Super fast shipping. Came a day early. Great price for the CD. Loved listening to these guys and was happy to get the album again after I lost my old collection.
It’s hard to find this cd anywhere and I had great memories listening to this one when I was in high school. It was delivered on time and works great.
The CD I bought was a hard to find out of circulation disc. Not only was it like new but arrived at my house in three days. Epic product, Epic service
Only one word can describe a collection of songs like this – stunning. Sprung Monkey are a band of amazing musical talent, without filling each song with 3 minutes of guitar solos. It’s not just the quality of songs that impresses, it’s the sheer diversity which is virtually without equal. From the poppy, Red Hot Chilli Peppers sounding “Get ‘Em Outta Here” through the anthemic “Super Breakdown” and mellow acoustic title track to the hard rock of “Dead”, there’s barely a weak song. The only criticism I’d direct is at “White Trash”, and even then it’s still better than a lot of bands could produce. They’re always willing to try something a little bit different from the average rock band, and the more you listen to these songs, the more you appreciate the strength and depth of the sound. Superb.
