Love JJ"s reflective lyrics on Lines and Down. Baz has come into his own on this album. Superb vocal delivery. And his songs are the best imho. Love the album. Peace out x
with you. Love it.

I assumed Baz wrote lines?

If not, what did he write?

As I understand JJ did. It references his life and note the use of the "french" papa... I think he said that Baz just sings it better.

I think it’s JJ music and joint lyrics (based upon what they say here)

Agree, still loving this album and listening regularly, it’s immediate appeal hasn’t faded at all. My favourites are No Man’s Land (which I think will be great live) and Breathe, but I think the album is another Stranglers masterpiece.

It's certainly a really good album, I'm still enjoying it after quite a long time after release, I think Baz is doing some great under stated Guitar parts, he dominated a bit to much on Giants IMHO. Lt Kudu.

I’m hoping by some miracle we will get more releases of other new songs soon even if it’s not enough for a whole album if not that it’s got to be some solo material from jj I still cannot get into Dark Matters I’m totally indifferent to it

Thirded. Still getting mileage out of it and Breathe is a fantastic song.
Never say goodbye,
For we'll all be with you someday,
Fond adieus but never say goodbye
