My favourite record for a long time,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Black Album (Audio CD)
Sadly this is not available as it originally was as a double album with the full length "Curtain Call" and a live side with a great version of "Love Song". However, the album shows a lot more maturity and really lets Captain Sensible's nusical talents shine through, particularly in the arrangements - for example "Silly Kids' Games" for the vocals or the instrumentation in "History of the World". And although a bit of a rehash of "Love Song", when "Therapy" kicks in I can remember the urgency that got me excited about them in the first place. Whilst some maintain "Machine Gun Etiquette" is the Damned's finest moment, I beg to differ...
