iTunes Review

By this point the band had been completely adopted by the acid house scene and the love was quickly reciprocated. Rave culture was already wild but it took a writer like Shaun Ryder to put the whole movement into words, which he did in “Rave On”: “Need a massive boogie ‘til we all pack out!” Club music was kind of an odd fit for the Mondays, whose tastes ran toward Funkadelic, Captain Beefheart, and American rap music, but the two camps found common ground in hedonism.
