4.0 out of 5 stars British Music Press = Disgrace 11 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
When this album came out the Music press already had their knives sharpened. The story being Bez making a misguided homophobic quote in an interview that infuriated a media that had it's fill of the laddish/lout baggy scene. Bez in his wisdom gave them what they were waiting for to ultimately destroy one of the most iconic bands of a generation. They started pouring scorn on Sean's addiction problems when previously they celebrated it. The music is sublime, easily the most acclompished work in the Bands career. Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz produced it for fooks sake. I keep the review brief. Compare this to Bummed and tell me this is not superior by an ocean. Yes Sean was in a bad way and the lyrics are a bit messy but that is the beauty of it. It shows an honesty and realism of where Sean was at in that chapter of his life. The press knew Sean had addiction problems all his life but chose to crucify him when they were looking to create a new scene. The King is dead long live the King. He had the last laugh anyway by making one of the comebacks of the century with magnificent Black Grape. He is now relatively healthy, happily married and came across really well in the recent celebrity get me out of here show. How he is still alive is purely by the grace of God. Buy the album, re evaluate and have it sitting proudly in your cd collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funkadelia with the Mondays! 20 May 2000
Format:Audio CD
I really can't understand what all the reviews on Amazon.com and others are talking about. I was initially reluctant to buy the album after it was given poor reviews everywhere but I took a chance and it's great! Following Pills 'N' Thrills was always gonna be impossible but this was a damn good effort - the Mondays classic sound and beat embellished with the full on backing singing of the brilliant Rowetta and a percussion onslaught throughout the album. Some songs are weak on melody admittedly, but where Shaun Ryder fails, Rowetta usually picks up the pieces. Standout tracks are the funky Theme From Netto, the summery Sunshine and Love, Cut 'Em Loose Bruce and the wicked closer Cowboy Dave. I would thoroughly recommend this album - especially as a feelgood prelude to the summer - the album reflects the location where it was recorded - Barbados. What a shame the original band aren't together still.
Happy Mondays Rave on!

5.0 out of 5 stars After pill n thrills 14 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
I know there was those who didn't like this album - but i have to say i did! yeh it's a bit of a departure and they did record it abroad, sold all the studio furniture to buy more drugs (Ryder - you're as 'mad as badgers' but we love ya for it)! But if you really listen - it still says MONDAYS! Also dustman is one of the best tracks they've done - it really flows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal summer tune car space blast off album. 3 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
Mixed by the Tom Tom Club (a couple of ex-Talking Heads members) and produced in Barbados, this album was released to a barrage of criticism, which was unjust in my opinion.
Being one of the few people who has owned since release and listened to this album thoroughly, I feel I am better placed to assess it than the music press which panned it at the time.
Basically, if you like other Happy Mondays work, then I can think of no reason why you should not also find something worthy in this album. It still has all the 90's housey housey dance qualities accompanied by Ryder's quirky lyrics and postmodern 'use of other people's stuff'.
However, it also has a theme of subtle syncopation and changing rhythmic attitude running throughout. From the laid back Stinkin' Thinkin', to the staccatto tension of Cowboy Dave and the happy bouncy House of Sunshine and Love. I suppose recording in the Carribean influenced their mindset slightly too, so we see use of a chat man on Cut 'Em Loose Bruce, reminiscent of Ryder's later outing with Black Grape.
Overall, if you ignore this album it is your loss. But you'll be running away from classic Ryder lyrics, such as Total Ringo's "I can't stand the thought of her dropping another" (not a reference to drugs, but children!), and Sunshine and Love's opening line "If I'm being sneaky, then somethings just freaked me..."
It may be eclectic at times, but if this is just the random result of a load of dirty, grown-up street urchins from Salford then there must be a god.
