Yeah it's alright. Love the Captain wig out on Dark Asteriod. Diamonds is probably my fave - it has a feel of Strawberries about it - which is never a bad thing - Gawd bless em!!

Wasn't massively keen when it came out but revisiting it today was enjoyable. Think I prefer it to their latest effort.

Still enjoy this album and it's a shame it gets a bit overlooked these days. Surprise grower over the past few years was "Just Hangin'". Great track.

I think there's a little bit too much filler on there like "Nothing" and "Little Miss Disaster".

At The Albert Hall, they opened with "Natures Dark Passion", at the time i thought to myself whats this song then? thought i knew everything by them, it's an ok album, "Dark Asteroid" is the best song on the album.

New song Black In The Night here:

The Damned make more interesting music than The Stranglers in recent years.
Wish the new Stranglers album will be as good as the latest studio album of The Damned Evil Spiritus (2018).

The beginning sounds like the Stranglers. Sounds good! Have they got another album coming out then?
