5.0 out of 5 stars a golden legacy 20 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
Felt's final offering, I wonder whee they would have been today if they'd stuck together & followed this (august)path? With origins in introspective indie pop they suddenly tuned sideways & came up with what may be the first alt. country album. It was a big deal in those days to break out a steel guitar, but listen to it yearn in" I can't make love ..." there's also sufficient toe tapping jangling pop to satisfy a Brian Wilson fan & Lawrence's voice is restrained & expressive the whole way through. I'm only a little worried by the guitar break in "New Day Dawning", which is a little too similar to the Carpenter's "Goodbye To Love" for my liking.
This should have been their commercial breakthrough, as it is it's their pop legacy.
It belongs in all right thinking people's collections!

5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL ALBUM.......BUY IT!!! 7 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
The last album from felt originally released in 1989 is also their most musically diverse.In contrast to all previous records which were either dominated by guitar or keyboard led instrumentation "Me and a monkey on the moon" embraces the full musicality of guitar,bass,keyboards and samplng to create a multi layered sound which incorporates styles of country,rock and easy listening.Lyrically and vocally Lawrence never sounded better than this,there are nod's to all of felt's previous work but"Me and a monkey on the moon" provides a huge hint to the future direction of Lawrence and his next project.

4.0 out of 5 stars a neglected pop band 14 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was felt's last album, winding up the 1980's. Ten albums and ten singles in 10 years is how the story is usually told. There seems to be a renewed interest in felt due to their name being dropped by Belle and Sebastian, a good thing in my opinion. I like both bands. Chances are if you like B&S you'll like this, you can pick up elements of felt in their sound and in the iconography they use.
This record is the least sparse sounding of all the felt records and production wise sounds the most like B&S. The pedal steel, fender rhodes piano, mellotron, hammond organ and arp string ensemble add nice touches outlining and enhancing lawrence's songs. Lawrence's voice sounds a bit like lou reed and little like bob dylan.
There's a nice mixture of mid tempo and upbeat numbers here, the general mood is melancholic but without a descent into self pity so common with indie bands of today. Felt was a literate and intelligent pop band, their music and album sleeves created a world that was both mysterious and compelling. Its recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Felt flows through my soul... 9 July 2000
By Michael Salmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
listening to anything by felt is a little like a silent day next to the danube. if only you are deaf. this like all albums by felt play's soft through "an unclutterred" mind as belle would say. id recommend going to college instead of being obsessed with these folk. it is always the right choice. the songs are not over 20 minutes and if you like felt you'll like this. but then again if you like felt you own this....
