Funkadelia with the Mondays!, 20 May 2000
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!
