If you have a pulse you will love this album. The first 4 songs are the strongest, with "The Reverend Black Grape" making me want to get up and DANCE! This is easily the best thing Sean Ryder's ever done, including the Happy Mondays.
A joyous, sarcastic, bitter and energetic set of songs encompassing love, religion, drugs and money. Buy it and prepare to be uplifted!

Personally I LOVE this album. I've had it for four years and it's still one of my big faves. A dash of funk and a swish of subversive wordplay, all rolled into a drugged up haze of religion, politics, and love. The lyrics may sound superficial enough, but actually make a surprising amount of sense, waxing satirical about this and that. A great album, with a lot of great ideas!

Every single song on this first album by Black Grape is superb and definitely Shaun Ryder's best album release outside The Mondays. As always with Shaun you get superb lyrics especially on one of the tracks of the nineties, `Kelly's Heroes'.

Every tune stands up on its own with no fillers on the album - especially tracks like `Big Day in the North' and `Shake Your Money'. For me this is one of the albums of the nineties and Shaun Ryder shows on it why he's one of the best songwriters to come out of that decade. Top Notch album!!

Who could say anything bad about Shaun Ryder. Him and Bez came back from extinction to make a new record in the spirit of the Mondays but the technology of the time. Really it's just one big party, all of the songs are jubilant and merry, not one makes you ponder about life but just enjoy what's great at the time. They did go down hill a bit after the co singer left but who cares, at least they made this first

One of the great albums of the 1990's, this found Shaun Ryder re-energised from the demise of the Happy Mondays. A band that plays looser, funkier and grittier than ever before. The lyrics are superb encapsulating drug lingo, social commentary, pure nonsense and sheer badness! This album is a joy top listen to, its hedonism matched by superb playing, many hooks, twists and turns....this is some ride. I have listened to this album for 15 years now and it is one I always come back to. Possibly the greatest party album ever made, its genre is difficult to define because boundaries are being pushed and tested on all fronts. This is a record that hasn't dated, still sounding just as fresh in 2011 as it did in 1995.

How do you sum up the talents of Shaun Ryder? Singer, rapper? He's not that good at either. One supposes he's good at being Shaun Ryder and this album encompasses the vibe that his vocal and presence evokes. This is an album one will keep going back to as musical fads come and go, as long as a hedonistic streak exists this is an album and a collection of people one can identify with.
