A new release from one of the originals and overall, it is a fine collection of songs. Will fans of their early, harder sound enjoy it? Perhaps, perhaps not...but they probably stopped listening long ago once the original vocalist/guitarist left the group (Hugh's got a new CD coming out this Summer). Their current guitarist/vocalist does a fine job and the songs are well written, playing & production values are solid.

A lot less hair and a bit wider waistlines will be found within. Who cares - they still kick it hard while making you think twice about the ways of the world. Drummer Jet Black still stands/plays strong, even flashing a "Frank from Blue Velvet" look on inner tray card. And the CD cover? Go for the import version; all four of them hanging by the necks in black - what else would you expect for these die-hards.

A short note from a Stranglers fan who had given up hope over 30 years ago, persuaded by some fantastic Amazon UK reviews. My hopes are more often than not dashed by these old favorites and their supposed comeback albums, but I'm a glass half full kind of guy, so I took a chance. It's great, the band sounds energized and, perhaps most importantly, they sound vital once more. It is one of the albums of 2013, without question, so of course it'll be ignored here in the states. Don't be one of the many, pick up this album and have it be our little gem of a secret! If you can find one, grab the limited diction with the second concert CD, which includes a really eclectic selection of tracks from this band and their massive back catalog.

What's not to love from the The Men They Love To Hate?

Snarling, percussive bass-lines over hard drumbeats, wrapped in Doors-like keyboards and highlighted with stinging Telecaster tones - musically, this feels like one of the most consistent albums in their long catalog.

Vocally, JJ's voice on Freedom Is Insane (a great track, btw) is a croon worthy of Dave Vanian and elsewhere, "new" boy (what, 13 years = new?) Baz Warne offers his own County Durham take on the trademark Stranglers menacing delivery.

Old school Stranglers fans who haven't kept up with the band since Hugh left, will enjoy this great album. The tracks: Another Camden Afternoon, Giants, Freedom Is Insane, Time Was Once On My Side to name but four, would not sound out of place on Black & White or The Raven.

And if you get the chance to check out this line up live, take it - they will blow you away and you will see how seamlessly the old and new material blends together.

Since I'm a long time fan I can't give this band a bad review for providing me with more music. It's in their 70's style in some ways. Good stuff.

What an incredible value this is. Giants is a great studio disc featuring excellent compositions, playing and vocals. The bonus live disc shows these guys can still rock the house with a career-spanning repertoire. Oh yeah... All this AND you get bass that will rattle the loose paint off your walls!
