There's something irresistible about the sight of a grizzled 60-year-old man making scrappy, pared-down, punk-inflected power pop, especially when he's doing it as part of a no-frills trio. Hugh Cornwell, former leader of the legendary Stranglers, has never really gone away, but those who may have lost track of him since the Stranglers split have a great opportunity to remake their acquaintance with him on this very fine album.
