If you're thinking of getting this album based on All together now, don't. I did when it was origionally released, I thought groovy train was alright and it is. However over the course of 10 origional songs here you just get bored. Dull arrangments, trite lyrics grind you down to the point of simply turning the thing off. If you're looking for early 90's indie dance rock get the happy mondays, jesus jones or if you want a good compilation get the 2 cd unbelievable set, if you can find it. This is rather poor.

Stone Roses and the Charlatans paved the way. Just as well, Spartacus has little to do with the retro psychadelia of the "Madchester Invasion. Spartacus is the 1991 debut album of Liverpool-based pop group The Farm, released in the height of Madchester. It reached number one in the UK album chart, staying there for a week. Spartacus was dedicated to the parents of former band member Andy McVann, who died in a car chase running away from the police.
The Farm employs a sonic palette far richer than their contemporaries, incorporating a myriad of guitar and keyboard tones, as well as percussion loops, and female vocals. Their arrangements tend to be lengthy, although the grooves are augmented with enough melodic decoration to sustain interest, . sitting uncomfortably some where between Flowered Up, Northside and Jesus Jones, whilst aspiring to be the new The Charlatans.

Academically talent musicians the debut album Spartacus is one of the more ridiculous by-products of baggy, containing all of its rolling, neo-psychedelic grooves and blissfully colorful pop hooks, yet very little of its charm, character, or substance. Since baggy was never about substance, this is particularly damning.

Still, the Farm manages to turn out a couple of goofily endearing singles with "Groovy Train" and "All Together Now," but the group shows no real feeling for dance-club rhythms, or even pop hooks. As an artifact, Spartacus is fascinating, since it demonstrates how far the over the top the entire Madchester phenomenon went, even if the record itself isn't necessarily good listening.

But for £0.01p and £1.24 shipping it's a "might as well" but unnecessary addition to your collection

Gets 2 stars simply because of the Groovy Train
