Best song on Giants?

Half of this album I really like, Freedom, Giants, Lowlands, Mercury Rising and Time are all songs that I think are really good, I don't mind Boom Boom either. However Freedom Is Insane wins as its the the best song on the album and has that classic Stranglers sound.

Would agree, half of the album is decent the other half forgettable. :|

agree with mickinblack -freedom is insane, nothing else came close for me, only about4 songs on the album I like.
If it's not recorded ,then it's just a memory

This is like picking your favourite turd . Freedom , 15 Steps and the foreign one are good IMO , the rest filler or absolute dire .
All quiet ..........

Off the top of my head-
Fickle. Its another of those Dutch Moon/LBV Baz ones
he does so well.
...I'm making lists of all the people I love,
and all the cunts that should fuck off...

I really like Giants the album. I thinks it is pretty consistent throughout. Boom Boom is the weakest track but even that grows on you.

Time was Once on My Side. Fickle is a very close second.

Not a very good album in my opinion-Freedom wins hands down
