4.0 out of 5 stars
Good, but is it a classic?, 18 Jun 2000
Apollo 18 had a lot to live up to in my opinion, as I only had the brilliant Flood to compare it to. My doubts were partially dispelled with the excellent opening tracks, and the clever track "The Guitar". The album has its fair smattering of good tracks, such as the aforementioned, "Which Describes How You're Feeling" and "See The Constellation", but there are too many average tracks, and few classics to match "Particle Man". However, the inclusion of a number of shorter songs, best described as short jingles, was an inspired one, as they are often incredibly funny, with songs including the lyrics "Please pass the milk please". Well, it is funny when you listen to it. In short, it is not as good as "Flood", but still well worth buying, whatever your musical tastes.
