A timely reissue of a surreal, funky, profane, and perversely joyous album, overflowing with casual eclecticism and giddy humour.

Working with a band looser and grittier than the Mondays, Shaun Ryder sounded reinvigorated, creating bizarre rhymes that tied together junk culture, drug lingo, literary references, and utter nonsense. Even better, the music had deep grooves and catchy pop hooks that came straight out of left field. ‘It's Great…’ is filled with music that goes in unconventional directions without ever sounding forced.

*** The cd version contains a bonus disc of live tracks from the Brixton Academy gig in 1996 and B-Sides with remixes from the artists such as Goldie. Also featured is a bonus DVD with official music videos and iconic performances on ‘Jools Holland’ and ‘Top Of The Pops’ ***
