Best song on Ten

Post by Alexinblack »

Not as hard to pick a favorite from this album. Never to look back is the best song of the album and I'm really pleased that I have managed to hear that song live a few times. I don't mind 96 Tears, and I'm quite keen on Someone like you as well.

Hate Too Many Teardrops - ever so slightly repetitive...

Instead of This for me is stronger than anything that made the album. But despite the much discussed production issues this album has it's moments. This morning I will say Man of The Earth... Might feel different this afternoon!
Thank you very much

I think Sweet Smell is a great opener so I've gone for that. Never to look is brilliant too. Shame about everything in the middle though!

Two things you should know about "10 " ........
One - my favourite song is NTLB , secondly , the next best IMO isn't one of their own songs . The rest , though not badly written songs - just don't do it for me , they just aren't very Stranglersy , but then thats how Hugh was going back then I guess . Its my least favourite M1 album . NTLB though is an excellent song and I do their cover of 96 Tears .
All quiet ..........

Almost went with "Out Of My Mind" because the songwriting is pretty good - traditional decent English style songwriting. However, Never Too Look Back gets it.

Never Too Look Back for me as well.
Never say goodbye,
For we'll all be with you someday,

A poor album IMHO but 'Never To Look Back' is an excellent song. 8)

Rick Wakeman - "How did you deal with it?"
