6. Greatest Hits (1980)
“You can’t go wrong with a Suzi Quatro album. She truly was a punk rocker before there was punk rock. Mostly known in the US as Leather Tuscadero on “Happy Days”, and her hit song “Stumblin’ In” with Chris Norman, which is included on this album, her music is generally a bit more rough edged than that.”
5. No Control (2019)
“Classic sound meets today’s production. All in all, she went out and made one hell of an album. The songs are catchy and fun. I hope the new songwriting partnership with her son, Richard, continues. They are really on to something.”
4. If You Knew Suzi… (1978)
“”If You Knew Suzi…” isn’t her best but it’s got a solid collection of songs; including her biggest hit “If You Can’t Give Me Love”, the catchy “Don’t Change My Luck”, the soothing “Suicide” and “Wiser Than You” being my particular faves. These are somewhat mellow tunes with a hint of country to them but she doesn’t forego her funky sound with “Evie”, “Breakdown” and “Non-Citizen” sounding a bit more like her earlier rockers.”

3. Aggro-Phobia (1976)
“Aggro-Phobia’ was a return to more conventional rock, though with an infusion of country that would become full-blown on her next effort, 1978’s ` If You Knew Suzi ‘. A strong release, to a lesser extent it shares something in common with her second album, ` Quatro ‘, in that it has too many covers of `standards’. But it has a number of excellent high points and it is rocky and interesting enough.”
2. Suzi Quatro (1973)
“Suzi rocked with her first bluesy, primitive and pop rock album. It contained everything and, well just rocked. Anyone who wants to hear a great album with nooooooooooo filler this is it. From the pop production line of Chinn and Chapman to her take on Elvis and her own and Len’s compositions it is all 100% band orientated good gear. This band lasted three albums and with one exception many more. She was no show pony but a bona fide rock queen.”
1. Quatro (1974)
“The whole thing has an update-the-50s-with-a-modern-70s-polish feel. But, other than in her obvious powers as a rock interpreter, `Quatro’ lacks any real stamp of Quatro as an artist. In fact, its dearth of self-penned work, in addition to the continued pro-written singles, is probably one of the major reasons rock commentators discount her as a serious artist.”
