5.0 out of 5 stars 24-carat serendipitous discovery 11 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
I chanced upon this CD in one of those occasional compulsive trawls for a great new discovery which so often end up with thwarted hopes and missed targets .... not this time. This little gem has been on heavy rotation ever since I got it home.
The dreamy title and hazy, almost mid-west, small-town feel of the cover artwork lull you into an appetite for a trip that's soft and ethereal, and song titles like 'kebab shop 3am' let you know you're in for something a bit quirky and offbeat.
Flunk, it turns out, are Norwegian - though you wouldn't necessarily guess it from the music, which encompasses a sophisticated range of references and moods .... from the charming acoustic version of Blue Monday, featuring a very Bjork-like Tine Skarland, to the downtempo light house grooves of Miss World or Sugar Planet, which wouldn't be out of place next to LTJ Bukem's 'Producer'-era output, or even Moby's 'Porcelain'. Elsewhere, the consistent priority of pleasing floaty tunes over any driving lyrical direction reminds of early Babybird. Mazzy Star and Portishead are other comparisons I might make, though none of these quite harnesses what's so charming about 'for sleepyheads only'. The words do eventually worm their way into your consciousness, and are entertaining odd and unexpected, but it's the music which grabs you first and enduringly.
It's definitely one for those of us who recognise that need, despite all odds, to go out and discover something we've never heard of .... and the huge pleasure when you do find a nugget of something totally unexpected. If you get really excited by music which is quite difficult to pin down and fancy taking a chance on something a bit more leftfield, give this one a try, and maybe you'll be basking too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow, but it got there 27 Nov 2009
By Bebst
Format:Audio CD
It took ALOT longer to receive this item, even though it was much more expensive than two other Flunk CD's I ordered on the very same day, but from other suppliers.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent downbeat album 15 Jun 2005
By E. Cinar Sahin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I didn't know Flunk before this album, and I came across it just looking around. I think it's a great album, really chill melodies and beats. Unlike most downbeat albums each song has something unique about it.

For individual songs, Blue Monday, Honey's in Love and Kebab Shop 3am stand out from the rest.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Band - so glad I found them 25 Feb 2012

Great CD from Northern Europe. I've played it over and over and over, and love the CD. I have two of their CDs and enjoy them both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, Hypnotic and Romantic 5 Mar 2009
By Mark Withers - Published on Amazon.com
Of all the Flunk albums I've heard...this one is my absolute favorite!

Just like the title of my review - it is Breathtaking, Hypnotic and Romantic.

Let this album take you away on a fantastic journey. It's that kind of an album.

If you only hear one Flunk album in your lifetime....this is the one. Love all of their albums!

..One drop in the ocean...just may be that magic potion...

2.0 out of 5 stars Flunk - For Sleepyheads Only 22 Feb 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Oh dear. Usually the Norwegian label Beatservice has good bands, but Flunk and their debut American release on Guidance, For Sleepyheads Only, don't quite make the cut. Their cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" feels lackluster, the female vocals wavy and weak. The male vocals on "Miss World" don't offer much of an improvement. Although "See Through You" matches the vocals to the music better, the instrumentals, like "Sunday People (Don't Bang the Drum)" are stronger -- but not by much. The album as a whole suffers from watered-down trip-hop syndrome. It might be pleasant to listen to overall, it really doesn't make any impression whatsoever.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to work with 1 Jun 2009
By Bridgit L. Farmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My purchase went quickly and smoothly and I was notified as soon as my order was shipped. Unfortuntatley, the postal service lost my package and I never recieved it. But, the seller was very courteous and quick to refund my money when my package didnt arrive within the appropriate amount of time. I didnt even have to ask for a refund... it was just done without any hastle. I would definatley do service with them again due to the ease of the transaction and the trusting and hastle free refund. The only thing that I might suggest to do differently is to ship via UPS or FedEx so you can track your order.
