“The Gospel According To The Meninblack” by The Stranglers - album review

TJR says

With last years “The Raven” they took a bit of a backwards step in my affections and the follow-up, delivered in February, 1981, continues the downward trend alarmingly and comes complete with smurfs-like vocals to 'enhance' the concept affair; we're to imagine that men in black suits from another planet are coming to take us away, ha-ha hee-hee ho-ho. They sound like a poor man's Devo on this one and, whilst it's not a terrible album by any means, by Stranglers standards it's a disappointment. That's heroin for you.
