This is a great album, from the cover to the contents (although to appreciate the cover the vinyl version was far better). Hearing the album is due for a re-release I have been playing it to death recently.

Karl Wallinger had left the Waterboys and established his own group, World Party. Have already released the excellent Private Revolution (also due a re-release at the same time), this was his second offering from the "new" group. And what an offering. A mixture of world music (think Talking Head era Naked) with some gorgeous pop melodies, particularly in "Put the Message in the Box". Its an album which is difficult to pigeon hole in terms of style, due to the sheer eclecticism of the contents (at times the Beatles meet the Stones meeting Motown meeting African tribes.....).

Wallinger has managed to make an album which not only appears timeless in terms of the music, but also included subjects which were important at the time; "Is it Too Late" ponders whether it is too late to save the planet - a subject which was relevant at the time of release, and even more so now.

To me, this was World Party's zenith - the aforementioned Private Revolution was good and contained the classic "Ship of Fools" which gave an indication of the environmental campaigner within Wallinger ("save me from tomorrow....I don't want to sail this ship of fools"), Bang! continued this theme, whilst

In short this album is a classic.

I bought it when it came out and loved it.

I had not listened to it for some time and dusted it off after hearing a track on the radio.

The album is just brilliant - there is just not a weak song on it.

With of course Message in the Box an all time great pop song.

You don't see this album in the shops much which is a tragedy.

Go out find it and buy it

You won't regret it.

I am off to buy Egyptology!

Back in 92/93 I was backpacking around the world with 'Goodbye Jumbo' as essential listening, alongside, REM's 'Automatic for the People' and U2's 'Achtung Baby'. Why 'Goodbye Jumbo' is not remembered in the same way as these other two albums is a mystery to me. Wonderful evocative songs, vaguely reminiscent at times of Dylan and the Stones and of real substance. Some day it will surely be recognised as a classic album!

Format: MP3 Download Verified Purchase
After an absence of 15 years from my music collection (thanks to first owning it on vinyl, then being unable to get it on CD for many years and then just plain forgetting) I was prompted to search for the download version after a conversation with friends on a car journey about those albums that are so good that there are no dud or inferior tracks on them. 'Goodbye Jumbo' is one of my very favourite albums ever - one that I never get tired of or skip tracks on. It's hard to pick favourites from such a potent line-up, but for nostalgia value I've loved singing along to "Way Down Now" and "God On My Side" and for joyful hippie idealism, I love "When The Rainbow Comes and "Love Street". Lyrics that really count, beautiful melodies and Karl Wallinger's voice as smooth and delicious as dark chocolate, this album reminds that deep down, I am still the indie-hippie-chick drinking vodka and spinning vinyl in my friend's attic room (even though I'm now 44) and always will be.
