"Giant's" if people hate the lyric's that much.Give the band a break.Maybe they should just play all of "Rattus" on the upcoming tour over and over,people might be happy then?
Seconded.

I don't know about good or not, but it's instantly recognisable, whereas about half of the above lyrics are not.

That said, I agree with Greatkudu that Giants is a fine album.

Let's face it they have hardly been poets throughout their entire career despite one or two great lyrical moments.

My favourite oddball lyric is the one with just one word – a word that doesn't even exist. Ladies and gentlemen
I give you Pawsher.....
They'll be called the survivors..you know why?....cos they're gonna survive

First one that jumped to mind when I saw the thread title was that "crackle and fizz" bollocks.
AND all the bollocks that went with it - ie the "music " :grin: .
Its only when you read the above ( lyrics ) on , I have 16 better Stranglers albums to choose fromthe vote bit that you realise just how bad some are. I don't listen to Giants at all these days , I have 16 better albums by the band to choose from and I gave up trying on this 2 years ago - I wanted to like it , but just find I can't . Total opposite to WIR where I didn't like and didn't try , then after Giants I listened to WIR and found it listenable , so Giants did do something for me - it made WIR sound good :grin: .
A badly recorded and written album IMO , a lack of idea's unfortunately . I think quality control went AWOL here - a blot on their career . Paul is needed back .
