Among all of the Stranglers compilations on the market, PEACHES: THE VERY BEST OF THE STRANGLERS is probably the finest. At 20 tracks, PEACHES doesn't skimp on material, packing plenty of the British band's sometimes moody, sometimes boisterous rock onto one disc. The Stranglers rose to prominence during the punk movement, but while their music is characterized by a raw edginess and a flair for crude overtures and entendres, their early style is rooted more in pub rock (with a decidedly 1960s psychedelic flavor, courtesy of the group's knack for Doors-esque keyboards). The band's later sound fits nicely with the British electro-pop scene of the early '80s.
Yet the Stranglers unify these disparate elements into a surprisingly cohesive, distinctive style that they successfully sustained over the years, as their remarkable string of UK hit singles attests. PEACHES collects these hits--including the leering title track, the driving "No More Heroes," the dreamy "Golden Brown," and the enigmatically tender "Strange Little Girl"--alongside a handful of covers, including a revved-up version of Burt Bacharach's "Walk On By" and the Kinks' "All Day and All of the Night." As a career overview and an introduction to the Stranglers, this collection is a high point in the band's catalogue.
