The essential recording by rock's most overlooked band Feb. 8 2009
By Matthew Watters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The post-punk era was a high-water mark in rock music, and bands like Magazine, Pere Ubu, PiL and Monochrome Set remain even cooler for never having achieved the widespread popular recognition that has been poured onto important "movements" in this music, before or since. With Magazine, there's still this joy of discovery to be had. And what makes them simply one of the greatest rock bands of all time is that Howard Devoto's psychosexual angst has a humour and poetry that transcends that of any other lyricist in rock's darker streams, while Magazine's music still seems timeless, chunky riffs built around scratchy guitars, swirling keyboards and a solid backbeat. Devoto, McGeoch, Formula, Adamson... their Secondhand Daylight is music that is horrifyingly dark and yet strangely uplifting and life-affirming, in the best rock tradition. It dates from 1978 but sounds like it could have been made yesterday. Only better.

The one must-have Magazine album Nov. 19 2008
By P. Quijada - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you have any interest in investigating this band, this, their 2nd album, is the only place to start. This has been in my top 10 rock albums of all time -- all genres -- for 25 years.

Great album - well remastered - mediocre packaging Oct. 24 2008
By John Hilgart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THE NEW REISSUES OVERALL:

SOUND: The mastering job makes a noticeable difference. The mix remains true to the originals, but there's more definition around the edges of each part - resulting in more powerful dynamics and an overall clearer sound. They refrained from maxing out the volume, which also helps with the dynamics.

MUSICAL CONTENT: They did it exactly right. Every non-album studio-recorded a-side and b-side has been slotted onto the ends of the appropriate albums. Previously, you had to buy the four albums, the non-album collection "Scree," and an additional disc to get the original a-side version of "Shot By Both Sides." (There was a great live 3-song b-side on an e.p., which is now only available on "Scree." Some alternate 2002 mixes of "Magic Murder and the Weather" songs are only available on the boxed set, "Maybe It's Right to be Nervous Now." The third disc of that box - the complete Peel Sessions - was released as a stand-alone cd in November, 2008.)

PACKAGING UPSIDE: Magazine had great album covers, but the Virgin cds all printed a diagonal banner across them indicating that they were budget cds. So that has been rectified. Also, the new cds come in clear jewel boxes and have nice artwork adaptations beneath the cds (which also have album-specific graphics on them). Typography on the spines is also specific to the albums and their visual aesthetic.

PACKAGING DOWNSIDE: The Virgin cds did a good job of adapting the back covers of the albums for the jewel box, and only the new "Correct Use of Soap" really tries to do that (poorly). The printing job is okay but not great. The typography on "Soap" and "Magic" is a little wonky, and the background color on "Soap" far more yellow than the original artwork/album. The Virgin cds also included the complete lyrics. The new cds do not have any lyrics. There's no additional graphic content either - photography, single covers, or anything else. Aside from the credits, all you get are mediocre essays that don't tell you much if you're already a Magazine fan.

Hit And Miss Nov. 15 2012
By Scott McFarland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The best tracks on this album I have long loved and still do - "Rhythm of Cruelty", "Back to Nature", and "Believe That I Understand". They have some rock aggression and some hooks, and work splendidly. Magazine sound like the best band in the world to me when they're in this mode.

Tracks 3 - 5 to me represent the cul-de-sac that this band fell into. The music's just pedestrian; it sounds like typical rock or disco filler that you would hear on some other mediocre album from 1979. Over such a backdrop, Devoto's lyrics and vocal lines generate no traction. The horrible drum sounds on this record don't do anyone any favors either - ironically, John Doyle's a fine drummer, but you wouldn't know if from the way his snare drum is echoed and magnified in this mix.

Of the other tracks, two of them sound like Pink Floyd to a shocking degree (though "Feed the Enemy" has some original elements) and "Permafrost" is a strange abstract tone poem, which I neither like nor dislike but know not to play in mixed company. An abitious mess of a record.
