4.0 out of 5 stars A great fun album, 2 Aug 2013
Mr. D. Thompson "dan" (leeds) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Show World (Audio CD)
Always been a fan of redd kross. They blend kitschy bubblegum pop rock with a punky alt rock post grungy ethos. If you love stuff like the Posies - a great belnd of melody and loud guitars with memorable choruses then you cant go far wrong with this album. Its probably the best place to start in their catalog.

Phaseshifter was good but this is just more uptempo and varied. Phaseshifter has some great songs and sounds ready for the grunge caked radio charts of '93, but the production and sound on Show World is infection and just plain fun!

If you like their poppy bugglegum side then check out the album Third eye Blind which is as Kitsch as Jellyfish's bellybutton but then covered with chocolate sprinkles and jelly tots. If you like the tougher sound then go for their latest offering or Phaseshifter. They're earlier stuff is shabby, sloppy punk - but not in the good Replacements way.

Anyways - yet another massively over looked band selling for a matter of mere pence on Amazon - I'm losing count of how many great cd's i have picked up now by great bands that just aren't loved like they should be.

Do yourself a favour - if you have managed to read this review then you probably have a half decent taste in music, for the sake of less than a sarnie from tesco or a pint in the local boozer get some Redd kross in your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album ever, 27 Dec 2003
This review is from: Show World (Audio CD)
'Show World' by Redd Kross is simply the finest album ever. Everything else is a footnote. Furthermore, 'Mess Around' manages to condense everything that is good about music, nay, LIFE in general and condense it into just three minutes of immeasurable joy. Please do yourself a favour and improve your life by 800% merely by purchasing this masterpiece. If you can't enjoy the music encoded on this CD, you should kill yourself as you have no hope. viva Jeff & Steve McDonald, Hawthorne's finest.
