Sprung Monkey's fourth album takes them closer than ever to becoming a mainstream band. Gone is the aggression of old, replaced by catchy pop hooks and non-stop anthemic choruses.
It isn't until track 6, "American Made" that the band let rip with their full ferocity but when they get there with tracks of such quality as "Party Like a Rock Star", who cares?
Opening track "What's That You Say?" kicks in like Feeder at their very best, while songs like "Lucy" are reminiscent of Lit. Which is not to say that the band have lost their way; the inventiveness and desire to do something different are still in evidence.
The excellent musicianship that long-time fans have grown accustomed to is also still there, and you can only hope that radio stations in this country pick up on them this time around. If the likes of Feeder can achieve chart success then there's no reason for pop fans here not to take Sprung Monkey to their hearts too.
The band seem to have chosen the perfect time of year to release the album too, summer's here and there can be few better albums to accompany a barbeque in the sun. If you didn't like Sprung Monkey before, prepare to change your mind.

This album is a long way from sprung monkey's ealier, more 'underground' days. Its a great album for anyone who likes its 'feel-good' punky vibe or for anyone into the likes of sum41 or feeder. Its highlight trcks are "party like a rock star", "whats that you say" and "american made", all songs of great strength that deserve a place in the British charts.Buy it.

A Phat Summer CD for 2K1 26 April 2001
By David P. Leonard - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you're like me, then you have such a wide range of music tastes that you spend half the time in the car changing CD's and avoiding accidents and the other half burning compilation CD's at home to get the just right mix of awesome music on one CD. Well no more, my friend. I just picked this CD up yesterday on the recommendation of one song and let me tell you, this disc has it all. It is the end-all be-all of great summer music of 2K1. It seems sometimes that Sprung Monkey is as schizophrenic as I am in music tastes, because with one song ("Party Like a Rock Star") they have a great Sugar Ray/Sublime feel, while on others ("Unexpected") they get an Offspring groove going perfectly. And how could you miss the other spectacular songs on here like "What's That You Say" (a superb punk ballad) or "Whatcha Gonna Do" (with it's melodic tripped out guitars). I have already got my tickets to see them (luckily) in Milwaukee this next week and I can't wait!
If you love the music stylings of Tony Hawk's ProSkater soundtracks, this disc will make you wanna grab your board, your bladez, your parachute, your hangglider or at least a beer and hang with your buds. A great CD!!!!

What's happened guys?! 19 Sep 2001
By "kweee" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I thought for a while about whether to give this CD a 2 or a 3. I gave it a 3 because it is a fairly decent CD, it's just totally different to what I was expecting and hoping for. If you like catchy, melodic alternative songs then go ahead any buy it. But if you, like me, loved 'Mr Funny Face' and think you'll be getting more of the same, then you might also be disappointed. The best thing about'Mr Funny Face' was its complete originality and its technical complexity- those drums! wow! But that's all gone on 'Get a Taste'- and every song has one of those catchy hooking choruses, and after about 9 songs this gets a bit wearing. There are a few good tracks worth mentioning- 'Friends' reminds me a bit of 'Mr Funny Face', 'Whatcha Gonna Do' is a track with good old Sprung Monkey dark undercurrents and 'American Made' has a lot of the old energy. Apart from that not many of the others stick out. What happened, Sprung? You've gone too mainstream!!!

Very rad album 10 July 2001
By "yub_yub" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm not usually a sprung Monkey fan but when I heard What's That You Say and Party Like A Rockstar I figured what the heck and a got a few of their MP3s. I bought this album as an impulse when I saw it in a store because it was only 9 bucks. It was well worth it, this is now one of my favorite Cds, it's been in the #1 spot in my 5 disc CD player for weeks, a rare thing for me. I don't have to skip a track, all are awesome. This is the perfect summer album. So stop watsing your time reading this review and go buy it! Go, shoo!

Sprung Monkey is BACK!!!! 25 April 2001
By Christian Parrish - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After seeing these guys live, I was scared that the CD would not capture their abilities correctly. It does, the CD is unbelievable. You can listen through the whole thing, and love each song(very rare nowadays). The best songs are Beautiful, Unexpected, Party Like A Rock Star, and American Made to add some flavor. Buy this CD, you won't regret it!!
New and Old... It's all good 9 Feb 2004
By David - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I love almost everything I've heard from sprung monkey, this album is no different. It's not as serious as some of their other music, but it has a really nice upbeat feel to almost all the songs, and their cover of coconut is awesome and funny at the same time. I really wish I could find more bands as good as these guys that are willing to re-invent themselves and experiment with other genres. "Get a Taste" is the kind of album you want for those clear summer days at the beach when the waves are 3 to 5' and clean, and everything seems to be perfect. It's a feel good album and definitely worth your purchase.
