The Time Was Right
Puke N Vomit
***The first domestic release of the Partisans second album. Originally released in 1984 on Cloak & Dagger Records. The Time Was Right starts off with a bang—"I Never Needed You," one of the best Punk songs ever written, begs the listener to shout along with the chorus. The album features other indispensable Punk classics like the magnanimous "The Money Rolls In" and the equally impressive "Blind Ambition," which are both teeming with emotion and pleading vocals. Off the live side, some highlights are the entreating "17 Years," "Arms Race," with its Cold War commentary, and "Overdose," with its memorable bass/drum intro and infectious beat.
