AllMusic Review by

The album that opened the door to Shaky's upcoming dominance of the U.K. in the 1980s, Marie Marie catches him still poised between the "vintage" rocker he used to be and the family friendly superstar he would become. The hits "Marie Marie" and "This Ole House" echo deliciously with the ghosts of idols past, and further highlights "Slippin' and Slidin'," "Shooting Gallery," and "Baby If We Touch" establish the album as very much the son of its predecessors. And there can be few higher recommendations than that!
