Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 332/500!
Shoot Out the Lights is the final album for the then husband & wife duo.
Combine Linda's clear and beautiful vocals with Richard's outstanding guitar, as
well as excellent songwriting, and you have an album well worth the price.
"The British folk-rock duo's last album together is a harrowing portrait of a marriage gone bad, made as their own marriage collapsed. The catchiest song is called "Wall of Death." They agreed to tour, and audiences got to see Linda attack Richard onstage." - www.rollingstone.com
