Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

For the sheer quantity of dysfunctional musical bric-a-brac that My Computer manage to shoe-horn into each and every track, Vulnerabilia is a staggering album. That the Manchester duo actually make good with their ferociously eclectic tastes, is an astonishing triumph of imagination over reason. By rights the chaotic, stop-start collision of folky guitars, plaintive vocals, jack-hammer beats, melancholic string sections, vocoders and snarling analogue noise, should make for painful and confused listening. Yet for all their disparate ingredients, the songs possess an aching sensitivity and tender beauty that's absolutely mesmerising. Driven by an epic sense of drama and lyrical daydreams of making it out of the gutter, they are the musical equivalent of emotional turmoil. In fact, the murky likes of "All I Ever Wanted Was a Good Time" and "For Somebody Else"--moving from desolately plucked acoustic guitars and lonesome Sputnik bleeps to stomping dancefloor anger and back again--convey the highs, lows and desperation of life like nothing else before them. --Dan Gennoe

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure original genius 9 May 2003
By Lendrick VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
No album that sounds like a collision involving Radiohead, Steely Dan, Pavlovs Dog, Underworld & Air deserves to sound this good. It takes a few listens to got into it though. I bought after hearing 'More To Life' on Radio 1s Blue Room and initially wasn't impressed - for a start I don't usually like vocoded vocals. However after a few listens I am now hooked. As others have said the range of musical styles (in each song!) is huge yet it all works beautifully - the music is almost impossible to describe - you have to hear it!
Perhaps this is how Kid A should have sounded?

5.0 out of 5 stars Something refreshing 30 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Vulnerabilia is an interesting mix of electronica, guitar and radioheadesque singing. Imagine a combination of Pink Floyd, Bent, Radiohead and Air and you are just scrpaing the surface. Sounds like it might not work but it does, and to great effect.
I would recommend this album to anyone wanting to listen to something chilled out, melodic, original and REFRESHING.

This album defies description on several levels.
Firstly, it's a real broad mix of styles. The album starts out with the title track "All I Ever Really Wanted Was A Good Time", which begins with a subtle little ambient lead in and vocodered vocals á la "Eiffel 65"; the track them transmutes into hardcore, nosebleed Techno and then fades out into bliss-out acoustic guitar overlaid with, yup, you guessed, more vocodered vocals. The rest of the album is a similarly eclectic mix, managing to somehow blend in deep-South American blues guitar somewhere along the way.
Secondly, albeit the range of styles vary so much, this album is really well produced and gels in a really well-put-together sort of a way. This is even more surprising considering that the two guys who make up "My Computer", Messrs Luke and Chester, put the whole thing together with no more than a household PC, a sampler, a few guitars and a mixing desk.
Thirdly and finally, the CD is overprinted with the image of a large, orange rat, while the cover itself seems to have been assembled out of cut-up newspapers and magazines by a colour-blind Rhesus monkey. Or possibly even a Macac.
One to buy for anyone into bliss-out/trip-out/hardcore house/ambient tunes. Everyone should buy it, we'd all learn something.
