Joe Jackson: Night And Day (A&M)
Richard Cook, NME, 26 June 1982

He has the right sort of moves and an unimpeachable humanitarian streak; its just that the way he comes on unvaryingly as the hard man with a tendency to blubber somehow scents a bouquet of good intentions with liberal despair, not righteous pugnacity.
