Back in 85 i found it far too "clean" but now i really enjoyed it, Dave's keys on Ice Queen, Hugh's voice, it's great! Still think Mad Hatter, Punch & Judy, Spain and Uptown are among the worst stranglers tracks ever.
uptowns great!

"Spain" is a very clever song. Listen to the vocals and read them from the inner sleave at the same time. Great lyric homework was done here as well as some super music. When it was in the set, the audience loved its live variation too.

I always thought the band were eating smoked salmon sandwiches and drinking fine Rioja when they wrote this little gem. :lol:

I can still remember the shock I felt when I stuck AS on my turntable on it's day of relese and heard for the first time the Sally Army band sneak onto Ice Queen. My first reaction was to return it to the record shop forthwith, demanding a refund as there appeared to be a horn section all over my new Stranglers album.
