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

The nearest thing to a STRANGLERS 'unplugged' album.

Accoustic Spanish guitar, soft melodic bass, light swirling keyboards, er...programmed drum machine-style drums. Admittedly, from that stripped down assessment, it would be hard for anyone to imagine how good FELINE might actually be. But good it undoubtedly is. Low key, certainly, but there's a delicacy of touch that lends it an almost exotic flavour.

Recording of this album coincided, apparently, with a spell of bad luck for THE STRANGLERS, including stolen equipment and an alleged riot leading to a turn in jail for HUGH CORNWELL and the boys. Not the best of times for songwriters and it is, I believe, borne out in the music - there's a definite hint of melancholy running through the whole project. Not detrimental, but it does give FELINE a very distinctive fingerprint.

MIDNIGHT SUMMER DREAM starts the ball rolling and is a strong mid-tempo number with a mostly spoken vocal by Cornwell. And whilst I have no problem with his delivery, I think it would have benefitted from being sung throughout (my wife disagrees strongly on this one, however, so what do I know?). EUROPEAN FEMALE, the other single, is a beautifully realised effort by JEAN-JACQUES BURNEL with perfecly balanced contributions from everyone concerned; both have the lions' share of production values here.

The remaining songs are, by and large, similar in tone and ambition, but be careful; as you get sucked further into the heart of FELINE the introspection becomes slightly unnerving.

No question a great album, but one that continues to ellicit mixed feelings.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Ok, it's not exactly Rattus Norvegicus, but it is still a classic. "Midnight Summer Dream" is great song, it represents the fact that even when they're not at their best, The Stranglers remain above average. Many people seem to dislike this period of Stranglers music because it's DIFFERENT. The tunes are upbeat, and the instruments have a definite electrical sound, which is a plus. This completes the Stranglers' collection, and is well worth a listen.

'Feline' is a curious diversion, on which The Stranglers explore a never-repeated approach. Hugh Cornwell ditches electric guitar in favour of the Spanish acoustic variety, while delivering vocals that are more in the nature of philosophical tales and monologues. Synths operate the percussion and the album is aptly-titled, as the faux-Latin rhythms and reserved performances have the guile and grace of a cat. The lengthy 'Midnight Summer Dream' sets the tone for what follows, the only criticism being that the guitar and synth drum combination is a little over-used. 'Paradise' stands out for featuring Dave Greenfield's lead vocal and a more memorable melody, although 'European Female' is the obvious hit single.
As usual in this series, bonus tracks are in generous supply. 'Savage Breast' is the best item here, though the live medley is pretty good too. 'Feline' is certainly not the best Stranglers album, but it does confirm their astounding ability to keep coming up with new and inspired ideas.

Many fans identify "Feline" as marking the start of the Stranglers' creative decline and to an extent they've got a point; certainly the albums after this are nowhere near as good as the ones before (apart from possibly "Dreamtime") but "Feline" is still relatively strong. Much more laid back than the rest of the group's output, there are some genuinely fine songs on here including "Midnight Summer's Dream", "Let's Tango In Paris" and "European Female". Only the rather awkward "It's A Small World" lets it down slightly.

Format: Audio CD
I loved this album since it first came up in the early 80's, it's still sound so good after all these years. I am a huge fan of the those new wave bands that dominated all the charts across the globe in the 80's such as Duran Duran, Human League, Depeche Mode, Alphaville, Simple Minds and the list is so long! And Stranglers were among them. This album somehow is different from their early releases in the 70's, they used more synth in their songs which turned out to be so delightful. "Midnight Summer Dream" and "European Female" have a special place in my heart. In addition, this 2001 re-release adds 6 bonus songs, unfortunately Amazon did not mention in the track listing. Anyway here is the complete list:

1. Midnight Summer Dream
2. It's A Small World
3. Ships That Pass In The Night
4. European Female
5. Let's Tango In Paris
6. Paradise
7. All Roads Lead To Rome
8. Blue Sister
9. Never Say Goodbye

Bonus Tracks

10. Savage Breast
11. Pawsher
12. Permission
13. Midnight Summer Dream/European Female [Live]
14. Vladimir And Olga
15. Aural Sculpture Manifesto

I have always loved the stranglers from there new wave (punk) period in the 70s but felt they improved musically with the raven upto dreamtime....dave greenfield is one of the most underated keyboard players in history,this album shows him playing lush swaying layered synths beautifully and the extra trks are the best of all the reissues...this album is a melodic album and one of the best they did.
