Funniest record review in TP ever?
June 11, 2020 10:38PM
From TP33, November ‘78 issue...

Last paragraph of the review of Boston’s “Don’t look back”:

“Anyone who buys this record is an asshole. Boston is laughing at you. Epic is laughing at you. Your parents are laughing at you. Your little brother is laughing at you.
Go ahead, buy it. Asshole.”

It's not as funny, but this review of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" has always stood out for its accuracy and bite: "Refined and carefully groomed for platinum success, it’s an undeniably good rock’n’roll record that is also reprehensible for its phoniness and calculation."

Seems a bit cruel now, but when the book came out, I thought the Gary Wilson review was the funniest thing ever:

Ira’s review of Foetus is one I’ve read and reread. Unique.
