Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Rather than them opting for redundancy, the second album from Monaco--the pet project of New Order's groin-stretching, upper-registry bass plucker Peter Hook--arrives at a time when the parent group emerges from cold-storage to add a little coda to their legend. Still, two New Orders are clearly better than none. And so it is time, once more, for geneticists and sociologists to deliberate on whether the doppelganger Bernard Sumner-isms of singer David Potts (who nearly debunked to Oasis in 1999) are the results of nature or nurture. After all, "I've Got A Feeling" and "Black Rain" effortlessly succeed in retracing, in voice and spirit, the brightly-strummed guitar-pop frisk of New Order's "Way Of Life" and "Dream Attack", whilst Hook's treble-top bass buzzes around in the background like an irate hornet looking for a scrap. Fine stuff, though oddly, given their name, the only thing remotely Mediterranean about this record is the dated "do it on the dance floor, every woman and man" club-thing of "See-Saw". --Kevin Maidment

4.0 out of 5 stars A Step Away from Music for Pleasure 27 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
There's a bit more electronica in this release than Monaco's first effort. The bassline in the first song, "I've Got a Feeling," is quite similar to Brotherhood's "Weirdo," but hey, I don't mind -- it's a great song. The last song on the album is an instrumental (a la Sedona on MfP) that's definitely drum 'n' bass. All in all, a solid second effort with some seriously catchy tunes.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the album New Order should've made.... 30 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...after all, David Potts sure sounds alot like Bernard, and with Hooky's unmistakable bass guitar, you'd be thinking you were listening to New Order! But for now with NO in the studio with a new album on the way, this'll have to do. And what a great album it is! Although not as good as "Music For Pleasure", all ten songs are catchy and infectious as ever. This is especially evident in the first three songs: "I've Got A Feeling", "A Life Apart", and "Kashmere". I have to admit that the video for "Feeling" went to the dogs!(if you've seen the video, you'll know EXACTLY what I mean! ;-)). Anyways, highly recommended like their first one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Monaco; pants? 29 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
No! Contrary to popular belief this is very classy, and shows that the band have improved since their debut album in 1997. I actually reckon a lot of this sounds like the Lightning Seeds, but it will obviously appeal to NewOrder fans most of all. Standout tracks are "It's A Boy", "Black Rain", and the sublime "I've Got A Feeling", but, unlike "Music For Pleasure", there aren't (m)any tracks that require skipping. Top stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars New Order Take 2? 25 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, this is a case of does this sound like Hooky's previous work on New Order's Brotherhood. And David Potts sounds more like Bernard Sumner than well Bernard Sumner!
But apart from that this is an album of great melodies and because like me you miss New Order, this is about as close your likely to get.
