It is better than I was expecting, but wouldn't consider it to be worthy of being a single, more of an album track.

If this was from a Specials album from back in the day - I would put it on 'In Th ...

I always thought that The Beatles 'Free as a Bird' and 'Real Love' projects were something which should have been left undone. I didn't see any point in them whatsoever. The results were pretty piss ...

Took a few listens but I really like it.

Very cool and assured vibe.

Great teaser for the LP.

Only negative I can see is that at 5 minutes long it may not get the radio plays.

I'm feeling ...

It is bad need of Neville's vocals.

And if my ears don't device me that intro owes a lot to Ghost Town.

I like Blur's version and I hear The Specials influence in a few of their songs. But it lacks that certain 'thing' Brad gave to it.

Lucozade always reminds me of being at home, feigning illness to ...

I had forgotten how good that version of Nite Klub was. Not that it was needed, but Terry offers up a reminder that The Specials were indeed the sum of their various parts.

Is that an old style b ...

I get the feeling that this is how February’s album might sound: an acceptable Terry Hall album with the occasional offering of the offbeat.

It's good to see these previews. Yet coming from an era where reviews generally came out a week or so prior to release, or on the date itself, at the same time it's a little odd to have so much inform ...

I am excited as it is The Specials. I've followed them for almost 40 years and it's been a brilliant 40 years. But for me it just isn't THE Specials as was. The band is more than just a name and it ...

I will reserve judgement on it. May be they will pull the rabbit out of the hat and give us an album worthy of the name, but since the person who made the Specials sound they way they did is not invo ...

IF the Ten Commandments is a cover of the Prince Buster classic it will be interesting to see what the take on the lyrics will be.

I always thought the first Clash album was very hit and miss. The US version of it was a much better album.

I'm not sure. If you tour under the name "The Specials" and you give out live CDs to Sunday Times readers and bring out t-shirts and DVDs you could probably get away with putting out an album feat ...

Odd that there's been no official announcement.
