The Bangles: All Over The Place (Columbia)
Craig Zeller, Creem, October 1984
CALL ME a female chauvinist if you must but most of the year's most stimulating records have come from women. My current turntable dream set includes the Pretenders' wondrous 'Show Me', the Go-Go's piano-pounding 'Head Over Heels', Bananarama's delirious 'Robert DeNiro's Waiting', Jocelyn Brown's Arethaesque 'Somebody Else's Guy', Tracey Ullman's exhilarating 'Breakaway' and the Sheila E's splendorous 'The Glamorous Life'.
