Jamaican music was a key component in the soundtrack that fueled English punk and its influence could be heard in everything from the Clash to P.I.L. to the Slits. Emerging simultaneously with punk and harnessing the same energy and anger was the 2-tone label, which released key records by the Specials, who founded the label, Madness, English Beat, and the Selector. Yes, ska has a lot to answer for (the horrible 90s ska-pop/ska-punk movement), but the English wave produced some great music. This is the second album by the Specials and finds them expanding their sound with generally good results. Members of the Go-Go's sing back up ("Our Lips Our Sealed" was inspired by a member of the Specials) on one song. The band would take a break after this album, with a few members forming Fun Boy Three.
