Consumer Guide Reviews:

Quintessentially Yours [What Goes On, 1985]
All right, they do lash out with a nice, nasty buzz--reminds me of those long-lost speed boys the Vibrators. But no pretenders who take most of their 1985 Yank debut from their 1983 Aussie debut and none of it from the follow-up are getting any rock and roll future awards from me. B+
