I prefer your bottom though.
should keep me in the positive figures at least.
Probably only a 3 at best though. It's not as good as my post on the "show us your muff" thread on the music board.
My one's at the top weren't so good.
to get to the gem. Damn you!
Never heard the album though. I had the second one. It was ok.
and not even the one with Sing It Back on it
rather than the remix one that everyone knows? Or is there another album I'm not aware of?
I've never heard the album but I know that Sing it Back as it was released and featured on Things to Make it Do is a remix. The orignal's much odder.

Review by Heather Phares
The aptly named Do You Like My Tight Sweater? slinks and bounces on a funky backbone of fat basslines and innovative beats that support singer Roisin Murphy's sly, theatrical vocals and lyrics. Part catwoman, part droid, her singing ranges from a knowing purr to an androgynous growl and creates characters like party weirdos, dominatrixes, killer bunnies, and ghosts. As dramatic as her vocals are, however, Murphy is an antidiva; her musical surroundings equal her singing in importance. The other half of Do You Like My Tight Sweater?'s individuality comes from Mark Brydon's arrangements, which combine fluid tempos, sudden breakbeats, witty sound effects, and unearthly keyboards in sci-fi grooves that appeal to the brain and body. Standout tracks like "Fun for Me," "I Can't Help Myself," "Lotus Eaters," and "Party Weirdo" mix sensuality, technology, funk, and electronica in a unique and stylish blend. While some of the sillier songs like "On My Horsey" and "Dirty Monkey" disrupt the flow of Do You Like My Tight Sweater?, the danceable creativity of Moloko's debut overrides its quirks.

Another reason why it's a Good Day.
