Wha'ppen Well their early fans might ask, but The English Beat were growing up fast, and for every member of the Two Tone army that bemoaned the lack of punk fire found here, they enlisted a new recruit taken with their maturing sounds and more diverse stylings. The album's taster Drowning, coupled with another album track All Out to Get You, may have disappointed chartwise, barely breaking into the Top 25, but it did not reflect the fate of the full-length, which soared to Number Three. The Beat 2. Wha'ppen LP, Album. Go-Feet Records, Go-Feet Records. I'd like to give this closer to 3. 5 out of 5. It's not a bad album by any means, but it just doesn't live up to the tremendous standard set by their debut and their final LP, Special Beat Service. This sophomore LP suffers a bit from lesser songwriting I Am Your Flag could be a Haircut 100 outtake with overly earnest lyrics. Wha'ppen, 1981. Doors of Your Heart, 03:46.
