Freedom's a chain,
This review is from: Black And White (MP3 Download)
I've always loved this album, ever since it came out in 1978. Great collection of songs. Admittedly it could have done without "In The Shadows" (already released so a bit of a con) and "Enough Time" can drag a bit when you're sober, but for me there is nothing to touch one track - "Curfew" still makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck 30+ years later. The time signature changes, the incredible mini-moog riff during the verses, Greenfield and Cornwell's harmony sung choruses in total contrast to Burnel's screamed statements and the final crashing, clanging four chords, the heaviest they ever got, even more than the previous year's "5 Minutes" and that's saying something. Buy it.

Curfew does it for me to. My two songs always at the top of any Stranglers show are Summat outta Nowt and Curfew. Curfew always just shades it.
