GOLDMINE review of PAUL COLLINS “Feel The Noise”


One of the last of the class of ’79 who continues to proudly wave the power pop flag, Paul Collins is still down in the trenches, touring across the country and beyond and releasing excellent records such as this one. Collins sounds like a man half his age on Feel the Noise, and his energy and enthusiasm is contagious. (His voice also sounds quite a bit stronger since he’s given up smoking.) Two of the coolest tracks are ones that Collins has unearthed from the past: the outstanding, Nerves-era raver “Little Suzy” and the Collins-Steven Huff co-write “For All Eyes to See.” (Huff was a charter member of The Beat.) – See more here
