Johnny Marr of The Smiths said in an interview: “There was one day when I was playing along with the Deuce album which was a complete turning point for me as a guitar player” and critic Dave Thompson says the album “peaks with the closing, broiling ‘Crest of a Wave’. With bass set on stun, the drums a turbulent wall of sound, and Gallagher’s guitar a sonic switchblade, it’s a masterpiece of aggressive dynamics, the sound of a band so close to its peak that you can almost touch the electricity”.
