Good record. Yes/no?
One of the best albums to come from a Britpop era band
it's absolutely ridiculous. in a good way.
interesting fact: the bass player does play on any of the album.
"does" makes for a less interesting fact.
Spill the beans...
i think he was just rubbish.
there was a video linked from the aforementioned blog of paul draper recording a six b side where he just slagged of the bassist for three minutes.
Stove (bassist) nicked a load of the band's money - not surprising Draper isn't a fan.
He wasn't a great bassist either.
One of my favourite albums ever.
although my emotional attachment is more with their debut attack of the grey lantern. I'm mates with Paul Draper on faceache:D
Any music coming? Will they ever reform?
i love this album
Absolutely insane but mostly amazing. Cancer is one of the best songs ever.
There's certainly some really good stuff on there, and you certainly can't fault it for ambition, but a fair portion of it is knuckle-suckingly awful. And that cover! It makes Marillion look understated.
For me, Attack Of The Grey Lantern is miles better (and has the added bonus of being listenable from beginning to end)
it's all there.
it's a lot more complex even that it sounded at the time.
