5.0 out of 5 stars Memory of a great year 14 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The years 1995-96 were the best ever, and "Great Things", "Dark Therapy" and "King of the Kerb" soundtracked some great moments. "Something Hot in a Cold Country" is a song that I played over and over again at a time when I was being trawled through the mud.... This is one of my special albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Im ON-board 9 Mar 2009
By NCA
Format:Audio CD
A great female fronted band.A good consistent album, all good tunes with a 90's feel.

This still stands up way past the 90's and hopefully will continue to do so....

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, great album 10 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just love this Album. It's bordering on radio friendly but has enough 'indy' in it to satisfy. If you came to it because of 'Dark Therapy' you'll stay for the rest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Things! 6 Jun 2013
By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard Echobelly back in the mid-nineties, I wasn't that impressed. There were so many excellent indie bands around at the time and I unfairly categorised and dismissed Sonya Madan and the group as average Sleeper-like bandwagon jumpers. However, as I worked in a music store at the time, several of the singles, which were on heavy rotation, started to work their way into my mind and, eventually, I relented and bought this album. It was one of those albums that I was almost annoyed to admit that I really liked, but I did - and I still do. Although this is very much an album of the time, released when "Britpop" was very much the big thing (about the only time in my personal history when my musical taste has been remotely mainstream), listening to it now still reveals it to be a very melodic, energetic, enjoyable experience. The big singles (the maddeningly catchy "King Of The Kerb, the irrepressibly upbeat "Great Things" and the quietly epic "Dark Therapy") are all superb, but this release is much more than just a few good singles with a lot of padding - "On" is also a very good album in pretty much its entirety and there are another handful of tracks which could also easily have been singles.

I don't think this is just nostalgia talking, either. "Go Away" has a great winding riff, "Pantyhose & Roses" is a great little kitchen-sink drama, the way the album opener, "Car Fiction", immediately builds the tension is an excellent statement of intent, "Natural Animal" boasts a powerful chorus with a great vocal performance and "Something Hot In A Cold Country" is a beautifully dreamy piece with a memorable chorus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Part Of The 1990s Britpop Canon 16 Jan 2012
By A. Marczak TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
In the mid 1990s, there was a big fight going on in the music industry, between Blur and Oasis. You'd be forgiven for thinking that there was nothing else going on but, quietly in the background, plenty of other bands were getting a lot of attention as the Britpop phenomenon grew.

Amongst them were Echobelly, rare as a female fronted Britpop band. Sonja Madan was never a riot grrl or arch-feminist, but her distinctive voice and lyrical style helped them stand out from the wannabees and put them at the forefront of the britpop era. "ON" was their defining album, a foot-tapping combination of jangling guitars, singalong choruses and uplifting lyrics.

Stand out tracks for me, even now, are Dark Therapy and Great Things. The latter is a forward looking, positive thinking jump about kind of song. The former is a lazy, trippy, close your eyes and I will take you all the way kind of song.

If you like your Britpop straight down the middle of the road, this is a great addition to your collection.
