5.0 out of 5 stars A truly beautiful piece of music. 10 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Spacehog's last LP, "Resident Alien", was a far rockier affair than this one. However, that does not mean that it is bad. Far from it, this album is actually better than the first. The sound progressed significantly in three years - no-one could have thought that the quirky eccentrics who came up with Resident Alien, could produce treasures like "Carry On" and "One of these days". Although I feel nothing but contempt for Michael Stipe and the kitschly twee R.E.M, his voice does bring something to "Almond Kisses". The link from "Goodbye Violet Race" to "Lucy's Shoe" is flawless, and the overall effect of this LP is one of uplifting satisfaction. What can I say? They've done it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Variety is the spice of life 24 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
Spacehog are a pretty eccentric band, and this is comfortably the most varied album they've put out. For those who haven't heard them before, Supergrass are probably the closest comparison, only more American. The Chinese Album provides far more variety and humour than either Resident Alien or Hogyssey. It might take a few listens to really get into, but this is an absolutely superb album that skips between styles with tremendous ease. It won't be to everyone's taste, but you can't really beat Mungo City for a great song, especially when it's followed by The Skylark. Genius on a shiny silver disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAN NO ONE HEAR THE GREATNESS? 31 Mar 2014
Format:MP3 Download
Spacehog. A bunch of lads from Leeds who I know nothing about. Except that they write tunes of rocking greatness. How they aren't massive is a complete mystery to me. Put any of their albums in your car, turn it up to the max, and let rip. I guarantee you will enjoy. Lucy's Shoe - genius.

A great album by Spacehog. I had a bit of trouble with the download at first, but got all the tracks after installing the new download software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chirpier but more mellow. If that's possible! 29 Nov 2000
Format:Audio CD
One of those albums you really have to sing along to. With beautiful songs like "almond kisses" and flipant poppy songs like "skylark" a sure winner, will make you smile everytime.
