801: Listen Now (Island)

Jon Savage, Sounds, 15 October 1977

I DON'T know what I expected, but I thought it would be good (I mean credentials: Roxy Music/ Eno/'Diamond Head/’Tomorrow Never Knows'/Nico/etc.) but this wasn't it... It would be very easy to write this album off as hip MOR. Whatever that means.
