Wire: 154 (Harvest)

Jon Savage, Melody Maker, 29 September 1979

WRAPPED IN an abstract minimal geo-deco sleeve (all straight lines and waves, pastel shades), with its own label and a "free" 45, the third Wire album is as aesthetically consistent as it is commercially crucial.

Total word count of piece: 677
