All the Magazine albums are great. I even liked the one they did a few years back when they reformed.

Although pointed in a different direction I always thought their setup was the closest to The Stranglers - prominent bass, sinewy guitar and of course the organ, electric piano and analogue synth combo.

Anyone else hear shades of The Beast in this? Of course, she already has a clutch of Stranglers covers under her belt.

JJ's classical influence does come through in melodies like The Beast - I hear it too in the new track "If..."
