Format: Audio CD
Okay so it's not a 'proper' album but when did Mansun ever release a proper album anyway('Little Kix' excluded)? The sheer inventiveness of this truly under-rated band never deserted them. Though the booklet provided tells of 'sluggish' and 'uninspired' sessions there is no evidence of this as 'Getting Your Way', at the start of c.d.1, stampedes with gusto and absolute balls out confidence. 'Slipping Away' is officially the last ever single and it is more than worthy but 'Love Remains' would have been a killer punch of a follow up. It is a tragedy that this song will never be on the radio play list where it belongs. It's the best single Mansun have never released.
These 'what ifs...' are hard to shake off with the knowledge that there is no band around right now to promote this, the album is unfinished (apparantly) and, hardest of all to swallow at first, one band member (Stove) is completely absent from the first c.d. and much of the third with not much in the way of explanation.
Despite this c.d.1 (for that is the fourth album I have been waiting four years for) is the 2nd best Mansun album of them all behind 'Six' and I urge you to buy it (though I feel I'm preaching to the converted). It is much better than any fan could reasonably have expected at a perfectly formed 11 tracks.
After the sheer blinding brilliance of the forth album we get a second c.d. which compiles the best of the fourteen e.p.s the band released between 1995 and 2001. How could this c.d. fail? Let's take just one of these tracks - 'My Idea Of Fun' b side to 'I Can Only Disappoint U'. It is impossible not to be seduced by this raunchy stomper. Paul Draper's voice (completely unlike any other) is utilised as a musical instrument as he takes us on a rollercoaster ride through the psyche of the deranged.

Mansuns backcatalogue is extremely good, especially Six. This was released some time after the bands break up, and contains 3 cd's - one of which was supposed to be their fourth album, and the other 2 contain odds and ends. Reading the sleeve notes you'd be forgiven that the fourth album was unfinished and rubbish.
Well, actually, it's extremely good. They could have easily released the 4th album on its own with no complaints from Mansun fans. The other 2 cd's are packed with great stuff too. Not everything sounds great on first listen, but that's typical for Mansun stuff - sit back and listen again, and you'll love it.
This is great value for money, great quality music from a great band. C'mon guys, get back together!

I do agree that many people will dismiss this CD as probably not that good as it wasnt a complete album and was released after the split. But that's their loss!
The songs don't really sound like their 'earlier' material as reported, but more a progression from Little Kix. Many people would argue that CD1 is just as good,if not stronger than Little Kix. Its amazing how great these latest songs are seeing that most of them are in an incomplete state!
At the very least, this compilation is great value.Although listening to CD1, it still makes you wonder why they called it quits at the time they did.
All the best Paul Draper in your future ventures

Mansun a rock outfit who have sadly departed the music scene recently offer a truly great parting gift to fans.3 cds full of real pop rock gems.A truly innovative and original band,this collection pulls together their long lost last album along with many of the old eps,b sides and rare material.
It goes without saying that this collection is a absolute must for any mansun fan or anybody who loves really great tunes!!!!.

Erratic and brilliant, energetic and ultimately self-destructive, Mansun imploded while recording what evidently would have been a triumphant return to the form of the sublime 'Attack of the Grey Lantern', easily one of the very best albums of the 1990s.

The hitherto lost 4th album turns out to be a true treasure, containing much material as good as anything the band has released previously and a lot that could be considered even better.

Mansun seemed to have everything going for them except perhaps for genuine self-confidence. Paul Draper has an amazing gift for melody and Dominic Chad is a fine guitarist, and they had excellent back-up on bass and drums. All these qualities are on ample display in this collection.

'Six' was somewhat perverse and 'Little Kix' too safe but tracks like 'Cry 2 My Face' (which Draper in his extensive liner notes dismisses as 'rough') are accomplished and spontaneous and could, one imagines, easily be released as is and ride the charts.

The 4th album overall displays a new level of maturity in the songwriting and playing without foregoing the sheer exuberance that still makes 'Attack' such an enjoyable album to listen to after all these years. Unlike 'Little Kix', it doesn't ever feel over-produced.

To think that a wonderful song like 'Cry 2 My Face' and so much else may never have seen the light of day.

This album is proof that Mansun still had plenty of mileage in them. As far as unfinished albums go, this is fantastic and should have been finished with a proper, promoted commercial release.

This album isn't an entirely new direction, more a much needed progression from "Little Kix" which, although it had its moments and some great ones at that, was mostly diet-Mansun if there is such a thing.

At the time "Little Kix" was released, I commented that it should have had a short, fast single like "Being a Girl", well this album has "Love Remains" which ticks those boxes and then some. Promoted correctly, it would have easily given Mansun a massive, massive hit single. I'm not just saying that it would have made a good single, it really would have been the PINNACLE of Mansun's singles at that point. If you haven't heard it, then I suggest you do and you will believe what I'm saying here.

Elsewhere, "Home" and "Wanted So Much" are also parallel-universe singles. "Slipping Away" stands alongside "Legacy" as one of their finest moments and "No Signal/No Complaints" could have easily sat on "Six".

The best way to sum up this album is to say it sounds exactly like "Little Kix" should have sounded i.e. "Home" is like "Fool", only better, "Fragile" is like "Love is...", only better and so forth. Tears for Fears and Depeche Mode are evoked when necessary which is always a good thing.

It's definitely worth paying the seemingly high price for the first disc alone and if that isn't enough, you get another 2 CDs' worth of similarly sterling material which I could go on and write a few more paragraphs about but I'll leave that to someone else...
