The Stranglers: Giants
"New album Giants not only confirms that feeling but announces The Stranglers have returned to being again a fiercely formidable band that easily can fire up the heart."
"With a tour, shooting a film in Spain and a new book in the works, time is a commodity for Cornwell."
Life as a Strangler
""We've been able to explore different avenues, some more successful than others. There's quite a variety in the material. If look at 'No More Heroes' and 'Golden Brown' there's no comparison. You'd think it's a different band."

Album Review: The Stranglers – Giants
"The combination is lacking in fanciness but for what The Stranglers lack in interesting complexity they make up for with an array of songs which are, by and large, excellently varied."
The Stranglers – Giants
"... Giants often sounds more like four session musicians engaging in half-hearted pastiche than a serious attempt to pursue new directions"
The Stranglers - Giants Review
"Baz Warne delivers a snarling performance that is a benchmark of how punk should sound in 2012. The storytelling of a road trip is thrown about with the vengeance and disdain that makes The Stranglers’ continued musical journey a fulfilling one."
