Pretenders is the debut studio album by British-American band The Pretenders, released on 7 January 1980 under Real Records in the UK, and Sire Records in the United States. A combination of rock, punk and pop music, this album made the band famous. The album features the singles "Stop Your Sobbing", "Kid" and "Brass in Pocket".

The Pretenders' second album, Pretenders II, was released in August 1981 to follow-up success, preceded by the EP "Extended Play" in the United States in recognition of the demand for their material. By June 1982 bassist Farndon was fired because of his drug abuse and, two days later, guitarist Honeyman-Scott died of a drug related heart attack; Farndon himself died in April 1983 as a result of drug abuse. Viva el Amor, released in 1999, would be their first album to not chart in mainland Europe with the exception of the UK, Germany and Sweden; the album peaked at 158 on the Billboard 200. In 2002 they released Loose Screw peaking at 179 on the Billboard 200 and 55 on the UK Albums Chart. By 2008, Seymour and Hobson had been replaced with today's current line up that has produced 2 studio albums, that includes James Walbourne (lead Guitar) and Nick Wilkinson (bass guitar).
Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей Pretenders. And on Tattooed Love Boys, the vocals overpower the rest of the music. Space Invader and Private Life sound downright brilliant tho, as does Kid. It's a beautiful issue overall. The music sounds energetic, full and pure. Excellent drums and bass. The intimacy of the vocals on Brass In Pocket is divine. And delivered on a nice clean piece of 180g wax.

Few rock & roll records rock as hard or with as much originality as the Pretenders' eponymous debut album. A sleek, stylish fusion of Stonesy rock & roll, new wave pop, and pure punk aggression, Pretenders is teeming with sharp hooks and a viciously cool attitude. Although Chrissie Hynde establishes herself as a forceful and distinctively feminine songwriter, the record isn't a singer/songwriter's tour de force - it's a rock & roll album, powered by a unique and aggressive band.
