I bought this when it first came out back in 82, and the scratch n sniff strawberry insert STILL smells of strawberries to this day!
Oh yeah, and the music is still as blinding as it ever was....probably their best album! It’s my favourite.

If only I had known how great this record is I would have bought it decades earlier... just got it some weeks ago and listen to it nearly every day. But I guess I would have hated it at the age of 17, now I'm loving it at 47.

On a musical level this is their best album IMO

“Damned Damned Damned” may have changed lives back then (mine being one) but who can really listen to it today? Being an icon and being a good piece of music are not the same things. The punk stuff has faded and dated, best left in history books and museums, whereas Strawberries’ clever mix of ‘60s psychedelia and power-pop still sounds fresh today. Lot of Barrett and Strawberry Alarm Clock vibes here and yet it all sounds curiously timeless, never pastiche; the only thing that might date it somewhat is the angry polemic of Bad Time For Bonzo but even that’s done so tastefully that one barely notices

When Strawberries came out (I bought it at the time) it created huge controversy among the punk fraternity who didn't understand it and couldn’t move on from Smash It Up etc; in fact that’s actually where the title comes from. When gigging the newer material prior to the release the reaction was so negative from the fans that at one point Vanian was exasperated enough to say to the crowd “it’s like giving strawberries to pigs”.

My only complaint was that the scratch and sniff card was of the strawberries instead of the pig. A true landmark for the Damned

Back in 1982 i couldn't understand. We were all between hardcore and goth. What's this kind of music? Neither electro dark nor neo psychedelic.. yes I secretely liked it, but in those years i'd never sayd that this was for sure the best album never done by the Damned during their long carrier.. It's simply rock and roll! They gave us strawberries but we were too pigs to appreciate.. I hope some young guys could hear this record and love it. A r'n'r masterpiece!

Actually, it is an inner sleeve, not a lyric sheet.

"Strawberries" is arguably the band's strongest album from the early 80s. Side One bristles with classic kinetic pop vis a vis "Ignite" and "Generals" while Side Two showcases the band's flair for subtlety as heard in the reflective calm of "Life Goes On" and boozy psychedelic flavor of "Under the Floor Again." This album is chock full of should-have-been monster hits and is a must for any Damned fan with a sweet tooth for top-shelf power pop.
