Customer Reviews

Buy Bummed

Ignore the other two reviewers -who display a shocking level ignorance. The Mondays were and remain one of the finest bands this country has ever produced. The real problem with this compilation is the absence of tracks from Bummed (Performance is one of their finest cuts) and the desperate attempt to pretend that later tracks such as Boys are Back in Town are anywhere near as powerful as W.F.L. Still a good place to start however.

Great! but only buy three tracks

The songs are great - but there is only need to buy 3 them. save money, and get step on, hallelujah and 24 hour party people - and use the money saved to buy the a greatest hits album of one of the other Factory Records discoveries with a much wider range of great hits; New Order.

Brilliant, brilliant album

I can't praise this album highly enough; from Shaun Ryder's abstract, poetic lyrics, notably present on songs such as W.F.L. or Lazyitis, to the massive mix of different instruments and sounds they use, which produce an amazing experimental album which goes in all sorts of different directions, all at once. Buy it, right now.
