Don't listen to anyone who says this isn't as good as "It's Great When You're Straight". This album is, in my opinion, superior to the first Black Grape effort.
The lyrics are funnier and the album doesn't have any low points. I think that although IGWYS is an excellent album, tracks like "Shake well Before Opening" and "Little Bob" are a bit of a let down and don't seem tp go anywhere.
"Stupid......" does take a bit longer to grow on you but once it does you won't be able to stop playing it. The lyrics, especially in "Dadi Was a Badi" will have you chuckling for years to come.
Don't take any notice of the comments from the other reviewer who gave it 1 star, take my word for it, this is Ryder at his best.

This is by far the cheekiest album in my collection and I love it to bits. If you want to listen to an album that will have you smiling from start to finish and occasionally chuckling too then this is the one. It's not a record that asks to be taken too seriously, so don't, or you'll be writing one star reviews in no time!! Not necessarily the most intellectual lyrics, or the most technically accomplished music, this is just a band having a good time doing what they do best. Why not join the party?

Not sure what the extreme 1 and 5 star reviews are about - this is a decent album, simple as that.
'Get Higher', with it's hilarious mock sampling of Ronald Reagan, is a cracking opening single. Elsewhere 'Dadi Was A Badi' is funny, and contains the catchiest chorus on the album. The other standout track, featuring several of the most comically contrived couplets, is 'Lonely'.
The record is dominated by Shaun Ryder's smutty and often silly lyrics, but it's hard to not to find them amusing.
(And I should really give it an extra star for the fun of the goggle eyes protruding from the front of the cover!)

A bit disappointed with the package as the plastic cover was broken

Was this the 'difficult second album?' - in my opinion ...no! it's certainly different - but that's Ryder for ya! It sounds to me that its been made with even more humour than usual - if that was ever possible. 'Get higher' is one the best tracks Shaun's ever done! - that is sayin' somethin'!!!

"Stupid Stupid Stupid" was the second album by Black Grape and saw the band running out of original ideas just as Shaun Ryder's previous band the Happy Mondays had done after the release of their epic album "Pills, Thrills and Bellyaches". The album is really average at best whereas its predecessor was one of the musical highlights of the decade. The problem with the album is that it copies the sound of it's predecessor only it's less focussed, has no depth, the lyrics are not as sharp and one finds the production faltering. The album is full of tracks that wouldn't have even been considered for inclusion on their brilliant debut album although "Spotlight", "Tell Me Something" and "Words" may have come close. Overall the album is average at best and sounds worse when its compared to the brilliance of their debut album.
