"The Stranglers are the new Christmas. Making their annual drop down Brighton's cultural chimney and having a capacity crowd of believers marvel as their fourth incarnation keeps true to the spirit and obtuse time signatures of the original four-piece."
"They knew their fans and they played exactly what they were looking for, as they smashed their hits, with extreme precision. I was amazed, as I heard ‘Peaches’ sound almost identically to the original which came out 40 years ago."

"THE Stranglers have been performing for an incredible 43 years now but the "meninblack" use this experience wisely, keeping things fresh by changing round their setlists and mixing the hits - of which there are plenty - with a variety of deeper album cuts."
"Enthusiastic was certainly the watchword for the night as they launched into Toiler on the Sea from their Men In Black opus before heading into Was It You and Sometimes, the first of several from Rattus."
"The iconic post punk outfit took to the stage and absolutely blew the crowd away for a solid hour and a half, playing as tight as any band could ever be expected to play and keeping the crowd in attendance engaged and entertained throughout."
