5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 7 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Six (Audio CD)
Well what can you say about this album.
Its probably the most intelligent album from any band in the late 90's. To those that don't understand it then it is a pity because this has everything! A guitarist pulling off amazing sounds, operatic vocals. Brilliant philosophical lyrics concerning life, the universe and everything. Dont forget drumming and bass playing the tightest Mansun ever produced. I defy anyone with musical taste to not thoroughly enjoy this. Think Pink floyd updated for the nineties, ITS THAT GOOD! Some songs would have benefitted from cutting down such as "six" and "shotgun". Although the "six" single version got remixed by Arthur Baker of New Order fame and is worth tracking down. Much more concise and structured. Beneath all the effects these are brilliant pop songs play by Northerners deranged on L.S.D and god knows what else. Legacy reached number 7 in the charts and it's a depressing song because it's real and not manafactured and about life. If you enjoy trippy ambient soundscapes then you WILL ENJOY THIS. And you owe it to yourself to own this. Forget what NME said about this band because they were just jealous of Mansun's talent and never backed them. Paul Draper was probably too outspoken for his own good but with music to believe in like this who cares? At the time of its release he said it would be the best thing to come out in years and this didn't make him any friends in the press and attracted lots of claims of pretentiousness from untalented journalists.
Mansun slipped up with Little Kix although it still had great songs "Unitil the next life " being the best.
BUY IT, LISTEN, YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED
