AllMusic Review by

One might want to start with any of this incredible new English band's four singles in lieu of their superb debut LP, Olympian (or at least the last three, the first is a collector's item now), since a tape of the 12 songs (8 non-LP) on them actually competes well with the album in unruffled, raffish brilliance. "Sleep Well Tonight," the song that deservedly broke them in England, is backed by the winsome, sarcastically funny "Sick Sober and Sorry," as well as the glum-but-trying-to-summon-up-defiance "Her Fifteen Years," which is subtly sinewy and sad.
