Spectre Of Love is the one I keep coming back to these days.

"She's Slipping Away" is currently top of the Dog's Bollocks hit parade and is likely to remain there for a while.

Summat's my choice. It actually sounds like the Stranglers back when they were in top form.

After that....

Spectre
Relentless
Unbroken (would be no. 1 or 2 if the lyrics were a bit better)
Barbara
Hate you
Anything
Slipping
Bless you
Soldier
See me coming

Hard to hammer it out precisely, I still like most of the ones toward the bottom.

Still think that Suite XVI isn't as good as NC. The writing is a bit unadventurous in places. However it's still a fine album.

Unbroken - Still my favourite track.
Spectre - has its critics, but I think it sounds like a proper Stranglers song
She's slipping away - I think it's over-rated, a bit AOR (if anyone remembers that term). Verse is good, but chorus is bland.
Summat - my 2nd fave, it gets away with lack of melody in the verse due to the chorus (plus it has the bonus of a JJ solo)
Anything can Happen - liked a lot at first (better than the comparitive Dutch Moon on NC) but I'm losing interest - rules rhyming with fools is too cliched a lyric)
See me Coming - I think this is better than most give it credit, although I agree the E-D-M-O-N-D bit doesn't wotk out of context.
Bless You - has grown on me. A fine song, but the Mark Knoffler guitars at the end are lame, the song needed a stronger finish.
Soldiers Diary - Excellent stuff - sod these slow/quiet songs!
Barbara - in similar style to Slipping Away but much better. Stronger chorus. Rubbish title though.
I Hate You. - OK for a laugh. Thought it would be quickly tiresome, but I still enjoy it. I thought it went down best of the new tracks at Glasgow ABC.
Relentless- Good track, but over-rated. The bridge section is great (Particularly DG's keyboards, which were lost live) but the chorus isn't as strong.

All in all, a good album but I think NC had more punch. It maybe tries to cover too many styles?

Still, I hope they bring more tracks (eg Soldiers Diary) into the live set for the French tour!

Favourite song on 16

Most of this album hits the spot, however "Relentless" by a mile followed by "Bless You" and "Unbroken" :grin:

I remember now why I didn't vote..... No Relentless! :twisted:

Spectre of Love is, to me, like Thrown Away..... Often skipped on the album but 'live'..... 8) 8) 8)
