Chumbawamba delivers again!

Was doing some idle web browsing about a week ago when I discovered that Chumbawamba was releasing a new album, 'Abcdefg,' and having been a fan since they hit the radio with 'Tubthumping' (later discovering their earlier works and loving those just as much), I jumped on this purchase as soon as it became available. If you expect this to be like 'Tubthumper' or 'WYSIWYG,' you're probably not familiar with what they've been doing. Since those albums, they've removed most of the electric instruments and now do acoustic, folky, and sometimes acapella tunes. Despite this change, they still deliver a great listening experience, with plenty of catchy tunes. If any other band tried not limiting themselves to the genre people know them for, I think it likely they'd fail hard. Chumbawamba, on the other hand, has always made great, listenable, and catchy music regardless of the style in which they did it, whether it be their initial punk style, their later pop-influenced style, or their current acoustic-folk style. They may be a 'one hit wonder' band in many people's eyes, but it's clear they don't care and are even willing to poke fun at themselves, as on 'Torturing James Hetfield:'

"Now look what we've brought for you, James/Your favorite disc/It's Chumawamaba/Their Greatest Hits (There's only one)..."

In short, I'd highly recommend this album if you've been a fan, if you once were a fan, or really, if you like music. Chumbawamba hasn't let me down once yet when it comes to entertainment. Having listened through this album three times now, that record remains unbroken.

Also recommended by Chumbawamba: 'Showbusiness,' 'Readymades,' 'Un,' and 'A Singsong and a Scrap.'

Surprising..

I just was taking a glance after seeing this album in my alerts, and it's...surprisingly good. Chumbawamba has made a very catchy folksy album, definitely worth a look at. So far The Devil's Interval is my favorite track.

Biography

Formed: 1984 in Leeds, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Formed in a squat in Leeds, England, in 1984, the anarchist pop group Chumbawamba were a most unlikely mainstream success story. After more than a decade in relative obscurity, much of it spent attacking the very notion of stardom, the band signed to a major label in 1997 and quickly scored a major international hit with the riotous single "Tubthumping." The single would prove to the band's commercial peak, even though Chumbawamba continued issuing politically aware albums (many of them featuring...
