5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By dave.dupuy@virgin.net on 4 Jan. 2000
Format: Audio CD
Back in the late 80's, Ireland, basking in the glory of having the "biggest band in the world" where producing rock bands quicker than your average flu virus. An unfortunate thing if you were an up and coming four piece from the percieved rock capital of the world. Every news hack was poised ready to announce the emergence of the 'next U2' and it was a title that laid heavy on the shoulders of many a group. However it didnt stop anyone from trying. The 'Happens' at least had the backing of Dave Fanning (Irelands answer to John Peel) who had the dubious title of being the man who discovered U2, and was going to make sure no upstart discovered the next one before him. If there was ever a criticism that could have been laid at them it was that perhaps they tried too hard. Tuneful pop, pre-dating anything from Blur et-al, was their trademark and was evident in abundance in this work. The radio friendly 'parachute', the rock bombast of 'hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, (petrol)' and the heartache of 'kill the roses' are as good as anything produced by any Irish band. However all the good work by the musicians was constantly let down by amateur and arkward lyrics (audiences preferring to mumble along quietly rather than sing out loud). In the end I can forgive them this failing as listening to these songs brings me right back to my college days in Dublin and how I always scored at a Happens gig. Kudos guys!

An undiscovered gem 4 Oct. 2005
By Dr. J. Sefton Business Ac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having encountered this band by accident (they supported The Mission at Wembley Arena circa 1990), I was impressed enough to seek out their album. Actually, I taped if off Justin Snoxhall but I have since atoned for my crime and bought it on CD, downloaded it onto my iPod and burned it into my brain. You should too. Every track is a stand out- melodic, clever, heartfelt, funny. After a listen or two every tune and smart lyric gets lodged deep into the part of your auditory cortex that apparently deals with singing along with a smile on your face. Strangely, the follow up was rubbish. But this should be enough for anyone.

Get this album(or if you know Justin, see if you can tape it off him).

A sublime and superb record of jubilant pop gems . . . 25 April 2006
By B. Hellinga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I know, I know, a previous reviewer used the words "gems" but honest-to-goodness I can think of no other word that describes the beautiful and bouncy songs on this album. In my entire life there have been only a handful of times were I sat down and listened to a new album only to have broad smile spread across my face and joy in my heart as, song after song, I realized I had discovered a sugary slice of musical heaven.

The band never lived up to the promise of this first album, but it's a secret treasure than any fan of "pop-folk-alterna-rock-or-whatever-the-heck-we-call it." And perhaps I've oversold this album. But it is irresistably hooky and exuberant rush when you have, as I did, no idea of what was to come. I suppose after 16 years, it may sound a tad dated, but I don't think so . . . Treat yourself to this album. It's an underappreciated delight.

Something Happens, Somthing Special! 15 Mar. 2007
By J. Conway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As the years pass, my mind has a way of filtering out the fluff from the good stuff. CDs that consumed me ten years ago often slip off my radar completely, never to be listened to again. This is not the case with Stuck Together With God's Glue. This is a really great piece of work, and though it's coming up on twenty years of age, it is still fresh, positive, energetic and evocative of pre-boom Ireland - there's still an innocence to it and this is what I love about it.

For those from Ireland, I saw Something Happens in one of the first 'Trips to Tipp' in the early nineties. Special memories for sure, and this CD takes me right back. This comes very highly recommended from me.

Waiting for a plane at Dublin Airport 8 Feb. 2003
By Don Bremner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard hello hello at dublin airport,in 1992 on my walkman,I was so impressed with the track I had to find out who the artists were.I found out which station had carried the song and phoned them up to be told it was a band called Something Happens,a quick trip to the duty free shop and I had my copy of "Stuck To-Gether With Gods Own Glue" Straight away the tracks that stood were Hello Hello, Parachute, I had a feeling, Kill the roses, Room 29 (my fav)Good time coming and Sky rockets.For me and I suppose a lot of people its very rare to find so many tracks that grab you so quick.Its an albumn of bright slick music that becomes infectious and has you humming along in no time.I still have the original Mc and its travelled with me all over Europe and every now and then I hear a track that has a similar melody and its out again.I dont know what happened to them but my tape is pre-internet so the trail has gone cold,but deep down I suspect the song writer was prised away from the original members (as I know from experience) and put on another project that probally failed. Its a shame because here we have a band way ahead of its time that could be one of our household names,this band if backed by Virgin could have stood the test of time Im sure, Even if they looked a bit like Jim Kerr
Give this albumn a listen its well worth it.
Regards
Don Bremner

great fun cd 2 Jan. 2004
By Emily - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The CD is worth buying for the Parachute Song alone. I use to hear this CD on U92FM which was a college station. It has that home spun college sound. It is light and airy and refreshing. I really think that the makers of Shrek and Shrek 2 should use the parachute song. It would be PERFECT for an animated movie. Too bad this CD was lost during the grunge era. It was really good, they deserved more credit.
Parachute Song = all time buddy song
