Buzzcocks: Senses Out Of Control, 10″ Vinyl EP Review

Buzzcocks: Senses Out Of Control, 10″ Vinyl EP Review

14th April 2022 0 By John Deaux

It’s hard to fault a new Buzzcocks record, mainly because they’re legends and because your brain automatically sees them through rose coloured specs (especially if you’re a fan).  Although I DO like the Buzzcocks, I’m not a fan. I appreciate them and what they do, and they do it well. 

The Buzzcocks new release Senses Out Of Control is only 3 tracks but what a trio they are. 

The title track and teaser of the album is so reminiscent of old school Buzzcocks. Steve Diggle sounds as good as he ever has. His vocal delivery style has never changed and he’s still one of the few vocalists that you hear and it’s automatic recognition.

Purely based on this track, I’m excited for the album.

The B side contains Carnival Of Illusion and Hope Heaven Loves You both of which are absolute bangers. Considering both of these tracks are non album songs, I’m currently wondering why, what’s going to top these? The album has to be really strong if these have been left off. 

This 3 track teaser is well executed and it’ undeniably them especially with old school sounding production obviously done in a modern way.

Fingers crossed the album delivers.
Score 7/10
