Blitz: Voice Of A Generation (No Future) *****

Garry Bushell, Sounds, 16 October 1982

THIS REALLY is the big one, final proof if any were needed that the punk renewal of the last two years is more than just a second hand pose. To get right to the point, this is the best punk debut since the Cockney Rejects Greatest Hits Vol 1, although in terms of feel, suss and relevance it's more on a par with the Clash's first album.
