  • The sound is big and lively with a strong bottom end - this is one of engineer Bill Price's better efforts behind the boards
  • Relatively quiet vinyl throughout this early UK pressing - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • Five Stars: "Few rock & roll records rock as hard or with as much originality as the Pretenders' eponymous debut album. A sleek, stylish fusion of Stonesy rock & roll, new wave pop, and pure punk aggression, Pretenders is teeming with sharp hooks and a viciously cool attitude."
