It is so nice to hear the original album crystal clear without the old clicks and crackles of the vynal. How pleased I was when I found that it was included with this excellent Deluxe Edition together with Rankin' Full Stop. With a few softer love and lovelorn tracks taking some of the edge off. I just can't stop it - listening to this 3 disc set that is! That's enough of that - This edition features the original album, the 1979 2-Tone single, various mixes, John Peel sessions, a dvd and an excellent 28 page colour booklet with photos and the lyrics. These are all my faves from this album, but I like the entire album. I Just Can't Stop It was a late arrival onto the checker- boarded scene, the Specials, Madness and the Selecter had all beat the (English) Beat to the punch, but luckily this wasn't a race. The English Beat formed in Birgmingham, England in 1978, inspired by the reggae, soul, pop, and punk sounds percolating all around them in that heady time. [11] In 2003, Q ranked the song at number 517 in their list of the "1001 Best Songs Ever". Every song here is great and all of them are pretty memorable - everything about them is fantastic.

This is one of those rock classics that are timeless and goes right up there with Led Zeppelin's 1st LP, Revolver, Are you Experienced as a serious Hall Of Fame item.Play it LOUD and be prepared to start dancing. Reviewed in the United States on August 24, 2016. other groups are the specials and selector, but i've never heard selector yet. I just cant stop it was ordered, cover looks right, the songs were right, but the cd inside was Two Feet.
"Mirror in the Bathroom" is a killer, followed by more, and I'm hooked. One of these items ships sooner than the other. I remember back in the 80's when I first purchased the Two-Tone single Tears of A Clown, I fell in love with that version because I loved the original just as much.

"[11] In 1990, Robert Christgau ranked "Twist and Crawl" at number 10 in his list of the best songs of the 1980s. The album was released in 1980 via Go Feet Records in the UK. This record is not just enjoyable pop, there's a lot of power in these songs. And it was this sheer diversity of influences that set The Beat's sound apart from their compatriots.

Barnes and Jackson, who have played alongside two generations of All-Stars, will dish on the latest news and drama from on and off the court without boundaries. There was no dance, of course - the needle wouldn't stand it -, but I was definitely ready to dance. Label: I.R.S. Hard times (no change then). I'll be honest here - I used to HATE ska. Besides, the band had already primed the pump with a trio of Top 10 singles -- the double A-sided "Tears of a Clown"/"Ranking Full Stop," "Hands Off She's Mine" and "Mirror in the Bathroom," their debut album followed hard on "Mirror"'s heels, picking up the latter two songs and "Full Stop" to boot.

This one of the greatest albums of all time and these guys just seriously can flat out play. It's also very well-produced for an album that came out in 1980. The lyrics are also pretty interesting to listen to as well as catchy - "Mirror In The Bathroom" is but one of many songs that'll get stuck in your head.
