Personal Troubles And Public Issues captures a moment in time perfectly - when Punk bands emerged blinking into the sunlight the morning after the party finished and tried to make some kind of sense out of the Post Punk years. Caught between the first Punk explosion and the hardcore resurgence of 1982 The Wall on this LP attempted to bridge the gap through energy, inventive playing and good tunes. Perhaps they may have fallen between two stools, but they did so in an elegant manner. - 4/5
