English Beat / I Just Cant Stop

Rating A+

RELEASED: 1980

This release by the second wave revivalists, comes close as any to an example of a perfection. They combine almost every genre here that spans from the attitude of Punk to legacy of Desmond Decker, which in a whole is a collective feast . Bouncing from of-the-time political messages to rumbustious love songs, the themes flow continuously from one to another. Mirror in the Bathroom and Cant get used to losing you become instant staples on any playlist with their deliberate  but anxious early 80’s sound. My favorite on here is the one track combo of Whine & Grine/Stand Down Margret   Roger streamlines his lyrics of a cool loove song to the demise of British law and the resignation of Margret Thatcher. For those who are fans of upbeat reggae/ska sound of bands like Streetlight Manifesto then this is a must have.
