Background:  Released in 1978, Black and White was the third album by the Stranglers.

The album reached #2 on the UK album chart but did not chart in the U.S. gave Black and White this review:

Of the first three Stranglers albums, Black & White is arguably the weakest, yet it still has some absolutely stunning moments. For example, the epic “Toiler on the Sea” picks up where “Down in the Sewer” and “School Mam” left off on the band’s two previous efforts. Ignore the fact that it’s a concept album (it has a black side, and a white side, see) and that there are a couple of slightly ill-judged efforts (“In the Shadows” is plain silly, “Outside Tokyo” is whimsical rubbish), and let the rest of the album burn through your speakers.
