    Iconic

    Clearly one of the best albums of all time. Honestly, every song could have been a hit. Blondie at their best.

    Their best IMO, though Eat To The Beat isn't far behind it.

    I think part of its brilliance is its length - I think it's less than 40 minutes end-to-end and there isn't a bad song on there.

    Anything other than probably I Know but I Don't Know and that Buddy Holly cover could've been a successful hit single - they were massive in the late 70s/early 80s.

    I do love a short but brilliant album

    Im always shocked when I remember One Way or Another was never released in the U.K. - absolute madness.

    Blondie - Parallel Lines (1978)
    My rate : A (Wonderful)

    Top 5 songs :
    1. Sunday Girl
    2. 11:59
    3. Heart Of Glass
    4. Picture This
    5. Hanging On The Telephone

    It's very rare time, when I agree with music critics, but "Parallel Lines" actually all-time classic.
    "Sunday Girl" spent 9 weeks on the top of my retrospective chart.
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).

    Dreamer, you must to visit Lithuania and see/listen a live concert of your YVA strawberries.
