5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant songs 3 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Damned are without doubt one of the best bands to come out of the original punk movement. This is because they knew how to write great songs, from Brian James raw writing on the first 2 albums through the brilliant Machine Gun Etiquette, The Black Album and Strawberries where Captain's influence comes to the fore. On Strawberries, The Damned seemed to be at a songwriting peak and found many new fans. There really isn't a bad song on the album, maybe songs that the fans wanting a harder sound may have found too soft but for those there are songs like Ignite. However, the brilliance of songs like Stranger On The Town, Gun Fury, Badtime For Bonzo and Under The Floor Again make this album one of their best. Not as raw as Damned Damned Damned or the punk perfection of Machine Gun Etiquette (probably the best punk album ever)but in its own right a brilliant album from start to finish. Buy this album you swines!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album 17 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album when it came out on vinyl(Remember that?!!) and wasn't sure about it. Now after the passing of time it's one of my faves. There are some great tracks on it. "Ignite" and "Generals" have the bite of early Damned tracks whilst tracks like "The Dog" point the direction the band were heading. 9 Bonus tracks including the brilliant "lovely Money" (With Viv Stanshalls hilarious narrative)make this an essential purchase. An absolute gem of an album

5.0 out of 5 stars A FAR FROM FRUITLESS EXPERIENCE 15 May 2007
By Kelvin J. Dickinson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is NOT the smile of a demented circus clown. It's real. They make me laugh.

That's because they're funny, bloody funny, THE DAMNED. Always laughing themselves, always taking the piss. But underneath that shallow and occasionally stupid exterior, their grasp and mastery of the perfect pop song has for many years remained largely untouchable. STRAWBERRIES, like its brilliant predecessor, THE BLACK ALBUM, is a fine example of The Damned's underrated songwriting ability. Awash with thrashing guitars, scattergun drums, psychedelic keybords and a dynamic brass and sax section, the bi-polar vocals of DAVE VANIAN and the finely balanced harmonies of CAPTAIN SENSIBLE all converge in one big haze of exuberant showmanship. Either that, or there's some seriously gleeful arsing around going on, take your pick. Whatever the case, this album belongs in everyone's punk rock/new wave collections, the perfect antidote to some of the more po-faced product of the era; you know who you are, Mr Devoto and Ms Sioux. Truth is, whatever else is going on in my life, The Damned never fail to cheer me up.


Outstanding Bonus Track: LOVELY MONEY - fabulous, but listen out for the breathtakingly politically incorrect sidewipe at the Argentinian invasion of the Falkland Islands. A marvel of its time and, forgive me, still quite hilarious. Big Wow indeed, Viv Stanshall.

BONUS TRIVIA FACT: Both the inner sleeve and labels of the original vinyl LP were impregnated with an artificial strawberry essence - which after nearly twenty-five years CONTINUE TO SMELL FRUITY! Bless 'em.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strawberries - The Damned 1 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Strawberries, The Damned's 5th studio album captures the band in a stunning vain of creativity. From the boisterous beginning of Ignite to the beautifully sensitive Life Goes On, it's a classic

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked classic 23 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
The wider perception of The Damned is of a punk band who made simple songs. Nothing wrong with simple songs, of course, but this is a band with so much more to offer and Strawberries, along with The Black Album, shows just what fine songwriters they were. I listen to this LP (yes, on vinyl) every few years and it rewards every time. In fact, it seems to sound better as time goes by. Stranger on the Town could well be their finest moment and the whole album deserves to be much more widely appreciated.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much more than the cliched punk band! 25 April 2013
By fb61
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant album and this expanded track listing version is simply more really interesting stuff. The Damned show on 'Strawberries' that they can rock with the best of them, that they have wit, intelligence, political views and musical flexibility. While some tracks are straight ahead rockers, other tracks are more like mini rock operas with complex construction and great dynamics.

If you think they are a dumb punk band, or worse a cardboard cut-out punk pastiche, this album will change your mind! GET IT, YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!
