While the track list looks a little too heavy on the later years but generally pretty good, the early tracks included on The Stranglers Anthology
are mostly live and recorded with vocalist Paul Roberts
, who replaced keystone member Hugh Cornwell
, and Roberts
' swagger is less rough/more cool than Cornwell
's. This is a repackaging of 2003's Gold Collection
, with the picture of Cornwell
taken off the back cover.
