AllMusic Review by

First released in Europe in 1980, NEUTRONICA was the musical backdrop to Donovan's increasing involvement in the European anti-nuclear weapons movement. With a tough, rock backing, the one-time minstrel of 1960s flower power performs a selection of anti-war songs that includes Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Universal Soldier" and Australian songwriter Eric Bogle's First World War ballad "No Man's Land," as well as the traditional Crimean War song "Heights of Alma" and his own sardonic "Neutron"--the latter acidly commenting on the neutron bomb's ability to destroy people while leaving buildings intact.
