I bought this purely for 'The Time Is Now' and having now listened to the whole album I think it remains the stand out track ( I could listen to that bass line all day).
All of the songs are very individual and so might not please anybody all of the time. I still find myself skipping to my favourites (including 'mother' - quirky but great spiteful lyrics).
Perhaps I'm being impatient and this one will turn out to be a bit of a 'grower'.

You will either love this album or hate it with passion...I LOVE IT! It's dark, bewildering and very weird. I bought this because I loved 'The Time is Now' and haven't looked back since...If you loved 'Pure Pleasure Seeker' then I would guess you'd like this! Final Note -THIS CD ROCKS!

A once in a lifetime experience. Moloko are so good you want to breathe them in and not let go. You'll remember this album when you're in your seventies. No bull, not being trendy, it's that good.

Ok, so I clearly dont like this, infact the only reason I have given it 2 stars is becasue of "The time is now" and "Sing it back" brings it back from a dismal 1. So Ive only listened to this two or three times but I simply can't get into it. One of the tracks sounds so 80's with a distinct keyboard sound Axel F would have been proud of. All I say is be very careful before purchase, infact if you can, borrow someone elses for your own opinion.

I have to say that I may have bought this on a hunch that I now regret. I loved 'The time is Now' and 'Sing it Back' but the rest of the album leaves me a little bewildered. I suppose 'Absent Minded Friends' is also good but for the rest I just can't seem to get into it. It perhaps appeals to a tates a little more abstract then mine or more open minded but I wouldn't call it easy listening. Try and listen to it before you buy it!

I bought this to replace a lost copy. It was great to hear it again. A classic!

Me too ! I bought this after hearing the great tracks "The time is now" and "Sing it back" really looking forward to hearing great dance tracks.... No way !! Perhaps it's just me, but I didn't get this album at all! What happened to her great voice? Where are the dance tracks? Weird isn't the word here...

Oops! What have we here?
I'm afraid to say I was another idiot who bought this on the back of "The Time Is Now" and the fantastic "Sing It Back". This abstract concoction, thought, has left me somewhat bewildered
Moloko are weird. Very weird, and this is reflected in their music. I got as far as "Pure Pleasure Seeker" before skipping to the singles, simply because the tracks are so obscure. Admittedly, Pure Pleasure Seeker is growing on me and aside from the two favourites mentioned earlier, only Absent Minded Friends deserves the slightest mention.
For real music, please scroll up and down the Amazon charts until you find "Behind The Sun" by Chicane, "Vertigo" by Groove Armada or "Remedy" by Basement Jaxx. At this point, purchase the first of those three that you find, and feel free to grin inanely.
"Things To Make And Do" gets 2 stars from me on the strength of it's fantastic singles alone.
