5.0 out of 5 stars The other good Mondays album..., 2 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Bummed (Audio CD)
Taking their name from New Order's 'Blue Monday' (actually poking fun at that song), the Happy Mondays literally invented Madchester before the Roses, Oasis or anyone else appeared on the scene. Reading about the Monday's little adventures on holiday or on tour is always a delight - a rock and roll band that actually railed against normal rock music.
This album is packed with huge drums, reverb soaked guitars and funky basslines that are guaranteed to light up the day. If that wasn't enough, Shaun ("the Poet") Ryder's lyrics are hilarious, delivered in a kind of sneer not seen since Johnny Rotten hung up his safety pins.
And how can you beat songs like 'Performance', 'Brain Dead' and (especially) 'Wrote for Luck'? Well...you could go and release something like 'Pills 'n Thrills 'n Bellyaches' I suppose...thats how great the Mondays were. If you want three classic albums, pick up this, 'Pills 'n Thrills' and Black Grape's 'It's Great When You're Straight, Yeah!' - proof that Ryder & co should be viewed as the saviors of music that they rightfully were.
...Well, maybe not Bez...
