A Brilliant Brilliant Band,
This review is from: Kleptomania (Audio CD)
Mansun-Well, what can i say?
By far my fav band of the 90's, Attack Of The Grey Lantern is a damn classic.
I, like every other Mansun fan out there was delighted when told about the news of Parlophne releasing the "lost" 4th album-"Kleptomania", and i'm not dissapointed.
The album is as good as i expected it to be, though most of the songs are bare bones, unfinished here and there-but it's just as good if not better than most of the indie darlings of today.
"Slipping Away", "Love Remains", "Home" and "Wanted So Much" are my personal stand-outs.
Disc 2 of this 3 CD Digi-Pack contains just about all of Mansun's B-sides.And as any Mansun fan will tell you, there B-Sides we're just as good as most bands A-Sides!!
"Drastic Sturgeon" and "The Holy Blood And The Holy Grail' are left out-which is a little dissapointing but a cracking CD never the less.
In a lot of cases Record Company's release a bands B-Sides and you know 80% of the material on there will be quite poor.
But this compilation of B-sides from Mansun makes a great album on it's own.
Disc 3 is a bonus disc with bits and bats."Secrets" and "It's Ok" are stunning!
Mansun we're brilliant.If i was to describe why this band are so important to me-it would take a long time.
Just buy the album and prepare to listen to one of the best British Bands of the past 20 years
