A Vs Monkey Kong is brilliant!
I know this CD very well having listen to it over the internet, A's catching teen punk fun rock in all their CD's makes them a brilliant band and this CD does not fail to please. Even with their existance in the music world being a little on the small side, in my opinion A is quite clearly and unfortunately the best kept secret of british bands. I just think they came around to early and were always ahead of their time. Their music is quite literally undeniably brilliant. The lyrics speak to anyone who wants either a laugh, a good joke or even catchy lines! Songs like monkey kong, Old folkes and in other CD's I love lake Tahoe, Nothing, Starbucks, Sing-a-long and Number 1 are brilliant and these are just a handful. So go online, find and buy their music and enjoy it! Blatently a topping 10/10 band and 10/10 CDRead full review
Great CD. Brilliant Debut
This is one of those CDs I need to have in my CD collection. This is now my 3rd copy due to losing it twice. I love this album. Upbeat and fun, much better than their later attempts. I would recommend it to anyone who likes pop punk music.
A Vs Monkey Kong
I first bought this album back in 2000 after hearing I Love Lake tahoe, and since then Ive loved 'a'. You need to listen to this album more than once to get the greatness of this album, cheeky lyrics like " Im not cool britania, not getting any younger, they hate me at NME ", " The old folks are losers, they cant work computers, they die in December Time". 1.
