Blondie comes out speeding along with the first two tracks on Parallel Lines, playing angular New Wave. But after that, they follow a similar path of the Ramones of taking classic rock and roll sounds from 60's girl groups and doing their own take. “Pretty Baby” is probably the most blatant song in that mold.

I must confess I was really disappointed with this album. It isn't as quirky as the B-52's. It's not as raw as the Ramones. What it has going for it is Top 40 accessibility and a diverse sound over the course of the album, while still all fitting inside of New Wave.

Songs I Knew I Liked: “One Way or Another” and “Heart of Glass”

Songs I Now Like: “Will Anything Happen”

Songs I Don't Want to Ever Hear Again: “I Know But I Don't Know” annoys me as a strange combo of B-52's and Rush.
