THE STRANGLERS – Suite XVI
Old punks in ‘Still cutting it’ shock!
Thirty years on and the Men In Black, ’76 UK punks The Stranglers still release good albums shock! Following on from the ‘Norfolk Coast’ album that hit the charts, The Stranglers are still on a major label, and sound fresh, contemporary and relevant. Opener ‘Unbroken’ almost sounds like a heavier Panic! At The Disco, with trademark keyboards and their dark gothic touches rubbing shoulders with groovy pop on ‘See Me Coming’, The Stranglers sound anything but the bunch of old codgers you would expect them to. Surprisingly bloody good!
