This is the strongest of Republica's 2 albums. This is fast poprock with ladles of attitude and a dash of trance. Saffron's no-nonsense goading lyrics cut to the quick even if some of the references are a bit dated now (red shoes, megadrive?)but this was the nineties. So, is the music dated? Not a chance. Ready to Go is still used on TV as the England international football theme.
This is music to listen to while bombing down a tunnel in a hot hatchback.
The next album, Speed Ballads, has shades of the brilliance of this album but if you want to catch Republica at their creative zenith then this first one is the one to get.
