1980’s Argybargy was well and truly where Squeeze started getting their shit together, as it contained both classic singles and classic album cuts all the while showing off Difford and Tilbrook’s ever-sharpening songwriting craft.
That said, because it was 1980 after all, Argybargy didn’t sound that different from a lot of other “new wave” bands — usually it was the vocals that would define the difference to outsiders — so the best songs where the ones where the songwriting craft was the sharpest. Which, duh.
