Editorial Reviews

First time on CD for this legendary Mod album that reached No.30 in the UK charts in 1980. Includes all five of the bands hit singles - ''Now It's Gone'', ''Maybe Tomorrow'', ''Something's Missing'', ''The British Way Of Life'' and ''In My Street''. The 11 bonus tracks include many non LP B sides, all now expensive collectors items. Great booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the true GREAT British Bands October 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
20 years later and this album still stands the test of time. If you're a fan of the Jam and the Mod Renewal (remember it wasn't a revival!!!), you owe it to yourself to pick this up. Full of angst and teenage frustration at life in 80's Britain, The Chords stood head & shoulders above the likes of the Purple Hearts, Merton Parkas etc. Billy Hasset's a great singer and the playing of Chris Pope and the lads is tight. This is a real classic and sadly the all-too-shortly lived Mod scene that propelled The Chords to the big league was also their downfall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Songs, remembered February 25, 2008
By C. Cox
Format:Audio CD
Having Been a Part Of the Second Mod Revival In England, I remember every track On this album. The Phoenix Society, The Mod Runs to Brighton, Dancing at the all dayers and Nighters, These are classic songs by a group who never got the credit they deserved.
If you dont Own It, do It now, Billy Hasset, Chris Pope, Martin Mason and Brett "Buddy" Ascott In all the Glory, the Classic Line up, after all this is what Revival was all about.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pure Power Pop January 11, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Overall, this is really a pretty good album. It's high-energy power pop that's sure to get your adrenaline pumpin'. One high point is a guest appearance by keyboardist Mick Talbot, who would later join forces with Paul Weller as the second half of The Style Council. There is also a decent re-make of the Beatles' "She Said, She Said", which stays pretty true to the original, only a faster tempo. On the other end of the spectrum though is a ridiculous cover of Sam and Dave's "Hold On, I'm Coming", which doesn't do the original classic any justice. But that's about the only real dud track here. Upon listening to this CD though, I find that a little bit goes a long way for me. The original LP format of this record contained 12 tracks. This re-issue CD version also includes an additional 11 bonus tracks. In most circumstances this would be a good thing, but it seemed that after the first 14 songs the music began to sound a little repetitive and monotonous. "Less is More" would have been a good rule to apply in this case. I thought 23 tracks was a little overkill. Don't let this deter you, though. If you are interested in the Mod genre, this album is definitely worth exploring. Other bands worth checking are The Time U.K., Sharp, and Squire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neo-Mod Mania July 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let's face it, the neo-mod thing, as well as punk was mainly a singles affair. In addition, there were less than a handful of neo-mod bands that were worth a crap, most being Small Faces and Who posers, or worse, Jam posers. Not so The Chords. They may have sounded a bit like The Jam but had a strong crop of original songs from guitarist Chris Pope that made them stand out. I wouldn't say they were the best band ever, or even the best neo-mod band, but this CD is about as good an album as there ever was, choppy power chords and anthemic riffs. It includes everything The Chords did that was worth a damn, the album So Far Away and all the singles. The production and mix sucks and the vocals are always off-key, but that's what you paid for in the late '70s, excitement and energy, not slick arena dreck. Buy this CD and play it loud and think about the rock star you really wanted to be in 1977 but never became.
