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 far this has been the last studio album of the stranglers mk. 2 (a new one is scheduled for early 2004) and it's quite good! For the first time since 1990 bassplayer JJ Burnel is heard singing again on this cd, on no less than five songs.
Apparently the "new" members Paul Roberts (vocals) and John Ellis (guitar) werent involved in a large part of the writing of this album and were therefor dissapointed with the result at the time. On the previous two albums (About Time and Written in Red) they were the main contributors but not too succesfull both commercially and artistically. I think it was good that the older members got behind the wheel on Coup de Grace. Songs as You Don't Think.., Jump Over My Shadow and the tongue in cheek love song Miss You are classic stranglers-songs with wonderful keyboards. God is Good is a brave but not too good attempt at techno, Known Only Unto God is a very sincere song inspired by the many gigs the band has done for British troop all over the world in recent years and especially In the End and The Light are beautiful. Too bad the title track suffers from muddy production but overall the cd is the best they did since Feline in my opinion!

For a real stranglers fan this one is a jewel. Why? Because it is no record trying to continue as if the Stranglers could continue after Hugh's leaving the same way as they did with Stranglers in the night, About Time and Written in Red. Thank You, unknown critic for having reviewed the preceded record Written in Red in one word: “Why?” Which incited JJ to compose most of the songs on this one (and to do some lead vocals for the first time after Hughs leaving). The result is a very soft, untypical and melancholic Stranglers-Album with a very special melodic beauty resembling to albums like European Cometh, The Gospel According and Un Jour parfait, where JJ had already taken a dominant part in the composing process. And concerning the lyrics, I don’t find any ideological or patriotic message here, everything is very impressive without judgement!

I'm surprised by the poor reviews, as I find the album is pretty good. Musically very interesting, and shows the band was happy to experiment. Nearly rated it five stars.

Even as much as I like The Stranglers (and I'm obsessed with the band and have been for decades, it must be said that this is their weakest effort to date). It's quite well know that this was (in theory) the album where bassist/vocalist J.J. Burnel wrested control of much of the basic songwriting from frontman Roberts and guitarist Ellis.
Despite this, 'Coupo De Grace; is not a return to form we'd expect given JJs additional input. The album is filled with lacklustre melodies, awkward, predictable and inelegant lyrics and ultimately lacks punch. HOWEVER, it is worth buying for one track alone, the excellent 'In The End', which features a sterling burnel vocal and lyric, lovely keyboards and reflective acoustic guitar: now if the rest of the album were like this, 'Coup De Grace' would have been the bext album by the band since 'Dreamtime'- the number has all the misanthropy, romanticism, regret and bleakness we love to hear from JJ at his best. So despite my negative comments, if you love The Stranglers, you'll dig this one great track if not the album.

After "Written in Red" had seemed to mark a revival in The Stranglers' fortunes, "Coup de Grace" suggested that perhaps the time had come for them to finally call it a day. Only the magnificent grunge-like title track suggested they might still have a worthwhile contribution to make. Without it, "Coup de Grace" would have been completely without merit. The rest of the album is truly awful. A real low point.

Ok, I've tried, honestly, I've really tried to like this album but after several hundred listens over the last few years I'm afraid to report that it is a stinking turkey of a record, I'm still embarassed that I have this in my collection, it really does sound like the work of a spent force. Ok, "Coup De Grace" is ok (but too slow compared to the live version), but apart from that and maybe "you don't know...", "jump over my shadow" and "in the end" the songs on this album really suck,...sheesh, the song "known only unto god" is possibly the WORST SONG EVER WRITTEN (Vera Lynn would like it,I rest my case!). This album really is the suckiest of the sucks, and that's a lot of sucks! Buy "Norfolk Coast" or "5Live01" instead! Those 2 couldn't be further removed from this one as they are great and this isn't. Simple as that. The End.
