"Separates" is better
Personally the 999 formula wears a little thin on this album. If you have their first two, then you know what 999 has to offer. 999 were never as melodic or hooky as their peers like Buzzcocks. This is kind of like mid-tempo Chelsea. On TBPIS, 999 lean a little more into pure pop territory. There is nothing to suggest this album should be filed in the punk section. To me it sounds like they are limited by the individual talents of the band members. The singer has a thin, high, nasal voice and it hasn't changed a whit in three albums. The guitarist plays clean but simple riffs and the rest of the band is competent, but no one has any power. They pander with songs like "English Wipeout" (basically a roll-call of various regions) and "Hollywood", with a tepid tale of hanging out on the Strip. This is for 999 completists, I'd say.
