This is not an 'explanation' of pop music. Nor is it a history of pop music. Nor does it pretend to cover the whole pop scene. Nor is it a film with definite conclusions about pop or violence or anything else. It merely presents -as accurately as possible-the evidence to support or contradict what the pop people themselves who appear in the film are talking about. It is left to you to decide whether what they say has any truth or not.

"An experience which ten years from now will be a definite document of its time... a programme which no parent could afford to miss... sordid, splendid, funny, pathetic... an epic" (Daily Express)
"That awful film" (Sunday Telegraph).
"Hypnotic" (The Times).
"Mesmeric" (Daily Mirror).
"Stunning and bewildering" (The Listener).
"Overwhelming" (Sunday Times).
"Brilliant and frightening" (New Statesman)
"Remarkable... I have no doubt that wherever it is shown the film will win professional acclaim" (Spectator)
"If Mr. Palmer's intention was to disturb, he succeeded brilliantly. It was absolutely chilling" (Daily Telegraph)
"Just brilliant" (Melody Maker)
"A visual blockbuster... was unique" (Sunday Express)
"It said more about pop than a year of Top of the Pops" (The Observer)
