If you don't have Man They Love to Hate in your list of best Stranglers songs, then we really don't have anything to talk about.BONES wrote: ↑Tue May 05, 2020 1:10 amThat era is eminently forgettable, thank Dog it didn't last. La Folie and Feline were The Stranglers at their lowest ebb as far as I'm concerned. After The Raven, La Folie sounds like demos and out-takes from a decade before. (I think of the Meninblack album as more of a side-project, not part of the main canon.) At least Feline sounds like they meant to do it.
Mind you, I'm not big on Aural Sculptures or Dreamtime, either, but at least I can listen to those albums without tasting bile in the back of my throat.
Also, this is a bigger picture thing, but I've never been and never will be one of those people that instantly doesn't like whatever a bands most popular songs are. The knee jerk hipster thing to think that someone isn't familiar with an artists canon because someone mentions their hit is amusing to me. Golden Brown is a great song! So is Nice and Sleazy, Ain't Nothin To It etc. Taste that bile BONES!
