STATUS QUO Famous In The Last Century (2000 UK 17-track CD album featuring a selection of cover versions released to celebrate the millennium including the single releases Mony Mony & Old Time Rock And Roll complete with picture bookletinlay)
There has to be at least a touch of self-parody in the title Famous In The Last Century, but it's also undeniably a perfect description of the music within. Rejected by UK radio on all fronts and reviled by the music press, Quo strike back by sticking to their guns and doing exactly what they've always done--rabble-rousing, no-frills, twelve-bar boogies par excellence. Depending on your point of view, this adds up either to serious brain damage or to an affirmation of the timeless virtues of good old rock & roll. What can't be denied is that Quo know exactly what they're doing and they do it better than anybody else currently on the block, pile-driving their way through 14 acknowledged rock classics including "Rave On", "Memphis Tennessee", "Mony Mony" and "Runaround Sue". The whole enterprise is given a slight conceptual feel by being book-ended by two versions of the title track, the only new song on the collection, which hails "the way the music used to be". Say no more. --Johnny Black

I dont agree at all,i think it's a really fun album.
Actually i'd go as far as saying i prefer this to some original quo albums,and yes i'm a long time fan,its just fun to listen too and makes me feel good!
Because these are all classic songs there isn't really a bad track on here,a couple i'm not overly keen on but that's the songs themselves,nothing to do with quo.
Production on this is a big plus point,it's really nice and bold,almost with a live sound to it which in my opinion makes this one of the best sounding quo albums.
Not a cd to listen to seriously but for a great toe tappin' air guitarn' time this can't be beat.
In summary, Famous In The Last Century is the Blue Nun compared to the Champagne of the Quo's classic output. It's ok, but you know that they're capable of a lot better.
Songs to watch out for: Roll Over Beethoven, Old Time Rock N Roll, Way Down, Mony Mony, Rock N Me, Once Bitten Twice Shy
If you love Quo buy it, if you hate Quo buy it you won't be disappointed.
