  1. Feline

    Feline was the seventh studio album by The Stranglers and was released in the new year of 1983. The first edition came with a free one-sided 7" single "Aural Sculpture Manifesto". Feline drew heavily on two of the dominant musical influences in Europe of the time, by using only acoustic guitars and electronic drums. Whilst Feline was critically acclaimed, it was not the commercial success it was hoped to be and fell way short of the previous studio album, La Folie. However, Feline peaked higher than La Folie in the UK Albums Chart. Although not especially well regarded in Britain, it brought them considerable success in the rest of Europe. There were three singles released from "Feline" - The first was "European Female" which reached No. 9 in the UK Singles Chart in January 1983, and was followed by a remixed 7" version of "Midnight Summer Dream" in March. The third and final single released was "Paradise" which reached No. 48 in the UK Chart.
