The Movies: The Movies

Richard Cromelin, Phonograph Record, August 1976

THE MOVIES' debut release is a rather spotty, nondescript affair, more likely due to prematurity than to sheer lack of talent. The album reflects the versatility and competent professionalism of a well-seasoned, club-oriented performing band, but is deficient as regards identity, attitude and direction and comes across more as an audition or sampler than a forceful statement.
