Dritter Hit von The Specials in Holland.... # 13 in März 1980.
Es war einer single mit 5 Songs (einer EP):

TOO MUCH TOO YOUNG (LIVE)
GUNS OF NAVARONE (LIVE)
LONGSHOT KICK THE BUCKET (LIVE)
LIQUIDATOR (LIVE)
SKINHEAD MOONSTOMP (LIVE)

Sehr Schön...
*
organisierter Krach
*****
Nein, das ist eben SKA-Musik..., allerdings tönt es nach Punk. War Platz 1 in England!!!
*****
Diese erwähnte EP landete Anfang 1980 auf # 1 in den Britischen Chart. Damals sehr cool, heute immer noch hörenswert.
******
Auf Platz # 15 in NL im Winter 1980 !... Ihrer 3.Hit im Reihe.
*****
▒ Lekkere Live "Ska" plaat van: "The Special AKA", uit februari 1980 (Holland) !!! Bevalt me zelfs na 27 jaar uitstekend !!! Vandaar ook van mij de 5 sterren ☺!!!

@31-10-2016: ▒ (NL Top 40: 6 wk / # 13) ☺!!!

ich finde das album bietet viel bessere..
*****
Guter Ska-Song - ist eigentlich auch nicht unbedingt mein Genre.
P.S.: Kann ich hier auch zwei Reviews schreiben?
****
Der Hook wegen: eine 4. Eine der besseren Specials-Kompositionen.
***
Zu Beginn eine schicke Nummer mit interessanten Tempowechseln. Gegen Ende jedoch sehr abwechslungsarm. Und der Song dauert immerhin über 6 Minuten. 3.5
****
lärmig ist diese Ska-Nummer von 1980 keinesfalls, nur leicht zur Hektik neigend - und dazu leider klar zu lang ausgefallen - 4*...
*****
Super
***
Kenne nur die 2-minütige Live-Version und die haut mich nicht vom Hocker. 3+
*****
Nice
***
Matig.

Nicht unsüsser Ska, auch wenn's 1-2 Minütchen weniger
sicher auch noch getan hätten....

4 +
****
Bra låt.
****
Gefällt mir auch heute noch gut.
******
Genial chillig und witzig....
***
Trop puissant.
***
Gefällt mir nicht so. Aufgerundete 2,5*
******
Geweldig aanstekelijke ska
****
leuk nummer, echter klopt het niet dat het nummer uit 2015 komt....was al een hit in 1980 in diverse landen
