More Specials is an October 1980 album from the ska band The Specials. The album was the band's second, after Specials, and expanded the group's 2 tone sound to include lounge music and other influences.

    This album might be as good as the first. It is EXTREMELY different, granted. It's not as 'fun' as the debut; it's darker, and a lot more experimental and eclectic (I can hear lounge, calypso, jazz, funk, and muzak (heh) mixed into that ska/reggae base), but they pull it off brilliantly. Just makes me respect The Specials even more.

    a TERRIBLE disappointment after their storming debut album, Jerry Dammers interest in muzak leads to an collection of lift music!!! I binned my copy, but still love their earlier work.
