I'm sure they put on crowd pleasing live shows but has anyone member of UB40 released any great records in the last 20 years or so? I just felt they ran out of ideas a long time ago and don't have anything left to say

That just bought sums it up.

Present Arms is one of the great albums of that era, but it was downhill from there. And at a very alarming rate.

I love this song, 'Don't Break My Heart' which is from the mid 80s

From the 2nd Labour of Love album (from 89) I like their versions of Wear You To the Ball.
But from 1990 onward.....?

I liked Signing Off, Present arms and The first Labour of love album. There are a few tracks on their other albums that stand out, but they have recorded some right crap over recent years.
