Product Description

Product Description

A swirling, neo-psychedelic kaleidoscope of hallucinogenic drugs, trippy beats, borrowed hooks, and veiled threats, Pills 'n' Thrills & Bellyaches is Happy Mondays' masterpiece and the peak of the entire `Madchester' craze. Where the Stone Roses were pop classicists, Happy Mondays pushed pop into the ecstasy age. The Mondays' cut-and-paste rhythms and melodies were clearly influenced by hip-hop and electronic dance music, and their songs had the same sort of twisted internal logic, subverting conventional pop song structures while reinterpreting oldies, occasionally stealing entire songs and claiming them as their own (John Kongos' "He's Gonna Step On You Again" is transformed into "Step On," LaBelle's "Lady Marmalade" provides the basis for "Kinky Afro"). Most of the musical collage is the creation of producers Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne, but the vision of Pills 'n' Thrills & Bellyaches belongs to Shaun Ryder, who reveals himself as a surreally gifted lyricist. Lifting melodies at will, Ryder paints a bizarre vision of modern urban life, fueled by sex, drugs, violence, and dead-end jobs -- and instead of lamenting the state of affairs, he celebrated them. The Collector's edition of Pills `n' Thrills expands the original album on disc one with extended versions and mixes, while the second disc is a DVD that collects all of their videos into a virtual video "Best Of" the band from 1986's `Tart Tart' through to `Judge Fudge' in 1991.

Still a great album after all these years! However I wish the record company would re-release the vinyl again, as my own vinyl is played to death, although I've got the CD now. Maybe not as accessible as the follow up 'Pills, Thrills....', but very catchy, and Shaun's lyrical trickery is at its finest here.

Great album great packaging and sounds as fresh today as it did when released and thankfully the sound on this cd remains pretty much the same as previous incarnations but adds some great extras and a dvd of promos clips...quality.
