiene quizá de los mejores y más originales trabajos de batería y guitarra del género. Entiendo que este sea el debut, pero incluso sin conocer a fondo la discografía se que les he escuchado mejor material. Al menos sí es disfrutable. Una anécdota simpática… ¿Se acuerdan de Sister Ray? Esa canción de Velvet Undergound que hablaba de una historia de drag queens teniendo una orgía fallida mientras la banda toca un improvisado de diecisiete minutos en torno a tres acordes. Los Buzzcocks se formaron porque a los integrantes les mamaba esa canción.

Never listened to this band all that much, but I feel kind of weird about the fact I really preferred some of the extra tracks on the extended version I listened to than the main tracks that make up the original sequencing. And, I mean, that nevvvvver happens. Usually those songs don’t make the cut for a reason, right? But “Orgasm Addict,” “What Do I Get?” and “Oh Shit,” are all pretty awesome. Favorite track overall though is “Sixteen.” Hands down. Otherwise, this is really a record that made me further realize that like 98% of all classic punk is really just sped up distorted pop songs.

Menevää punk-rokkia 1978. Kuriositeettina mainittakoon, että levyn avaavassa Fast Cars -biisissä lausutaan useampaan otteeseen "Fast Cars!" mielestäni hyvin samaan tapaan kuin Agent Orangen Bloodstains -biisissä (1980), mutta ainakaan googlen ensimmäiset hakutulokset eivät paljastaneet tieteellistä yhteyttä näiden kahden välille.

Another piece of evidence that this is a very British-centric list. The Buzzcocks bring their energy and fast-paced playing into an album that highlights punk and its British movement.

Punk rock group that I hadn't heard before as back in 1978 I wasn't much into music yet. Mostly good stuff, but some of the material is a bit "homogeneous".

No dispute that this album is a staple in the beginnings of the punk scene. It’s fast, raw and juvenile to the bone. While there’s certainly a place for it as one of the most important albums in music history, I’ve got to be in the mood and headspace to really enjoy listening to it.

Upon my initial listen I am not extremely thrilled with this piece. I think that it's very prototypical punk music, and that modern music would have suffered without acts like Buzzcocks. Unfortunately, I don't think I understand it yet, and most of the album just bleeds together for me. After hearing the song Ever Fall In Love from a different album, I think I understand the influence, but I need to listen to more of their work to fully respect what this album and the group means for culture going in to the future. Just an average score for now.

L'eterna banda per descubrir del punk anglés. No tan iconoclastes com els Pistols, ni tan excelsos com The Clash, ells van anar al seu ritme, amb un punk rock accessible i original, molt personal. Malgrat l'aparició d'aquest disc a la llista, cap dels seus àlbums s'apropa a l'escolta "obligatòria", però la majoria d'ells són suficientement bons com per pertànyer a qualsevol col.lecció, i sempre amb alguns temes excel.lents, tot ells recopilats a la, aquesta sí, imprescindible 'Singles Going Steady'

Este disco tiene una vibra parecida a la de Sex Pistols, pero tres rayitas menos anarquista, y me atrevería a decir que en algunas canciones es como escuchar a los Arctic Monkeys regresando en el tiempo a los 70's. Creo que lo que más me sorprendió es la enorme discografía de este grupo, del que no conocía su existencia hasta que escuché este disco. Supongo que es un grupo muy local. En cuanto a la parte musical, si bien no me desagradó, tampoco me prendió tanto. La canción que más me agradó fue "Moving away from the pulsebeat" por las percusiones, pero si no volviera a escuchar este disco nunca más en la vida no me perdería de mucho.

I listened to this album a couple of songs at a time and it was tolerable but overall it's very repetitive, apart from a couple of songs in the second half that gave a much needed change of pace. British punk pop rock bands - buzzcocks, sex pistols, stranglers, clash etc. have their songs but not a genre I can listen to for any length of time.

Not really into this one all that much. These guys are pioneers for sure, but unfortunately they fall victim to being the cliché of British punk music because so many other bands after them sounded similar. Not their fault by any means. Aside from that, the music didn't last much with me though altogether still wasn't bad at all.

Dobrze ze tak krotki mateiral sie akurat trafil na ti ajowy dzionek, wiec notka musi byc rownie krotka, buzzcocki to oczywiscie wyspiarska banda probojaca sprzedac punka w dosc popowej postaci, album jak i sama banda z tego samego okresu co sex pistole, wiec druga i najwieksza fala punkerstwa do mainstreamu na wyspach, co z pewnoscia wyroznia ten material to jego liryczna popowosc, powtarzajace sie zwroty przez pol traka, regularne refreny, brak sweringu, brzmi to jak sexy pistole po utemperowaniu wokalu, bo pan Pete Shelley, ktory jest zarowno glowna gitara jak i wokalem nie jest zbyt ekspresywny w swoim wystepie, wiec gitarka rytmiczna i bas musza ratowac instrumentalnie plyte, bo o drumsach nie da sie za duzo powiedziec, moze poza tym, ze brzmi to malo punkowo, a bardziej power popowo, ale takie mam odczucie do calosci tej plyty, na plejke dodam otwierajacy fast cars, bo ranting na szybkie fury to dosc orginalny pomysl jak na punkowe otwarcie plyty, no i instrumental calkiem dobry jest w porownaniu do reszty kontentu, no moze poza zamykajacym moving away from the pulsebeat, 7 minutowy kawalek, wiec daje miejsce na rozwoj instrumentalny, pomimo tego ze jest w nim jakas minuta ciszy pod koniec, to i tak czyni go najdluzszym trakiem tej 35 minutowej plyty, ktora pomimo lejbela punkowatosci nie porusza tematow okolo polityczno spolecznych, a bardziej skupia sie na autorefleksji i oczywiscie relacjach miedzyludzkich

Found it a bit forgettable. Sex Pistols-lite stuff without many hooks

Fairly standard late 80s punk, at the poppier and more melodic end of the spectrum. 2.5/5.

Oh good, late 70s UK punk. Hooray. I think the lawn mower pissing me off outside sounds better than this. 2/5.

I too love fast cars, but the only part of that song I liked was the bass. And that is about all I like on this album. It's classic Brit-Punk but isn't that formative to the genre to me. The Sex Pistols had come and gone by the time this album was released. And The Clash had put out one of their two albums on this list. It's a listenable album and fits the genre well. I mean they essentially started as a Sex Pistols fan band after all. For a debut album it isn't bad but their next album is significantly better than this one. Just doesn't really feel like it is one of the greatest albums ever.

It's ok - not the most remarkable releases in the Buzzcocks' repertoire - but fun if like me you're into the sound.

Annoying voice. Repetitive melodies. And generic instrumentals (not without some interesting bits, however). It has everything I hate about punk.

Best Song: I Don't Mind. Not great, but it at least breaks through the monotony of the other songs by trying something marginally different. Worst Song: Moving Away From The Pulsebeat. Just another guitar solo born or nothing, going nowhere. Overall: Just a mish mash of noise, mixed poorly, that rarely deviates from the continuous droning line that drives ever onward. In what context does someone listen to this music? When so absolutely knackered that the musical drone mirrors that kind of stumbling myopia of heavy inebriation. Maybe then I would like it. Sober it's an absolute chore.

Greenday predecessor, make it 1970s and Brit Rock. Cacophonous and complainy. 1/5

I've said it before: punk is very hit and miss with me. This one is a miss, unfortunately. 1 star.

This exercise is galvanising my hatred of Punk and Folk. More unlistenable, shouty, trashy garbage, over rated nonsense.

the first thing that struck me was that I truly did never mind this band before despite growing up with a tv show mostly about music with a title playing on their name partly so despite possibly never hearing them before (or if I did not often and no songs in my catalogue) I was fairly sure I knew their general sound based on their location, era and that above association to never mind the bollocks "I hate fast cars" agreed and like the music but quite an aggravating song thanks to the vocals Not a fan of the vocalist well vocals but lyrics are good No Reply is just funny to me thanks to the ridculous "backing"/call return chorus so can't comment much on it as that is all I can hear No idea if falsetto is the right name for his singing or if it is just too high pitched but either way it is too much. "They go on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on How I wish they would stop" - yep they do "I don't know if I'm an actor or ham, a shaman or sham" the later Fiction Romance starts off good and possibly to offer some redemption to an utterly terrible album but it is a pretty crappy song. autonomy like fiction romance starts off good, the drummer and sometimes the guitarist might be the only decent part of this band for me but not good enough to work around the singer and too experimental and not in a good way. I need like most of the album is just vacuous noise. 1 - terrible, can't stand as not a single song added to my liked songs a very tedious album

Ich kann mir dieses uninspirierte Gedaddel nicht anhören. Man hätte sie damals zum Verzicht auf musikalische Aktivitäten auffordern sollen, leider gibt es die Band aber immer noch. Schade.
