The Only Ones: Even Serpents Shine

Album Reviews:

Record Collector (magazine) (p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[The] rapturous EVEN SERPENTS SHINE is their unadulterated barbed masterpiece, boasting supernatural production, Koulla Kakoulli's ethereal counter-vocals and gloriously bittersweet love songs..."

Album Notes

Although known to the world at large for their transcendent (and seemingly timeless) hit "Another Girl Another Planet," the Only Ones were also capable of hard-hitting album tracks like the ones found in abundance on their second release, 1979's EVEN SERPENTS SHINE. Blending then-fashionable new wave signifiers with an old-fashioned, Doors-ian sense of drama and gloom, and enough rough edges to keep the punks interested, Peter Perrett and company crafted an excellent follow-up to their debut. This 2008 re-release has been digitally remastered and sounds great.
