Phoebe's take on one of the best stranglers albums
Phoebe Rush | Baltimore | 08/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After working in a record store for 6 years and coming from a family of musicians and music lovers alike I thought I had heard
a great deal of good music,and then I discoverd this cd.
Meninblack is one of the most innovative albims I have ever heard. Apparently when it was released in '81 it garnerd little fanfare and no 'hits'- not suprising, it was way ahead of it's time.Forget Tangerine Dream- this album pioneered techno while still being very much a rock album. The more I listen to it the more I love it,a must have for fans of Talking Heads,Gang of Four,Devo etc., notable tracks:'It's Like Nothing on Earth','Waiting for the Men in Black',and 'Manna Machine' which listens like a distant stare into space."
One of the best of the 'New Wave"
Paul Wilczynski | Sacramento, CA USA | 04/22/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was one of the albums that got me through high school... DEFINITELY a 'desert island disc'. Just heard it again for the first time in 10 years. Better than I remembered! HIGHLY recommended. Possibly the greatest concept album ever made."
Favorite Stranglers record
Dave Portola | the airport | 11/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Been listening to this one for many years, never tire of it, always something new to hear. They conjure it all on this record with intensity and restraint. The songs are brilliant in a framework of their own, rather than any sort of "hook laden" pop/rock or punk style. The musicianship is masterful, almost neurotically precise drums and bass and lots of keyboard jumping around. The guitar playing is just insane, especially on tracks like "Nothing on Earth". Hugh delivers the vocals totally deadpan with at times a sort of fake east-european accent. Intro. track features chipmunk-like creepy aliens laughing at the plight of humanity (I suppose)."
