The Stranglers – Dark Matters : un superbe adieu à l’ami Dave Greenfield
"Le 18ème album de nos vétérans préférés du punk anglais original, The Stranglers, risque d’être leur dernier du fait de la disparition de Dave Greenfield. Profitons donc tant que nous le pouvons de ces chansons souvent superbes, où le groupe n’hésite pas à explorer de nouveaux territoires."
The Stranglers' Dark Matters: King of the keys bows out on a high
"In all, it's an impressive testimony from a combo who always ploughed their own furrow."
Could just as easily be a parting gift or the start of something new
"The Stranglers have been around for a while, but Dark Matters is their first studio effort in almost a decade. With nine years separating this album from 2012’s Giants, it’s the longest gap they’ve had between albums in a career that’s approaching fifty years."
Review: The Stranglers – Dark Matters
"It’s hard to believe that almost ten years have passed since The Stranglers last entered the studio to lay down new material. 2012’s ‘GIANTS’ was the last offering and, since then, a great deal has happened both on and off the pitch, as you might say."
MATTERS OF FACT
"One thing that did strike me upon listening to this album is how it subtly picks up on themes and ideas from across all the different eras of the band. It’s very clever, and the more you listen, the more you pick up on some of these little nuances and characteristics within the songs."
