Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

How ace is that title, for starters? Then there's the full-bodied intent on the self-referential "Cheeky Monkey": "My name is Jason / I'll rock your face in / 'cause I've got relations in my band / We rock in the summer / sleep in the winter". Oh yes. The three Perry brothers and their accomplices are a band in the proper sense of the term: a club of like-minded people who know what they want--hedonism!--and how to get it--rock & roll! They state their loves and hates emphatically and publicly announce them by joy-riding waves of punk-rock guitar. They have all the character of AC/DC, and killer tunes to boot. They put a smile on the face of hard rock and show their pop sensibility with the manifesto, "Just like the Bee Gees we put our words down so they rhyme". A marriage made in heaven, with its honeymoon in hell. --Ben Clancy

Format: Audio CD
I am a long time lover of "A" and just need to tell you guys that this was definately the most defining album created by the band. It captures the true sound of "A" and sparks the realisation of their true originality.
Hard thrashing combined with their truly unique, upbeat, feel good sound make this an album that should be "as standard" in your collection, just for the respect of where this band has come from. I feel the band has shifted somewhat with very recent albums and chart entries ie, Nothing, but this is an album that shares something special!
Do yourself a favour if your pretty new to "A". Buy this album and "Monkey Kong" to understand the true greatness of talent, witnessed in this band.

This album is amazing, the first and my peronsal favourite album they have released. There is not one track on this album I do not like, and there are all diverse. Pop-punk at its very best, the sytle varies from slow to fast songs. As soon as you put this CD in your welcomed with "Turn It Up" a sort of intro to set up "Foghorn" which blast out of your stereo! All these songs are awesome and I could write about each one, but im not going to, ill just definately recommend you buy this album.

Format: Audio CD
i think it to be a great shame that A have not perhaps got the coverage that they deserve because they have produced two albums, soon to be three, of absolute mastery. How ace are buildings in 45 minutes of constant rocking beats that leaves you wanting more. When i got this album i listened to it striaght for three weeks so encapsulating are the songs. JP (lead singer) himself said that their only aim was to produce good honest music, that is the understatement of the century.

Pure pop-punk mastery. This album is what so many aren't full of great great songs, there's not a filler in sight. Even after the first play i was whistling, humming and singing along to this cd. Foghorn, number 1 and the almighty Sing along. The song are simple upretentious and rocking like an MS sufferer. There may be more meaningfull bands out there but there aint many that are going to put a smile on your face like this. "Everybody in the building has to sing this song", see simple, stupid and FUN. Do your self a favour and buy this. A deserve to be huge and you deserve to help them

Wonderful riffs and glorious tunes this album is truly a great punk noise and is very catchy indeed.
Unfortunately one of the most irritating voices ever heard is involved and by the middle of the album I could not switch it off fast enough.
If though you can stand the voice (it's a shame that I can't) then you have one of the best fast paced albums of the year full of jollity, almost embarrassing lyrics and fun.
Overall, an acquired taste like no other!!!!
