Mondo Bongo saw the Boomtown Rats moving firmly away from the sound of The Fine Art of Surfacing into more rhythmic waters. Led by the reggae tinged Banana Republic it showed be Rats experimenting in a way they hadn't done before. Fortunately all of the experiments paid off and the result is an enjoyable and imaginative album. I like the sound of the remaster, it sounds clear to me. The reissue includes the previously uncredited curio that finished side two of the vinyl release, now titled Cheerio, one b side, an rewarding cover of Arnold Layne and a good live version of Another Piece of Red. This album was the sound of the rats spreading their wings and it paved the way for the richer textures of V Deep.

I was really happy to here that the back catalogue would finally get a new lease of life!
The content for me is flawless, hence the 5 stars.
A great shift into the '80s for The Boomtown Rats !
UNFORTUNATELY this cd is plagued with DISTORTION throughout the disc which makes me question "Definitive Remaster".
The distortion carries through to the bonus tracks also so perhaps the problem is not from the original album master tapes.
It's nice to see this disc back in the rack but it would benefit greatly from a little more TLC at the so called remastering stage.
I have yet to listen to the other discs and hope that the sound quality is not as bad as this one.

From the opener Straight up (could have come straight from The Fine Art Of Surfacing) this album had me interested. A change of direction for the rats on many songs here. The single Banana Republic with the sexy bass line and dreamy hook line is testement to the bands versatility. Elephants Graveyard should have been a big hit (love the line "justice isn't blind, it just looks the other way") while fall down is so different you wouldn't have said it was The Boomtown Rats at all. Nice little 60's feel to Whitehall 1212 complete with james bond style guitar riff. I loved this album when it came out and listening to it today still feel the same.

Mondo Bongo NOT Mondon Bongo.

One of the patchier albums by the Boomtown Rats.

Some superb tracks like Banana Republic and Fall Down here in their full unabridged glory. Elephant's Graveyard and Go Man Go are also among the finest moments from the Rats. Elsewhere there are a number of solid tracks, however Mood Mambo, Whitehall 1212, and Under Their Thumb aren't really worth writing home about though none are particularly offensive.

The re-issues also contains the Rats worst song, Another Piece of Red. TWICE! As if once wasn't enough for the tuneless dirge you get a live version that is even more inferior. Heaven knows what possessed them to do Arnold Layne. Pink (sic) will be turning in his grave.

Get this once you have listened to the first three albums and their swansong, In The Long Grass.

...it's just a shame the sound levels are so wrong. It's remastered too loud, so it sounds as though your speakers are maxed out. A real shame, as we've been waiting years for the Rats back catalogue to be re-released.
Other than that, it's a classic album. It's not the Rats at their punkiest, but's it's not the disaster that was 'V Deep'. One of my favourites. I don't care what they were doing off wherever they recorded this, it worked a charm.
