Of the first three Stranglers albums, Black & White is arguably the weakest, yet it still has some absolutely stunning moments. For example, the epic "Toiler on the Sea" picks up where "Down in the Sewer" and "School Mam" left off on the band's two previous efforts

After Black and White, The Stranglers would leave their punk and their pub-rock roots behind forever, embracing the keyboard-led pop of the 1980s with aplomb (but not before recording their iciest album, the confidently fantastic The Raven).

No More Heroes is the second studio album by English new wave band the Stranglers. It was released on 23 September 1977, through record label United Artists, five months after their debut album, Rattus Norvegicus. No More Heroes was produced by Martin Rushent. The album consists of new material with three songs left over from the Rattus Norvegicus sessions ("Something Better Change", "Bitching" and "Peasant in the Big Shitty").

Black and White is The Stranglers third studio album and was recorded within 18 months of their debut Rattus Norvegicus. Produced by Martin Rushent and engineered by Alan Winstanley, the album is divided into the Black side and White side, each nominally characterised by the style and mood of the songs which they contain. This release sees The Stranglers adopting a more experimental approach to song structures and time signatures (for example, "Curfew" features 7/4 time).

Two and a half fucking stars for this brilliant slab of vinyl is absolutely pathetic. Black and White is a melodic, clever, blistering assault covering all sorts of harmonic and lyrical territory, physical and metaphysical. Aside from the music, it features one of the greatest album covers of all time, perfectly capturing the menace and dissolution pictured within. Toiler On the Sea, Tank, All's Quiet On the Eastern Front, and Nice and Sleazy are the standouts, but it's a five star affair, best played at full volume. This work does not age. It's brilliant.

Totally Agree with Barry. Should be a minimum 4, all the first 3 should be 4.5 at least, Rattus 5. To quote this (usually) wonderful website ""No More Heroes," the driving title track to the Stranglers' second album, was another huge hit, although the album itself was a disappointment -- recorded in a hurry, with little time to write new material, it was largely comprised of older songs that had been passed over for Rattus. Within months, a new Stranglers album was on the streets, and this time they got everything right. Black and White was previewed by the hits "Five Minutes" and "Nice'n'Sleazy" (self-mythology in a nutshell), and was swiftly followed by one of the band's finest moments, a murderously slowed-down version of Bacharach/David's "Walk on By."

Black And White is easily the Stranglers' most underrated album. While their first two legendary records, Rattus Norvegicus and No More Heroes are The Stranglers undisputed best albums, Black And White is not that far off. It completes a trilogy of three near perfect LPs. The musicianship on Black And White is absolutely stunning. JJ Burnel's bass is a raging beast, Hugh Cornwell puts in some of his best ever guitar playing, Dave Greenfield's ultra-creative keyboards are in full display and Jet Black's drumming shows how criminally unknown he is. While this album should be played in it's entirety, some of the brilliant highlights include "Tank", "Nice 'N' Sleazy", the iconic "Toiler On The Sea", "Hey! (Rise Of The Robots)", "Sweden (All Quiet On The Eastern Front)", "Curfew", the menacing "Threatened" and the great "Death And Night And Blood (Yukio)". Truly a monster record that has grown in stature over time.

This is The Strangler's greatest album - it mixes the hook driven new wave stuff with an avant guard sound and outlook. At the time it was issued it confused the hell out of the public and music press - a good sign! Really daring and bold music.

Dukinos
One of my favorite punk albums of the late 70's era!! A must for all punk - new wave fans!

Togar
2.5 stars...indeed. Too much time to think too little to do

Ignore the ill-informed and inaccurate house review of this album. Shame because this site is usually reliable and informative. Make no mistake, this album and its follow up and companion piece The Raven show this extraordinary band at the peak of its powers. Unique and mind-bending in the best possible way.

Kefym
I can't call myself a big Stranglers fan but I like 'em and I like this album more than all the others. Raw power indeed. A fine achievement from the men in black.

Anyone giving this 5 stars should get their ears checked,lol. Songs are as bad as the production work.

After the first two near perfect albums this one dips slightly , not in musical quality, it's all very urgent and well delivered. It's just that in general the songs aren't that good. There are some high points like Nice n Sleazy , Tank and Toiler but generally (and especially on extended listening) the truth will out.
