Heroes on this album though!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No More Heroes (Audio CD)
The Stranglers released two albums in 1977, both of which had a plethora of tunes full of dark energy, musical genius and humour. Rattus Norvegicus tested the water, and once they got away with that, they recorded this album without fear.
EVERYONE knows the title track, but there are plenty of other great songs here. Growling bass, thumping drums, swirling keyboards and harsh guitar all meld into a complex sound that wraps itself around your head with ease.
If you're easily offended by such topics as an elderly school mam dying from an orgasm induced by watching teacher/pupil sex on CCTV, then this is not for you, but if you like to hear your speakers rattle and want some good, solid songs that sound fresh everytime you pull this album out then buy it. It's a classic!
