Terrible predictable sax riffs on it, the sort you can throw into any 'ska' song. Doesn't compare to the original line-up playing the song live

Ronan, I know what you mean about the sax. I also thought 'The Whisper' was very 'poppy' when they played it in Belfast.

However, I think Neil Pyzer is very influential in the sound of the band. The first 3 albums this variation released got better each time. Made In Britain was decent, String Theory was better and Subculture was excellent, in my opinion, their 2nd best album behind Celebrate The Bullet. Daylight didn't quite hit the heights of Subculture, but was better than the previous 2 albums and better than anything that Selecter Mk11 released.

I'll take 'poppy' or 'ska by numbers' sax in certain tracks if they keep releasing quality albums, and I definitely welcome any songs off Celebrate The Bullet as it is so overlooked when they play live. I'd love a 40th Anniversary play through of the whole album!

Check out Neil Pyzer's ska tracks on YouTube, there are about 8 of them and they're well worth a listen.
