Sehr Gutter und Schöner Song von Chrissie Hynde und Ihrer Leute....... in Mai/Juni 1980 war es das zweiter Hit in Holland (7 Wochen - Rang 24).

Stabiler Rocksong
****
Die Nachfolgesingle zu einem Lied, das so überragend war, dass es gar keinen geeigneten Nachfolger geben konnte, "Brass In Pocket".<br><br>Ordentlicher Versuch, # 8 in GB im Frühling 1980.
****
War ihre 4. Hitsingle in GB (#8 im April 1980). Geht so.
****
▓ Goede plaat van "Chrissie Hynde" en "The Pretenders" uit mei 1980 !!! Maar jammergenoeg dacht het Nederlandse publiek er anders over !!! (NL Top 40: 3 wk / # 31) !!!
****
solide
***
hier konnten auch nur die briten hitqualität erkennen..
****
sicher nicht sensationell, aber gut hörbar.
***
geht so
******
sehr gut
*****
Noch so'n alter Klassiker!
****
Das, was wohl der Refrain sein soll ist sehr gelungen, die Strophen mit den abrupten Wechseln gefallen mir nicht so. Ordentliche 4.
***
Peaked at #55 in Australia, 1980.
****
Ganz ordentliche Nummer.
****
goeie plaat
******
Zeer tof!
***
Goede plaat, niets mis mee.
****
artig rockendes Stück aus 1980 – hätte ruhig noch mehr Biss haben dürfen, die Grossstadt schläft nie – 3.75...
****
Akzeptabel, aber begeistern tut's mich keineswegs.....
*****
klassieker
*****
Tof nummer van The Pretenders uit 1980.
*****
Mit ihrer glasklaren Stimme hebt sie diesen Song locker aus der Durchschnittlichkeit heraus!
***
... maximal 3 + ...
***
Matig plaatje.
****
lekkere plaat
****
'Talk Of The Town' was in 1980 de opvolger van het erg succesvolle 'Brass In Pocket'. Ondanks dat het zeker geen slechte song is, kende de singel niet echt veel succes in de officiële Vlaamse charts (slechts één week notering, meer bepaald op positie 28).<br>4+
**
Trop soft.
****
Prima Pretenders nummer
****
Naja geht so, ich finde das eine bisschen unspektakuläre Nummer, irgendwie vermisse ich hier so ein richtiges Highlight!
****
prima nummertje
*****
Classic Pretenders met hun typische sound - hoewel niet hun meest opvallende nummer, wel eentje waaruit de kwaliteit van de groep blijkt. In dit geval misschien juist omdat het er iets minder uitspringt, blijft het een leuk nummer om af en toe terug te horen - mag dus best eens vaker op radiostations voorbij komen.
****
<br>****
***
Ein typischer Pretenders-Sound, der von mir nur durchschnittlich gewertet wird. Im Apr mit # 8 in UK ein weiterer Single-Erfolg.
****
Die zahlreichen Bewertungen mit "ordentlich" und "solide" treffen es hier.
*****
Ich finde das Lied sehr gut.
