Squeeze's third album and undeniable breakthrough, "Argybargy" has since been acknowledged as a classic of new wave and features multiple of the band's most famous songs. The opener summarizes a lot of the great things about this record. "Pulling Mussels" is a jaw dropping slice of British kitchen sink drama with some genius songwriting. The album doesn't stay in one place; it's fidgety and crackling with colors, exploding into life as one of the haunting impressions of "Argybargy" is it's vivid sparkle. The record includes a lot of remarkably upbeat tunes, although they're diminished appropriately by the Squeezers' pessimistic sense of humor. But it was clear that Squeeze were at the top of the pack among new wave popstars, and that their scornful yet lively voice was unique among any pop group before or since.
