Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The Soup Dragon's only commercially successful release, Lovegod was a definitive album of a short-lived but blissful movement in alternative dance that began in the late '80s and ended in the early '90s. Lead with fellow Scotsmen Primal Scream and other proto-trip-hop bands like the Happy Mondays, the Charlatans U.K., the Stone Roses, and the Farm, the scene revolved around community--masses joined in various forms of often chemically enhanced euphoric states, dancing till breakfast and beyond. Like Primal Scream's Screamadelica, this album follows a path clearly cut by the Rolling Stones. Their hazy, blues-on-Ecstasy psychedelic grooves fueled the club-going shoe gazers swaying in place for what could have been forever, while at the same time uplifted souls (and soles) with money-maker shakers like "Backwards Dog" and a cover of the Stones' "I'm Free." Because of its combination of timeless rock influences and its preturntablism dance sensibility, Lovegod has aged well, losing little of its capacity for elation. --Beth Massa

The music on this album is ace! However this Disc is FAKE!. The level of the music is very low [even by 80.s CD levels] My home taped copy sounds better [BASF c90 metal, Dolby C] which i done on my mam.s cheap tower hi-fi [Amstrad i think?]. The case and artwork seem real? The printing on disc is not + no Record Label No. on play side. Anyway rant over it's the music that matters not the format and the music is PROPER GOOD!!! Rave On....

Even better than Hang Ten. This import of Lovegod brings back lots of memories. With all songs in a more psychadelic theme than the Soup's previous albums. The best song on the album is Im Free (brilliant video). It's a shame the Soup Dragons broke up...

This album is a fantastic fusion of laid back reggae/rock steady beats, mixed up with some of the liveliest pop beats you'll here in a long time. Kinda like The Pixies - Doolittle meets Bob Marley's early days, with a little new wave thrown in.
If you looking for some laid back, chilled out, pool side sundowners vibes, then this is a 'must have'.

I must admit I was a fan when this was released, and it was a typical album of the time. The songs are not the strongest element, but their not the weakest. The production and sounds on this album make it sound terribly dated compared to other albums of the era. There's a version of "I'm Free" (Jagger/Richards) and various samples from the Monkees "Head". Provides little more than a early 90's UK nostalgia trip.

HASH(0x92989c90) out of 5 stars Soup Dragons - 'Lovegod' (Island) 10 Jan. 2012
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Looks to be the Scottish alternative / indie band's third CD. From the appearance of the CD's cover - some might mistake this title to be a psychedelic title. But it's not, it's actually a worthy alternative / indie rock piece. Tunes I liked best were their album opener - a Rolling Stones cover, mind you of "I'm Free", "Mother Universe", the inspiring title cut "Lovegod", "Kiss The Gun" and "Beauty Freak". Line-up: Sean Dickson - guitar, programmer & vocals, Sushi Dade - bass, Jim McCulloch - guitar & vocals and Paul Quinn - drums. Should draw in fans of Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Primal Scream, Jesus Jones and The Buzzcocks.

HASH(0x9299824c) out of 5 stars Sure, It's Derivative, But Also Lots Of Fun 2 May 2010
By kabalabonga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Making a positive adjustment to the rapidly changing nature of the "Alternative" scene in Great Britain was perhaps the greatest talent of the Soup Dragons, whose first two releases ("Hang Ten" and 'This Is Our Art") were deft explorations of aggressive post-punk and punk-pop music, respectively. Whether intentionally casting about for the "Next Great Thing" or not, the band soon emerged as a poppier, hook-laden spear-carrier of the "Madchester" scene, and began their third incarnation as a guitar-driven band selling the scene's big stinky grooves with catchy percussion, clever sequencer programming, superficial yet shout'em back lyrics, and the warm, deep richness of lead singer Sean Dickson's vocals.

And lest you think I'm some sort of elitist urban sophisticate mourning the death of college radio and its emphasis on the insularity of its scene (rather than the all-embracing universality of Modern Rock stations replacing them as Corporate America warmed up to the potential for some pioneering, previously independent bands to shift major units), let me make it quite clear that I am not dismissive of what the Soup Dragons accomplished with this release; this is at least the second time in the past 20 years that I've replaced a worn-out copy of "Lovegod". Even without the ubiquitous "I'm Free" in heavy rotation during the early fall of 1990, this CD contained a number of other supercharged dance-floor tracks ("Drive the Pain", "Backwards Dog", and "Sweetmeat") that made it a flagship release of the nascent Modern Rock Radio Scene here in the US, with "Softly", "Mother Universe", and "Lovegod" all getting airtime as well. 'Lovegod" is loaded with melodic, psychedelically-tinged tunes that are well-formed, highly danceable, and pleasing to listen to, and I'd stack any of them up against the death-laughs-forever, world won't listen, fashionably alienated pseudo-heavy-metal masquerading as modern rock today. If you're even thinking about getting this, don't think; just buy. You will not regret it.

HASH(0x9260cbdc) out of 5 stars Amazing Album 28 Nov. 2006
By Stantz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not sure where the two negative reviews come from other than that the other songs on this album are not straight imitations of I'm Free. Every single one of these songs is superb, to the point where you can't believe so many great songs might go on one album. It amazes me that they never hit any greater popularity in the US than their well-known single, and I urge you to pick it up (bargain bin if you're lucky, despite what one reviewer wrote) and give it a full listen. It's brilliant.

HASH(0x92f2c344) out of 5 stars Great flashback value 1 Jun. 2007
By Travis Illig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this because I used to listen to it in high school and have great memories associated with it. My wife's class song was this version of "I'm Free," if you believe that.

For that reason, I love it. But if I look past the memories and really listen to it, it's mediocre and fairly repetitive. Once you've heard "I'm Free" and "Sweetmeat," you've heard the album.

Great flashback value, though.

HASH(0x9298d0c0) out of 5 stars Good listening with a psychedelic edge. 12 Mar. 2007
By Margaret Lang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm no expert on this band's history. I basically wanted their version of "I'm Free" to upload. Everything else is decent. It keeps you moving with a back to the 60's (that really happened in the 70's) beat, and my 14 yo kids like it.
