The Beat - s/t

Paul Collins is something of a power pop legend, and my opinion of this album is certainly influenced by his position as an elder statesman of my favorite genre. That said, I think I still really like this album and not just because I'm contractually obligated to do so. Some of the power pop of the 70s and 80s really drowned in the production values of their respective eras, but Paul Collins made sure The Beat stuck to a more classic and timeless sound. As a result, this album is great and will continue to sound great well into the future.
