4.0 out of 5 stars The sunshine hit me square in the face!, 26 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Sunshine Hit Me (Audio CD)
I read some reviews about the bees before buying this album, and all the reviewers were making a point about it sounding like funk mixed up with reggae and motown, now I don't really know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't this! Maybe it's the spring weather, but this record seems like pure sunshine distilled onto half inch tape, beach boys harmonies, vocoders, dub basslines and even what sounds like a load of pots and pans on one song make this record a shambolic anarchic mess of a beach party where everyone sings along even if they don't know the words. They kinda sound like the avalanches would if they played real instruments, or the beta band on happy pills. The bees sound like they were having loads of fun recording the album and it can't help but make you smile when you listen to it!
