If you're reading this review you will already know the main album contained here. I liked the album then and had it on vinyl so, on seeing this release I thought to myself "look at all those extra tracks!" and bought this! Well the album is still how I remember it but this is another Cherry Red "Let's max the volume on the CD so much that we leave no dynamics left!" I still keep buying these Cherry Red re-masters but have to say that there are only a few that are any good. The extra tracks are OK (Still mastered too loud) so I didn't waste the money on this 2 cd set but this release could and should have sounded good too!

Note to Cherry Red: I think we all have volume control on whatever system that any individual will be playing this CD on. If I turn up the volume on a well mastered CD I keep the original dynamic range of the CD AND get loud music! Why do you insist on compressing the hell out of the master to make it ear bleedingly loud before you press the CD? That dynamic range is lost forever ;-(

This is a front-runner for the best album ever. I've had it since it was released (1996), and have never tired of it's catchy tunes and ironic and witty lyrics. Louise Wener is fabulous as the lead singer, and delivers the lyrics in a velvety and silky manner. A definite must-buy for anyone who was a 1990's britpop fan - it'll make you wonder why you ever moved on!

This is an album that represents a high point for Sleeper. Louise Wener is a good songwriter with a strong vocal presence. She wrestles with her relationships with wit and a wry sense of irony. Playful and there are a few tracks that really resonate from your speakers.
Good jagged guitars, some synthetic sounds. Stephen Street was the producer. Clear bass, and punchy drums. You will not be disappointed by this released just as Britpop climaxed!

I got hold of this cd because it was very cheap and I never got around to getting it when it came out, despite being into lots of Sleepers contemparies. Although it isn't amazing and I suspect that you need to remember the britpop era to appreciate it, I was surprised at how many songs i liked. Its got to be worth the couple of quid for a listen anyway.

There is no other way to describe it. The album is almost operatic in its continuity: each song perfectly compliments the next, and yet stands out as a magnificent song in its own right. Even the beginning and ending are well thought out. Every time I listen to it, I love it more.
