This is just a fantastic album that subverts all the standards of the new swing movement (most of which were established by The Royal Crown Revue) and takes them to whole new level. From classics such as "Beyond The Sea" and "Walking blues" to all new tracks like "The Rise and Fall of the Great Mondello" and the unforgettably great "Zip Gun Bop" and "Hey Pachuco"(two songs that make The Mask worth watching).
The great thing about The Royal Crown Revue is that they come up with songs that sound as if they were born in Kansas City when Basie was tearing it up but at the same time you can also hear the influence of punk and ska eschewing in the vocals of Eddie Nichols which results in an experience which is totally unique in modern day music.
Anyone who may be looking to get into the whole retro scene will find that all roads lead to the Revue, whether they start from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy or Brian Setzer, these guys are the legitimate forefathers of the resurrection of swing and this is them at their very best.
Its an absolute no brainer. You MUST own this.

This band essentially created Swing revival And this album is just magnificent With horns and REALLY good drumming. Daniel Glass is certainly the Stand out in terms of instruments anyway. Eddie is a great vocalist with some nice character to his voice. The lyrics tells good stories. And the whole album just sounds authentic with a hard punk edge to it as well.

This album is beautifully put together with some of the finest music you will ever hear. I have listened to this album for hours on end and I never want to stop.

It stirs the soul and the imagination and I love it dearly. I've yet to meet someone who can honestly say they can live without Royal Crown Revue in their life.

Took a punt on this, needed something different to listen to.
These guys sound like they are having fun. The music is great, if you like swing and a real boost if your feeling a bit off.

Great album.
