Reissue of this classic album from the British punk legends. La Folie is the sixth studio album by The Stranglers. It was released in November 1981. La Folie was a conscious attempt to deliver a more commercial product. The album's French language title literally translates to "madness". In various interviews, the band related that this referred to "The Madness of Love" and that conceptually, each of the songs on the album was intended to explore a different kind or aspect of "love".
