AllMusic Review by

Before they completed their debut LP, Scotland's APB first issued a singles compilation, 1985's Something to Believe In. Straying into the territory of jerky indie structures popularized by bands like Wire, APB would emphasize their peculiarities underneath a pop template, fashioning short, tight guitar riffs in the middle of songs which could've been sung by Debbie Harry if given the right production. But the band's sub-funk Scottish rock wore thin as a prolonged collection of singles.
