Song for song, Eat to the Beat is every bit as good if not better than the Blondie album which came before it (Parallel Lines), yet it always comes up short when accolades are given out. From the balladry and bombast of "Union City Blue" to the space-age disco of "Atomic," Debbie Harry & Co. never sounded so charged with artistic purpose before or after Eat to the Beat. And then there's "Dreaming," likely the best straightforward rock song Blondie ever recorded. If their second best, "Call Me," had been ready a year earlier and included here, you'd likely never find a copy of this album in any used bin anywhere.
