The Passage: Pindrop

Paul Morley, New Musical Express, 18 October 1980

THE PASSAGE have been a part-time group, on an interminably unfashionable label, whose agitating, pent-up seven inches have disappeared into the nowhere. With the disquieting Pindrop, The Passage can be accepted as major even by the cowardly, cautious and cynical: it's a work of disciplined intellectual aggression, frantic emotions and powerfully idiomatic musicality.
