Why This Album Is So Great:

This album is one of those efforts that just creep up on you the more you listen to it. It took me about five times of listening to even start liking it for real and from then it just grew and grew. Mansun are part of that huge wave of young British bands with a sound that's more or less similar. Still, Mansun are special in the way they mix rock, pop and dance (and sometimes in the same song!). Personal favourites here are "Wide Open Space", "Stripper Vicar" (listen to the chorus and die), and the pretty great bonus track. But, the album is filled with great tunes and really should not be fragmented in this way. Listen to it, give it lots of time and watch as you start singing along and your feet start bouncing away. And that's all I have to say about that...

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 8
