As a big fan of the first Elastica album, I waited with baited breath for the second. After hearing the release "Mad Dog" I thought "Wahaay, its another cracking album". Unfortunately the rest of the album can't live up to the standards we have come to expect from Elastica.
The result is an album with a couple of good tracks, but mainly filled with simple indie-pop tracks that make you feel you could have done a better job of them yourself.
And it all ends with a cover of the classic 80's "Da da da" originally by "Trio". I'll let you decide for yourself what to make of that.

But then that's hardly surprising as it was a Britpop classic. That said, it has a few interesting tracks and for less than a fiver it's nice to hear Justine's voice again

After a hit first album, which remains a classic and great favourite, there was a five-year gap before the follow-up arrived in 2000. Studio perfectionists, after some eventful years of work, they had ditched the lot and re-recorded the bulk of the album in a few weeks, only to see the album flop upon release. A tour followed in which the band felt they were regularly blown off stage by the support act, Peaches, who was accompanied only by a beat box, so, considering wryly their banks of equipment and teams of support, they split up.

I suppose the market must have changed after the first record, because the music is still fine, highly entertaining in fact. I had been surprised not to come across it in second-hand shops - perhaps those who did buy it had hung on to it. Justine Frischmann and Elastica are much missed and needed at the present time

Well, 5 years since the debut, this is the perfect 2nd album. More balls(sic), some nifty keyboard work and a welcome return of Annie on bass. We've missed you Justine and co. and by gum, are we glad your back. It's put my faith back in music - call it indie or whatever you like but it's a welcome distraction from the BLAND pop charts of today. Stand out tracks : How We Wrote Elastica Man (gimme me an E..E! gimme and L...L!, etc) Miami Nice, Your Arse My Place (complete with Justine's trademark "1-2-3!") and my fave My Sex. 45 minutes of pure brilliance. Buy it.

Not Elastica, Elastica I grant you but its better than good.
The five-year interlude between that album and Menace shows.
The spiky guitars are still there, but the departure of Donna Matthews and the arrival of new influences are clear. Elastica are now more mature without losing any of their shut up and listen edge.
Track 1, Mad Dog, the only single from this album alludes to the great stuff of the mid 90’s. Whilst Track 3, Elastica Man, with it’s chant of E.L.A.S.T.I.C.A shoves its self in your face shouting “Remember us!” And just when you think you’ve got this album’s card marked Track 11, My Sex, happens. The quiet beautiful voice of Frischmann in this melancholy song of things lost evokes all of the turmoil between 1995 and 2000.
Elastica arrived just when we, and Britpop, needed them most in ’95 and five years later they sign off with an album that means we wont forget their contribution.
In short its great.
Elastica, over and out!

About half the tracks on this album are good, (Mad dog, Generator, How he wrote Elastica Man, Nothing Stays the Same, A love like Ours, Da da da). The rest seem to be there to pad out the album. I was disappointed that 5 tracks are taken from the "6 track-ep", but they have been polished up nicely. The strange thing is that although this isn't a great album (as their first certainly was) there is still a certain something about Elastica which sets the pulse racing. The b-sides on Elastica's first 4 singles were superb, and maybe that is all part of the learning process, when you're knocking out really ace songs don't throw 'em away on the arse side of singles, 'cos then when it comes to writing the next album you'll just have to start from scratch. Still good, I await the new line-ups next offering with great hope (apparently they've been laying down some stuff to put with the new single. . . I'll be buying that when it arrives)
