Well what can you say about this album.
Its probably the most intelligent album from any band in the late 90's. To those that don't understand it then it is a pity because this has everything! A guitarist pulling off amazing sounds, operatic vocals. Brilliant philosophical lyrics concerning life, the universe and everything. Dont forget drumming and bass playing the tightest Mansun ever produced. I defy anyone with musical taste to not thoroughly enjoy this. Think Pink floyd updated for the nineties, ITS THAT GOOD! Some songs would have benefitted from cutting down such as "six" and "shotgun". Although the "six" single version got remixed by Arthur Baker of New Order fame and is worth tracking down. Much more concise and structured. Beneath all the effects these are brilliant pop songs play by Northerners deranged on L.S.D and god knows what else. Legacy reached number 7 in the charts and it's a depressing song because it's real and not manafactured and about life. If you enjoy trippy ambient soundscapes then you WILL ENJOY THIS. And you owe it to yourself to own this. Forget what NME said about this band because they were just jealous of Mansun's talent and never backed them. Paul Draper was probably too outspoken for his own good but with music to believe in like this who cares? At the time of its release he said it would be the best thing to come out in years and this didn't make him any friends in the press and attracted lots of claims of pretentiousness from untalented journalists.
Mansun slipped up with Little Kix although it still had great songs "Unitil the next life " being the best.
BUY IT, LISTEN, YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED

I wanted to take the opportunity to pay tribute to my favourite album on the day on which I've found out that the band behind it have split up.
I could write many pages on what makes this album special but how can I add anything to the glowing praise of the reviews already on this site. They speak volumes for the effect this album can have on you if you only give it the chance.
Buy this album and listen to it 100 times in succession. It cannot be touched.

I'm not overly familiar with the entire creative output of Mansun - save for a few singles that have stuck in my mind from the final days of Britpop - but this particular album is one that I know quite well, and is a record that probably should be listed amongst the most interesting indie-pop/rock albums of the 1990's. It's certainly a major departure from the sound of certain other indie acts of the era, particularly bands like The Verve, Blur and Oasis, with the sound of Six owning more to Radiohead's classic album OK Computer... and, to a lesser extent, the records they released thereafter. It also nods to the sound of the seventies and eighties too, with Bowie style glam-rock references (in the guitar playing and the way in which the vocals have been treated), Pink Floyd style progression (lots of longer songs that seem to have different parts and sequences) and a post-punk-Magazine-style noise (the sense of attitude and the song-themes that never become entirely clear) all cropping up within the mire of disparate musical ideas.
As a conceptual piece it's a definite epic, both in terms of sound and content, and is a record that seems to have been somewhat lost within the recent shuffle of 90's indie-rock (...albums like Definitely Maybe, Common People and The Great Escape become unarguable classics, whilst albums like New Wave, Promenade, Seamonsters and England Made Me drift off into the background. Why?). Like those albums, Six deserves to be mentioned more often, as it best illustrates what happens when a band gets bored with the generic and decide to take a few risks... resulting in a number of songs that seem to mutate from minute to minute in the possible hope of destroying everything the previous incarnation of the band had stood for.

It should be listened to by everyone, everywhere. But then again nobodies perfect. This is probably one of the most exciting rock albums ever released!! There is no way you can get tired of this album - none of it is boring - even after 25 listens you're still noticing new bits or instruments (i.e - if you listen hard enough on Legacy in places you can hear break-beats in places) - really hidden DJ scratches, strange noises and kazoo's, and more!! The opening 3 Tracks are sublime, then for "Fall Out" the album loses a bit of momentum, but we are launched straight into the rush of "Seratonin", and then the sublime "cancer", which contains one of the most beautiful piano and guitar solo's ever! Ok "Witness to a murder" was a bad idea, but in this album, it doesn't seem strange! "Television" has a sublime guitar solo and ending whilst nothing ive heard rivals the blistering "Special/Blown It" - one of the greatest rock songs ever written. We all know the 2 excellent closers "Legacy" and "Being A Girl". If you just want pop music buy Robbie or Britney, if you want an album that can claim to be influenced by Underworld, Aphex Twin, Tears for Fears, The Sex Pistols and The Velevet Undeground at the same time - then buy this!!!
