They've charted many hits and while "Misplaced Childhood" is one of their most notable and popular albums, "Clutching at Straws" is a true musical classic that should be included with any 80's music collection.

While all of the songs on this album are amazing, the best has to be "Sugar Mice" - both lyrically and musically.
