Performer Notes
  • LA FOLIE brings together a total of 17 remastered tracks from the prolific and musically diverse British group The Stranglers.
  • This import includes the bonus cuts "Cruel Garden," "Cocktail Nubiles," "Vietnamerica," "Love 30," You Hold The Key To My Love In Your Hands," and "Strange Little Girl," as well as new album art, thorough band info, and rare photography.
  • Unknown Contributor Role: Steve Woof.
  • La Folie is a welcome album in the Stranglers' oeuvre, mainly a collection of tight, punchy songs that often suggest the forthright approach of American new wave bands. With one exception, the songs are shorter and more pointed, harking back to the comparative conciseness of some of the tunes on the band's first two albums, Rattus Norvegicus and No More Heroes, though acidic lyrics still predominate. "Non-Stop" is a typical example, featuring a half-spoken vocal that suggests Lou Reed, a Cars-influenced organ sound, and a bouncy, dance-derived drum beat; this particular song is atypical, however, because it employs a blues-oriented progression. An interesting excursion is encountered in the song "Golden Brown," a subdued, jazz-influenced number with purring vocals, a coolly executed synthesizer/harpsichord backing texture, and a periodically stumbling beat. Only the plushly understated title track suggests the sprawl typical of the group's immediately preceding releases. This fine album is well worth purchasing. ~ David Cleary
Professional Reviews
Q (9/01, p.135) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Restored some faith thanks to 'Golden Brown' and the 6-minute title track...crooned in French...for a while they were filthy and fantastic..."

Mojo (Publisher) (8/02, p.61) - "...This mostly diverting, occasionally inspired colleciton of patented Stranglers pop salvaged the bands career..."
