nearly quit around that time,patchy album with some good songs but also the worst Stranglers song ever IMHO the dire "Miss you",my god they had

got to a low point around that time.
I think it's a better record than Giants, myself.
Not saying anything about Giants or a certain other thing :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: . Sad news about Andy Gill though .
All quiet ..........

I quite liked the modern production on WIR by Andy Gill. I Wasn't too keen on a couple of the songs though.
My thoughts exactly - and totally much better than Suite and expecially Giants
Really? oh well we must be hearing a different album,but opinions are great.

Interesting article here and one of the new tracks is on Spotify (sounding very nice indeed it has to be said)

It'll be interesting to see the outcome of this, it certainly sounds like he could have been an early victim of coronavirus.
