5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 7 Jun 2009
Nice layout, great photography and just the right amount of info on each entry. Granted, the text is not as detailed as a Collins Field Guide, but given the number of species covered this would be impossible without turning the book into some unwieldy carbuncle. A great little guide to throw in the backpack on a day out, simple as that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ecstatically Eccentric, 13 Nov 2002
This review is from: Lost Horizons (Audio CD)
What can I say? 'Nice Weather For Ducks' is, quite frankly, the weirdest and funniest tune I have heard all year. If you don't break out in a fit of feelgood giggles at the start, and feel even better as the song builds up to a mad trumpety crescendo, you need to stop taking your music so seriously.
As for the rest of the album - by turns sinister (Experiment No. Six) and silly, it is fantastic.
'Space Walk', 'Ramblin' Man' and 'Nice Weather For Ducks' are easily as good as 'Tune For Jack', 'Staunton Lick' from the EP collection.
Effortlessly brilliant and thoroughly recommended. Beautiful album design, too.
Anywhere I can get the cover as a poster?

5.0 out of 5 stars A mellow summer for whenever you need one., 23 Mar 2000
This review is from: Playing My Game (Audio CD)
The kind of album you'll listen to on a lazy summer afternoon when there's nothing left to do but sit and contemplate how nice it is to do nothing. And when summer's over? The kind of album you'll listen to on a bitter winter morning to remind yourself how good it is to sit doing nothing on a lazy summer afternoon. If you can bring yourself to ignore the sneering cyniciscm this album will probably recieve from the 'trendier' muso-journo's - no doubt berating it's lack of innovation and the naivety of the song's, you'll come to realise this is exactly why you find it so ineffably beguiling. Add a vocal talent on par with the likes of Jewel and Beth Orton, and you have the perfect package.

3.0 out of 5 stars Innovative for sure, but does that mean it's good?, 21 Mar 2000
It's not exactly the easiest of album's to listen to, coming across as it does as an extremist version of Vanishing Point. Unfortunately, despite being laden with promise most of the tracks only sound half-realised, or worse, like tracks that didn't quite make the grade for Vanishing Point. For a group of Primal Scream's calibre, known for setting trends (Screamadelica) and bucking them at their height (Give out but don't give up), this album is therefore ultimately a disappointment. It's saving grace is in the form of 'Keep Your Dreams', a melodic and startlingly beautiful song. This album's 'Star', and with the possible exception of 'Kill All Hippies', the only song on the album worthy of the PS mark of genuine brilliance.
