Sweets From A Stranger

Sweets From A Stranger by Squeeze
Released: Jan 1982
Label: A&M
Their previous album, East Side Story, remains the finest of their career. This one shows the strain of trying to top it while Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook were experiencing a strained relationship with fame, foreign substances and each other. Still, it's hard to complain when you have a boatload of decent tunes and a couple of all-time classics -- the fantastic anthem "I've Returned," the wonderfully bittersweet "Black Coffee in Bed" and the oddly ignored "When the Hangover Strikes," a sophisticated supper-club ballad. Squeeze were set to explode in America -- and, of course, they broke up.
