Beauty Sleep
Beauty Sleep
"A beautiful album, which contains the outstanding monkey song, 'Moonbeam Monkey'. Listening to Tanya sing is like listening to the sound of your own heart"

"Look! A whole album dedicated to monkeys! Any album featuring lines like 'Do the monkey boogie, orang-utango, baboon' is good, in my book."

"I bought this album on the strength of the excellent 'Foghorn', and was mostly disappointed by the rest of the songs. However, it did add yet another MONKEY song to my collection, with 'Cheeky Monkey'"
The Colour and the Shape

"Undoubtedly their best album to date. 'Monkey Wrench' rocks."

"'Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey' - I think that says it all. If you haven't heard Kristin before, buy any of her albums, they're all brilliant"
Licensed To Ill
Licensed To Ill
"Featuring that 80s classic, 'Brass Monkey'. Unashamedly sexist, but it was the 80's, and they have changed their tune since them, so I'll forgive them"
Heroes & Villains
Heroes & Villains
"The best cartoon on the telly, and the best soundtrack EVER! Bis, Frank Black, Komeda, Shonen Knife, and Devo's fantastic 'Go Monkey Go'... Mojo Jojo is my god."
Gorillaz

"Okay, I realise that technically a gorilla is an ape, not a monkey. But *you* try finding 10 songs in your collection with monkeys in the title!"
Eight Arms To Hold You
Eight Arms To Hold You
"Featuring the inexplicable, and unforgettable lyric: 'You monkey, you left me'. One of the finest rock albums of the 90s."
King

"'Now when you spin on your head like a monkey'? The rantings of a mad woman, or just very very deep? Tanya obviously has a thing about monkeys, a woman after my own heart."
