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

4.0 out of 5 stars Stranglers 28 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Quite good, but I wish their were more early stuff & more tracks. Could have done with supplying the lyrics as well as this is always useful. My wife liked it better than I did because she liked the later softer tracks!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great compilation of a much under-rated band 14 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
I feel that the Stranglers have had a rough time of it in the punk / new wave nostalgia industry and cannot really understand why. Perhaps it's the fact that that they have never split up - OK Hugh left in '91 and there have have been several personnel changes since but the core has never varied - so there has never been the much-hyped reunion tour and subsequent remastering sales pitch to raise their profile. They have just continued to tour and play and do what comes naturally to them.

Anyway be that as it may, I once heard the Stranglers described as the musicians of punk, to the Damned's Jokers, the Clash's politicians and the Sex Pistol's hate figures; and I would at least agree that the Stranglers were the better musically from the off. And the songs on this compilation show this off brilliantly - OK so they get a little cabaret-ish with the brass section coming in near the end of this selection, and they were not initially the strongest lyrically (No More Heroes and Peaches being perhaps the worst offenders) but for me Strange Little Girl is still one of the best and most haunting songs ever, Something better Change is dark and brooding, All Day and All of the Night a great cover of a great song.

All-in-all a great compilation of a much under-rated band who deserve more recognition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! 1 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a totally brilliant album of the best of chart hits for those years. You simply forget how good they actually were. It was wonderful to sit back and listen to all their major hits again. It reminds you how talented this band really were. I would thoroughly recommend this album even if you can only remember a few of the hits as the rest will come back to you when you play it. Fantastic, really fantastic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mandy mo 30 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this cd for one reason only- Golden Brown. I just love the music. When I got it I'd forgotten about another couple of tracks, so I really was quite chuffed. It brought back a few memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars The garage revival began here 29 May 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Because of the times they sprang from the Stranglers were always known as punk but really they were closer to the Animals or even Slade.
I don't think they had much of an American career but slotted in straight away to both the 60s garage band and the garage revivalists like the Flamin' Groovies.
But if punk means musically deficient like the Sex Pistols or Sham 69 then no way
At least that's how I see it

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection 27 Nov 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a welcome retrospective stretching from their punk heyday (Something Better Change & No More Heroes with its lovely Doors-like organ) down to the more mellow and experimental 80s classics (Golden Brown with its beautiful harpsichord & the amazing Skin Deep, a hypnotic tune with a vaguely eerie feel). Throughout their career, The Stranglers successfully mastered various styles, from aggro rock to gentle ballads. Somehow the album is not entirely satisfying. Songs like Walk On By and 96 Tears didn't age at all well and where's that anthem of aggro Five Minutes? Gripes aside, this I still a proud collection of songs from one of Britain's finest. Another compilation is The Collection 1977 - 1982, which focuses on their early period.

I thought i would like to travel back a bit, but got a bit too sentimental about the past. I found the album disappointing, infact gave it away after one play. Read more
