Performer Notes
  • Lloyd Cole & The Commotions: Lloyd Cole (vocals, guitar); Neil Clark (guitar); Blair Cowan (keyboards); Lawrence Donegan (bass); Stephen Irvine (drums, tambourine).
  • Arguably one of the finest British pop albums of the '80s, 1984's RATTLESNAKES is the brilliant debut of one of the finest singer-songwriters of the decade. Coming right at a point when synth-pop's domination of the UK charts was ending and a new breed of guitar-based pop bands led by the Smiths and Aztec Camera were the new British wave, RATTLESNAKES had the force of a major new work, and still holds up better than most of its contemporaries.
  • Cole's literate--at times self-consciously so--lyrics, and chiming, folk-rocky tunes are outstanding, and his terrific voice and lead guitarist Neil Clark's exceptional instrumental work put over the songs brilliantly. Fully half of these songs, including the Dylanesque "Perfect Skin" and the moody, romantic "Forest Fire," with Clark's remarkable ending solo, are all-time Britpop classics. Cole would do standout work after this, but RATTLESNAKES is simply perfect.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.132) - 4 stars out of 5 - "RATTLESNAKES has a rare sumptuousness....[It] remains a delirious swagbag, ripe for reappraisal."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.126) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Anne Dudley's string arrangements made all the difference between a good indie album and a timeless pop album..."

NME (Magazine) (9/25/93, p.19) - Ranked #33 in NME's list of The 50 Greatest Albums Of The '80s.
