Editorial Reviews

With their debut album, GOD FODDER, lost in the post-NEVERMIND grunge explosion, Ned's Atomic Dustbin were at something of a crossroads. The GOD FODDER tour had keep the band on the road for much of 1991, and much of the material for this album, their sophomore effort, was written on the road.

"Are You Normal" follows Ned's Atomic Dustbin's formula of success first seen in their debut album "God Fodder:" First, you have the consistent bouncy two bass driven sound with its distinct British sensibility; second you have quirky lyrics that fit perfectly with the tunes.

While my favorite two Ned's songs are both on "God Fodder," ("Selfish" and "Gray Cell Green," which I think are really meant to be heard together), I believe that "Are You Normal" contains more terrific songs than its predecessor. Who can resist the energy of "Walking Through Syrup" - my favorite song on the album - with its infectious chorus ("Here's a prediction/ You get an affliction/ You gain an addiction/ You grab what you can/ Get introduced to a good lady bubblehead/ whe thinks she's seducing Peter Pan")? Other highlights include "Legoland," "Tantrum," "Not Sleeping Around" (a minor hit for the band), "I Don't Want To Do That" (reminiscent of "Happy" from "God Fodder"), "Spring" and "Intact." Overall, the album maintains at a very high level, and is just plain fun to listen to.

FYI: At the end of the first song, "Suave and Sophisticate," the narrator says: "What are they gonna say about him? What are they gonna say? That he was a kind man? That he was a wise man? That he had plans? That he had wisdom? Bull**** man!" This is a direct quote from "Apocalypse Now," spoken by the Dennis Hopper character about Kurtz (brilliantly played by Marlon Brando) after Kurtz dies. I'm kind of surprised no one else brought this up.

God is this CRIMINALLY under-appreciated... I can not believe there has not been a remastering/packaging job yet. It is "feel-good music" at its best; much better than the campy Lemonheads and dour Nirvana records that blocked the view of this gem back in the day.

So... Do we need to get a pettition going for this to be re-issued? Sony, wake up and remaster this. It will cost you nothing compared to the garbage you waste money on.

Ned's Atomic Dustbin is composed of a solid drummer, a trio of bass players(the weakest of the three was forced to play lead guitar instead, but they are all bassists and their playing style shows it) and a lead singer with the voice and emotional scars to perfectly convey the feelings you have pent up inside you as your relationship is crumbling around you. That is pretty much what this cd is all about, but it does so without sounding whiny...it's hard to explain without just quoting the songs, so give the samples a listen. inventive, intelligent twisting of words make the lyrics worth a read by themselves. If you understand that music is emotion made audible, and have been in a bad relationship, you will find a kindred spirit here.

I find it strange that, although I first bought this album when it first came out on the 10th November 1992, I still religously listen to Are You Normal! daily. And each time you'll listen to it sounds completly different, completly. You can't listen to any one song alone because the rest just flow. Before you know it you've listened to the album, ten fold, and then you reach for the single - all of them, from Twenty Three Hour Tooth Ache to Stuck.
This ablum (and the rest) are all 'unsung' and if I won the lottery I pay Neds to perform one more time, (infront of the world), to prove that all there material is the best in the world.

Ned's Atomic Dustbin was one of the more interesting bands to come out of the early 90's Brit-music scene, with their distinctive dual-bass sound. Although they did have a few hit singles, their work was sadly under-appreciated - fading into obscurity even as they grew more diverse and catchy. God Fodder was a good debut, with a couple of killer singles, but overall it was uneven and more interesting than consistently engaging.

Are You Normal improves upon the formula. Again, it has a couple of great singles - Not Sleeping Around, Walking Through Syrup, Who Goes First?. But it's also a little bit more varied. They trade in the "speed-pop" tendencies slightly for a little bit more melody and catchiness. It might have a little less edge to the album, but it has enough to keep it interesting and overall have more memorable songs than on God Fodder. Maybe not as memorable as Grey Cell Green (which is my personal favorite Ned's song). But still very good.

Fortunately, Ned's Atomic Dustbin continue to get even better, as their next album would be their masterpiece Brainbloodvolume. It's a shame their audience didn't stay along for the ride.

There is something about Ned's that is just captivating. They have a truly original sound, interesting lyrics, and are the only band both my brother and I enjoy; we have quite a different taste in music. Ned's is great. And Are You Normal is Ned's greatest.
