"I was not really sure what to expect when I saw the cover of Giants by The Stranglers. The photo shows a set of swings with nooses hanging from it. This coupled with their name, The Stranglers, made me a bit apprehensive about what the actual tracks would be like however it was nowhere near as bad as I thought."
"Giants is driven by JJ Burnel. His signature bass lifts the 10 song set away from contemporary rock music’s endemically conservative mainstream, and his singing hasn’t been this versatile, or good, since the mid 1980s."
"Finally free from record company pressure, free from having to bother with the pointless world of the charts, free from expectation, free from any constraints the rat pack in black of the Stranglers have cut their finest album for years."
