AllMusic Review by

Starjets' only album, God Bless Starjets, typifies the sort of tight, catchy, guitar-driven punk-pop that constituted the early British new wave scene. The tunes can be a bit frothy, but they're exuberant as well, somewhat in the vein of fellow Belfast popsters the Undertones. Still, even though the band had attracted some media attention for the single "War Stories," God Bless Starjets failed to make much of a commercial splash, eventually spelling the end of the band. Captain Oi!'s 1999 reissue adds all of the group's non-LP singles, making it the perfect one-stop purchase.
