4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant first album 9 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant first album from Gun. They manage to create that unforgettable 80's rock feel in each song. Despite mostly singing about the usual cliches of shattered dreams and losing or lusting after love, these songs are far from being boring or monotonous. Instead, the rocky up-beat tempo and crazy guitaring is guaranteed to put a smile on your face- 'better days' and 'inside out' are prime examples of that. Having said that, i found the title track, 'taking on the world' a little depressing but i still liked it. The opening bars are strangely haunting, an extremely moody but powerful song. The most striking thing about this album is that it sounds like Gun genuinely sing from the heart, there's a real sense of hidden meaning behind the words.

4.0 out of 5 stars The world didnt take on GUN 11 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
An amazing debut album. Travis, Radiohead, Coldplay.....classed as wonders of the modern industry, while 10 years or so ago, an energetic Scottish band broke onto the scene and as fast as they were to appear popular, they were gone. Although they still produce, WORLD was there finest and even still to this day SHAME ON YOU beats and strums in my ears. Im older, wiser and for a time I forgot. But listen again and wonder why they were not bigger. Simple as that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Infuriating quality sound 22 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really liked this album when it 1st came out so bought it again as you do because you enjoyed it 1st time round. Absolutely nothing wrong with the music ..................its the quality of the music on the CD........... its rubbish some of the tracks the sound is really poor hence its infuriating.

The download mp3 is ripped from this poor quality sound so it is just the same.

Remembered this from back in the day and bought it as it was cheap, production is fairly terrible and dated, this one's going on Ebay.
