V2 [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Cleary
As in their first album, V2 shows the Vibrators taking the driving energy of punk and applying it to songs that have a subtle, pop-like quality; while it does not have the wonderfully brash and itchy cohesiveness of Pure Mania, it's a solid album well-worth hearing.

The only really ineffective excursion on this album is "Troops of Tomorrow," a slow, menacing number that somehow gets too thick for its own good and is further marred by an excessively lengthy opening section. [Captain Oi!'s 2004 version included the bonus tracks "Knock You in the Head" and "Pushing Too Hard."]
