Biography

The story of how The Stranglers came into existence in the first place, is perhaps atypical of the music industry. No less surprising then, that it’s history too, is unusual. It began in 1973 and that story is both long and complex.

A lengthy discourse covering those formative days has now been covered in some considerable detail in Jet's musical odyssey elsewhere on these ... Read more in Amazon's Stranglers Store

So then, The Stranglers 10th (geddit?) album and their last one with Hugh Cornwell. Well not exactly their best, lets be honest, but let`s not write it off just yet.......
For some reason the Stranglers seemed to be running out of ideas in the late 80`s. This album and it`s predecessor (the sublime "Dreamtime") took about 3 to 4 years each to record and release. This album was due for release in 1989 but problems with mixing/multi-tracking pushed it into the 90s (along with a mammoth planned UK tour).
It could be said that the band weren`t working as a unit anymore in favour of the personal home studio recording etc. To add to these problems it was decided to create an album for the American market. How can you have a band like The Stranglers with an eccentric English as they come lead singer and a very Euro musical feel becoming an overnight American sensation? Doesn`t happen does it?.....No!.
Big American producer Roy Thomas Baker was drafted in to add a lot of unnecessary gloss to a collection of songs that if anything needed stripping down. Incidentally the demos (produced by Owen Morris who went on to produce Oasis) to this album are favoured greatly by the fans (and even some band members!) to the finished product we have here.
The album does hint at some of The Stranglers past trademarks. The bass menace of opener "Sweet Smell Of Success", keyboard riffs a plenty "96 Tears" and "Someone Like You", lyrical genius "Out Of My Mind", the odd refreshing stint of Jean Jacques on vocal duties "Where I Live", "In This Place" and the reflective "Never To Look Back" (possibly the best track on the original album).
Occasionally the album does have a kind of B52`s "Cosmic Thing" American sound to it. Check "Let's Celebrate" for a rather cheesy example.

This album is the last Stranglers effort to feature Hugh Cornwell, and is therefore quite sad. However, it's not all doom and gloom-it is a very reasonable album. My personal favourite is "Where I Live"-although I don't really know whether to take it seriously, due to the cheesy american accent.There are other great songs, such as "96 Tears". I like the album cover as well-it is the most interesting album cover I have come across before. To summarise, it is a good album, and definitely one for any Stranglers fan. However, if you are a victim of nostalgia-BEWARE!

Tenth album, 10 great songs (not including bonus tracks & b-sides) and a production which is almost an eighties homage to the Wall of Sound, THE STRANGLERS bow out in a blaze of glory. Bow out in the sense that this was HUGH CORNWELL's final creative thrust with the band and where I drew a line under them as well. I adore THE STRANGLERS, but up that point and no further.

Cornwell's biography, A MULTITUDE OF SINS describes how the pressures and differences came to a head during '10' but it really doesn't show in the music, unless you substitute perceived energy as anger. Whatever the case, it's a heavy, multilayered, upbeat sound which suits THE STRANGLERS down to the ground. Instruments and vocals are so dense at times it's hard not to imagine a small orchestra with singers doing the business instead of the regular four-pack plus brass.

Okay, the sound isn't as polished to perfection as DREAMTIME but it is nonetheless one final blast of almost-perfect, gutsy, Strangler Pop: a high never to be repeated, only (and arguably) self-plagiarised. Best tracks: OUT OF MY MIND, SOMEONE LIKE YOU and NEVER TO LOOK BACK.

Buy it and mourn the passing of something very special.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Format: Audio CD
For the group's tenth studio album, they decided to title their album `10'. Love the cover, but I agree with Hugh Cornwell that by now the group had seemed to have run out of steam. Where is the politically-correct bite? Where is the politically-incorrect bite? What happened to the cynicism of the system? Instead, most of the songs possess bland safe lyrics that any other bland safe pop group would be proud to possess. This is such a disappointment after the wonderful `Dreamtime' album.

The only songs of note are "Sweet Smell Of Success" with its wicked congas and solo trumpet, the echo-rocker "96 Tears" and the harder-edged "Out Of My Mind". The track "In This Place" has a haunted hippy feel, as if it formed part of a concept album: `ghosts we thought we'd laid to rest have returned'. As for "Let's Celebrate", I can only hope that its existence on this album is ironical; if not, oh dear! Some arrangements are either inept, muddled or both.

Having said all this, there is no duff track on the album ... it's just all so bland. Marks out of `10'? Six.

Has its charms 24 Jan. 2008
By screenplay writer (and lawn care specialist) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've heard all the Stranglers CDs with Hugh Cornwell as lead singer. I saved buying "10" until last because I think the general critical consensus is that the band was running out of energy at the point that they recorded "10". Hugh left after the CD was completed. I have to say though that although this CD is hardly essential, it's not without its charms.

The negatives: The CD is overproduced and some of the songwriting is slight. It's a very upbeat CD, kind of like Radio Disney mixed with The Stranglers. There's one song called "Celebrate", and that's basically what it's about, "C'mon, celebrate!" When I first heard that lyric I thought, "Man, have I wasted my money." You want dark themes and aggression from The Stranglers, not a call to party.

The positives: Getting back to the song "Celebrate", although it is insanely upbeat, at one point in the song Hugh says something like, "Child, I want to taste your honey", and you can hear a little something menacing and sexual in his voice. Although the CD might be too radio-friendly overall, there are moments like that when you can hear a bit of the Stranglers' personality. Also, I have to admit the producer knew how to churn out radio ga-ga. Almost every song has some additional instrument or harmony that helps keep the songs interesting. I don't know if I'll be cranking this one up in my car, but it's fine for background music around the house.

If you're going to purchase one of the band's late period CDs with Hugh ("Aural Sculpture", "Dreamtime", or "10"), you should get "Aural Sculpture" before you get "10", and for that matter buy "Dreamtime" first also... but if you're already got those CDs, "10" might be worth you hearing.

(Also, see my "So you'd like to know..." list on Amazon devoted to The Stranglers.)

climb on board the funmobile 23 Nov. 2005
By Dave Portola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not the pinnacle of their career, but certainly one of their best and worth purchasing. Look closely at the cover for a clue about the overall tone of this release. It's silly, fun, and there's some masterfully subtle comedy going throughout. The production is very "80s" with a big drum sound and bright tones. This record grows on you and is very enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Good Purchase I'm Liking It! 4 July 2006
By Rude Boy 1979 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After playing the Stranglers Greatest Hits and Feline CD's for about 2 years, I decided to get the whole set of releases (well as many as I could find here at amazon). I just got 10 in (the 1990 release not the remaster) and I'm very cool with it. I like Feline better but this was a great pickup for the cheap price. If this is one of their worse releases (as another reviewer wrote) I can't wait till the others that I ordered arrived! I liked 96 Tears, Let's Celebrate (thats a cool song, a happy sounding song for a party!), and I'm really liking Never To Look Back. Finally the cover art has I guess the group dressed up like some powerful international types (circa 1990) without China's leader! Whats up with that?

Wretched 8 July 2003
By Theodore Tugboat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A truly awful CD. If you feel the need to hear "96 Tears", the one high point of this effort, look for one of the greatest hits packages. Frankly though, even "96 Tears" hasn't aged well.
The Stranglers were clearly running on fumes with this one. Steer clear.
