AllMusic Review by

British band the Photos stayed together only long enough to release one--self-titled--album in 1980. The follow-up, the curiously titled CRYSTAL TIPS AND MIGHTY MICE, lingered in the vaults until its eventual exhumation in 2008. Like its predecessor, it shows a punchy band mixing punk energy with power-pop hooks and new-wave production touches, with dynamic lead singer Wendy Wu simultaneously channeling Debbie Harry and Patti Smith, while still retaining her own style.
