Oh no, the Violators have followed Blitz down the path toward Joy Division-clone material, with some imitation Siouxie vocals thrown in for good measure. I love the '60s melodies on the A-side, but it's sad to see all these recent punk bands adopting a slick, gutless sound. I vastly prefer their last 45.
