Burnel took time out from The Stranglers to fly out to Japan at short notice and join ARB to cover the tour, including appearing at the 'All Japan Rock Festival' at Hibaya park, becoming the first non-Japanese to ever appear at the festival. In , one of the Stranglers' two managers advised them to break up as he felt that the band had lost direction, but this idea was dismissed and they parted company with their then current management team.
Later that year the Stranglers released The Raven , which heralded a transition towards a more melodic and complex sound which appealed more to the album than the singles market. The songs on The Raven are multi-layered and musically complicated, and deal with such subjects as a Viking 's lonely voyage, heroin addiction, genetic engineering, contemporary political events in Iran and Australia and extraterrestrial visitors, "The Meninblack".
The Raven saw a definite transition in the band's sound. The Hohner Cembalet — so prominent on the previous three albums — was dropped and Oberheim synthesizers were deployed on most tracks. The Raven was not released in the US; instead a compilation album The Stranglers IV was released in , containing a selection of tracks from The Raven and a mix of earlier and later non-album tracks.
The Raven sold well, reaching No. The Police hit No. A inch single, the band's first, containing extended mixes of both tracks was also released, but "Bear Cage" also only managed No.

It was preceded by a single "Who Wants the World", which didn't appear on the album, and only just made the top The Gospel According to The Meninblack was very different from their earlier work and alienated many fans. After a slow start, the Stranglers recovered their commercial and critical status with La Folie which was another concept album, this time exploring the subject of love.
However, the next single was " Golden Brown ". The song is an evocative waltz-time ballad, with an extra beat in the fourth bar.
Cornwell said the lyrics were "about heroin and also about a girl. She was of Mediterranian origin and her skin was golden brown. It was also named as "record of the week" on BBC Radio 2 , despite the station not previously playing music associated with the punk genre. It remains a radio staple to this day. Following this success, La Folie recharted at No. Shortly afterwards the Stranglers left EMI.
As part of their severance deal, The Stranglers were forced to release a greatest hits collection, The Collection — It became a hit, charting at No. Following the Stranglers' return to commercial success, many record companies lined up to sign them. And if Americans follow his example, then we can face up to the problem of drinking and driving, and we can, in Michael's words, 'Beat It'.
Frequently listed in greatest song polling lists, "Beat It" was ranked as the world's fourth favorite song in a poll conducted by Sony Ericsson. The song also appeared in the music game, Guitar Hero World Tour , as the last song in the vocal career. Notably, in this game, the vocalist will perform the same dance routine performed by Jackson on the video and live performances when singing the final verse.

Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone claimed that the song was a "contender for the year's most pointless musical moment". The studio version was digitally released on March 25, by Island Records as the only single from the band's first live album, Live in Phoenix The song features a guitar solo by John Mayer , which was performed by Eddie Van Halen in the original song. In the United States, the song peaked at No. The band has since regularly incorporated it in their set list at their shows.
It also charted at No. There are specific images that are reference points for us, but at any given point, it's not any of his videos.
