The dBs: Repercussion (Albion)

Ralph Traitor, Sounds, 27 February 1982

THE dB's PANDER to no-one, patronise no single style, are interdependent on each other and independent of just about everyone else. Repercussion is better than their first album, Stands for Decibles, which was better than the singles that preceded it, and you can rest assured the next album will excel the current one. All three are already better than most anything that fell, falls or will fall under the broad, battered banner of 'pop' at their respective times of release.
