  • Summary: Signed to a major-label deal after just one single, New York punk foursome The Star Spangles make their full-length debut with Bazooka!!!
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. A glorious blend of punk and power pop straight outta '78. [22/29 Aug 2003, p.133]
  2. Good stuff, and it sounds raw as hell.
  3. Bazooka!!!'s distillation of rock history roars with irresistible energy and zest, making the album an unabashed delight. [Oct 2003, p.138]
  4. An uneasy hybrid of furious, three-minute punkers and would-be anthemic ballads in the time-honoured Ramones style. [Aug 2003, p.115]
  5. For most of Bazooka!!!, the Star Spangles sound like a rowdy bar band just playing a set of songs they love.
  6. 50
    With strictly 1978 sleeve and clothes, and no new ideas, they just don't matter like their models did. [Sep 2003, p.97]
  7. 42
    After one truly cool tune, their feeble musicianship becomes a problem. [Oct 2003, p.113]

    Bazooka!!! undoubtedly sounds great, if nothing too original. If you're not looking for something that's going to go into new Bazooka!!! undoubtedly sounds great, if nothing too original. If you're not looking for something that's going to go into new grounds, this should do you perfectly. It'd be way too harsh to drop these guys from their record deal after this, it sounds superb, a little like the Ramones in some way. Collapse
