5.0 out of 5 stars A classic British album...
Ironic that MOR goons like Coldplay & Travis have cleaned up with a similar kind of music to Sunhouse- who like Unbelievable Truth have been looked over in the folk-ish rock sense.
Crazy on the Weekend (1998) remains an absolute classic, 12 of the finest tracks that spring to mind, all in one convenient place. Sunhouse were probably most famous for having some songs...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great cd but arrived in damaged box
Obviously I expect some wear and tear when buying second hand but the box was quite damaged, it had crack in the front and the bit on inside which holds cd was totally smashed so didn't hold cd in place. My husband loves the music and we bought this for my mother in law as she has heard music on husbands iPod. Digital download was only 5.99 but paid nearly 20 so mother in...

5.0 out of 5 stars The blues-rock album of the decade, 16 Sep 2000

This review is from: Crazy on the Weekend (Audio CD)
Music that speaks to your soul, is the best way to describe this album. There're very few CD's that I will actually buy, being the Manager of a music store, but this is one that anyone who enjoys real music, being vocals, guitar and drums, must own. Every track on the CD is a masterpiece, every chord builds on the one before, with every lyric you want more! When these guys get around to recording a new album, I will buy it without even listening to it first.

Obviously I expect some wear and tear when buying second hand but the box was quite damaged, it had crack in the front and the bit on inside which holds cd was totally smashed so didn't hold cd in place. My husband loves the music and we bought this for my mother in law as she has heard music on husbands iPod. Digital download was only 5.99 but paid nearly 20 so mother in law could have her own cd. Great music shame case was in such bad condition

5.0 out of 5 stars My 44th birthday present, 5 Jan 2001

This review is from: Crazy on the Weekend (Audio CD)
Roo gave me this album for my 44th birthday. June 14th 1998. As soon as I put it on I loved it. I loved the sound. It took a bit of time to really appreciate it, but the old trick of putting a new album on a C60 and playing it loads in the car proved successful. It used to be that I would get home and put on a record and leave the autochange off. This meant that when the record finished playing the last track on side one, it would start again with the first track. As I wandered around my extensive flat in Harlow, tidying up, cleaning, dusting, cooking, washing up, marking exercise books I would quickly get to know side one of a new album. It would seep into my subconscious and after a dozen plays I would be ready to sit and listen to it properly. These days with a CD and a bigger house where the music cannot really be heard from another room, life is much more complex! So the C60 format is invaluable. This album and the Strangelove album became the soundtrack to unemployment during the World Cup and the trouncing of South Africa in the Test Match (thank god for Angus Fraser's batting). And I achieved familiarity by having the albums on in the car. Then one day, I discovered the true depth of "Swing Low". What is this song about? So one lonely night I played this song about twenty times in the dark whilst Roo watched ER and I felt the despair and loved the way that after the first rendition of the "chorus" the drums, violin and keyboards take over for thirty seconds and amplify the depth of despair and hopelessness. And after the twentieth hearing I let the next track play. I hadn't really discovered Animal up till now, but when it all goes pear shaped and loud I just stood transfixed with the headphones on in the dark wondering how it is possible to feel more emotion than this. And slowly but surely the whole album came together for me. Every track is precious as Monty Python very nearly said. Listen to this for directness from Lips "A word from your lips is more precious to me than a thousand pieces of silver or gold. A moment at your feet is more amazing to me than all of the wonders of this whole wide world. You laid me down on white clouds floating free. You set me up in tall tress your body wrapped around me. You could make me happy. You could make me happy. A smile on your face is more beautiful to me than the arc of a rainbow in the sunlit sky. You touching my flesh is more exciting to me than any fortune or fame that may come my way. You laid me down on white clouds floating free. You set me up in tall tress your body wrapped around me. You could make me happy. You could make me happy." This is a beautiful song. The way Gavin Clarke sings "me" throughout this song is sublime. A bit like the way Bianca says "Bep-aye" but just a tad more soulful. Every track is good. And they like Star Trek ("Today is a good day to die") There's a great hidden track as well. It's called Second Coming and it's preceded by the sound of Gavin Clarke looking forlornly out of the window of his fifth floor flat in the middle of a large impersonal city. The street below is full of life, cars driving happy people out for a great evening and the singer has to endure another lonely night and contemplate his life and what he can do to redeem himself. Well, that's how I interpret it - listen for yourself. I love this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff, 24 Feb 2003
By 
This review is from: Crazy on the Weekend (Audio CD)
This was a highly enjoyable album to listen to, combining many styles, with great lyrics and vocals. The only slight complaint I have about it is the use of the harmonica - very Bob Dylan and just a bit irritating. It does compliment some of the tracks but not all of them. The feeling of the album is ver melancholy, but not in an overly depressing way which does make it pleasureable and relaxing to listen to. I would suggest this on a warm summer's evening with a drink, possibly a whiskey and ginger ale. All in all a good album but not a great one, hence four stars
