"Surprisingly for a good value hits package the LP only got to number 12 in the charts. Perhaps EMI didn't really get behind it given the circumstances which seems a shame since it contains some of the best music in my collection."
"... the bass work of Jean-Jacques "JJ" Burnel stood out from the outset, especially on what critics claim to be the best track on the album, "Nice N' Sleazy". It's high in the mix, funky as hell and attracts me like a moth to a torch."
"Here for all intents and purposes is an established artist on a creative high, and as fresh in outlook as in those ’70s and ’80s heydays. And while the voice brings Lou Reed to mind at key points, there are parallels with David Bowie’s 2013 successful return The Next Day and its own self-titled intro."
"Although not as well received by the band it still gave The Stranglers another top-ten hit, finally peaking at number four. Brave and intelligent, Feline is a very good album in the pantheon of Stranglers recordings and full of surprises. An album that still deserves the respect it is due."
"True to their usual approach of not dwelling on a style ad nauseam, The Stranglers have once again produced a unique album in Giants that draws from a myriad of styles including, but not limited to Punk, Tango, the Blues, Country, and even Metal."
