This is an album to fall for; I love it and have listened to it again and again. I think it is much easier to say why you really like something than explain why you should love it...but I shall make a brave attempt at the risk of sounding silly (though perhaps this capacity for silliness is our one saving grace).

Musically it is superb. The harmonies are tight as always, the songs mix up sounds, instrumentation and pace in a grand combination of the old and the new to create something that is...close to perfect I think. And these are all great songs: witty, thought-provoking, inspiring by turns. But this alone cannot explain how I fell in love; it takes more than that. I was reading a book by Mervyn Peake the other morning on the train while listening to this for the first time. And I found the following brilliant line in it through some luck of the universe; he says, "It was not often that Flay approved of happiness in others. He saw in happiness the seeds of independence, and in independence the seeds of revolt." And this album contains happiness, the melodies are beautiful and they make my heart sing along. The words are hard and sharp and deep, they speak to life as it is lived and struggle as it is fought, and these words paired so perfectly with such melodies mean even the sad ones bring a smile (of resolve) to my lips. Too many beautiful and happy things signify an escape from reality, an illusion, a simplified version of the world that I find unacceptable and think we'd all be better off for smashing completely. And so those rare instances where you can find something both true and lovely are all the more precious. We need smiles and beauty and happiness, I think we revel too much sometimes in our anger and martyred commitment.

I have 7 Chumbawamba albums in all and all of them are really good and this one is no exception. This is a great album with nice melodies, powerful lyrics and a strong message. I recommend it very much.

Format: Audio CD
Brilliant title on the latest effort from these anarcho-punks turned dance hit superstars turned acoustic folksters. This CD has an interesting twist to it in that most of the songs tend to bleed from one into the next giving the album continuity of an almost cinematic quality. Even though the songs range from sad to bittersweet to whimsical to inspirational there is a coherence due in part to this technique. Now when I tell you there are 25 tunes on this one don't be alarmed. Many are short one minute musical observations (some with sampled sound-bytes that also lend to the overall cinematic montage feel). In fact that is really my only complaint with this album. That it feels like when many of these short songs are just beginning to develop that is when they end. From the a capella "El Fusilado" to the lovely "Unpindownable" to the powerful "Waiting For The Bus" this disc covers a lot of ground. A wonderful pair of musical bookends (akin to the opening and closing credits of a film) provided by the first and last tracks serve to tie up the whole package neatly while still leaving a bit of an open ending to lead into their next release (See what I said about the cinematic feel to this one?). Check it out.
