Consumer Guide Reviews:

Pelican West [Arista, 1982]
"The important thing to keep in mind is that anywhere else in the world, besides the US, this is not considered a `New Wave' record. It is as mainstream and as accessible as you can get."--Rockpool Newsletter. (Editor's note: cf. Doobie Brothers.) "Britons can't sing"--Simon Frith, New York Rocker. (Editor's note: italics in original.) C+
