This is a superb album. There are a few reasons why it has never reached the size of audience it deserves. Some of these reasons may be a sad reflection on the music business, the media, and perhaps even the public at large (the 'we get what we're given' approach). Unfortunately, what may be the single biggest reason is entirely the fault of band (or record company) i.e. the truly awful cover; why was any of it a good idea?
Having said that, this is my favoriate Chumbawmba (from 1994 - I don't know why Amazon says '1999' in some places)and damn good it is. At times they make producing catchy, punchy original-sounding music sound so easy.
For me, much of the bands' political views are frankly half-baked (sorry chaps! may be important to you, but they're not to me), but don't really detract from the music.
