$25.00

Pretenders is the debut studio album by British-American band The Pretenders, released on 27 December 1979 on Sire Records in the US and on 7 January 1980 under Real Records in the UK. 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”.

Nick Lowe produced the Pretenders’ first single, “Stop Your Sobbing”, but decided not to work with them again as he thought the band was “not going anywhere”. Chris Thomas took over on the subsequent recording sessions.

In 1989, Rolling Stone ranked Pretenders the 20th best album of the 1980s. In 2012, Slant Magazine listed Pretenders at number 64 on its list of the best albums of the 1980s.

Pretenders has been named one of the best albums of all time by VH1 (#52). In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked the album at number 155 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, with Pretenders maintaining the rating in the 2012 revised list, and moving up to number 152 on the 2020 revision. In 2020, Rolling Stone included the band’s debut album in their “80 Greatest albums of 1980” list.
