Customer Review

on 12 October 2003
This is the 'Prunes first album. The only tracks mentioned on the sleeve of the vinyl original are 'I had Too Much To Dream Last Night' and 'Get Me To the World On Time.' These two are garage/psych classics and will ensure the bands place in many peoples hearts. The fact they are the only tracks listed should serve as a warning. Most of the other tracks, sadly, are dire. A few songs such as 'Bangles' or 'Are You loving Me (But Enjoying It Less)' deserve to be along side those two songs. However it is difficult to belive the same writting team that gave us 'I Had Too Much To Dream' also wrote 'Onie'or 'The Toonervile Trolley.' The band themselves were unhappy with a lot of the material (it seems they were pushed into recording songs by outside writers). Other albums famously didn't include any of the band. In 2001 the original members reformed and released 'Artifact' pointedly refering to it as their 3rd album, despite the amount of releases put out under the 'Electric Prunes' moniker. 'Artifact' is superb. Unless your a 'must have every note ever released' type invest in that CD and a compilation. (some of the most recent ones are aproved by the band and feature tracks they feel reprent them best).
