Album Review

If you liked the Cribs, the Pigeon Detectives, and the Automatic, the chances are that this album was also on the shopping list. Unfortunately, it got rather lost and even with three singles released, only one of which reached the Top 40, it could not break into corresponding high positions on its chart, spending just one week at number 42. The three singles released were "Out of the Question," "She's Got You High," and "What Would Steve Do." "These Things Move in Threes," although featuring reasonably melodic singing, had too much screaming feedback whenever James "Noo" New's guitar was the prominent instrument. "Song B" was a Wall of Sound although the band remained in control, the crashing drums at the end of each verse allowing the vocal to be heard. There was, however, a rather strange interlude in the middle where the song went off on a complete tangent, and it seemed to have two endings when the song was finished, but the band wanted to continue with some further feedback effects. "Light Up This Room" was the band's token ballad on the album, which they really shouldn't have attempted as New's voice didn't suit the style at all. The album ended with a seven-minute track "Down Down Down," mostly instrumental which was given time to build and develop and, consequently, was the most interesting track on the whole album. Shame it ended there.

Customer Reviews

Unique!

With their own sound, The Mumm-Ra are an excellent band demenstrating their ability across this magnificiant album. I first come across this band through NME. So many bands which don't deserve the limelight are in the media all the time, but truthfully if you sit down and listen to this album it is an excellent debut and it is much better than alot of other stuff out there so jump off the bandwagon and have a listen to these because you surely will be impressed....If not amazed.

I Love Mumm-Ra!

This is a great debut album. I love 'Noo's' down to earth lyrics, mixed in with beautiful pop. Take She's got you high and starlight, for instance. Then theres just the great pop songs that is Out Of The Question and What Would Steve Do?. They are amazing

Excellent Debut

Excellent album. Don't get the NME and frankly don't care what they say but, along with Polytechnic, represent a really refreshing new sound. Too many influences to name (which I can pick up). Well worth a listen.
