"Two years before Catatonia exploded in popularity, this debut album was released. The style is similar to their next two albums, if a little more intricate here. It doesn't show the all-round quality of 'International Velvet' (and Cerys somehow doesn't sound quite as Welsh here as she's sounded on their recent stuff!) but this CD does have some gems.'You've got a lot to answer for', 'Sweet catatonia' and 'Way beyond blue' are the highlights of early Catatonia. 'You've got a lot...' is the best, as we witness Cerys at her most humorous as she sings us through the scenario of a possible pregnancy: 'My DNA'll be past it's sell-by date...'. Sweet - check this album out."
Melodic pop-rock at its finest

"I often wonder why terrific British bands such as Catatonia never reach the United States. Is it due to bad promotional techniques or the lack there of? Then I wonder why such bland, nondescript music coming out of the American market is successful, i.e Googoo Dolls,Machbox 20, Fastball etc. What happened to melody? I wish I knew.Living in Britain, I came across Catatonia, a Welsh band, who's female lead singer posesses a childish, yet coarse voice which make her vocals bittersweet and unique. The compositions are second to none. The opening track of "Way Beyond Blue" is "Lost Cat"; a charming pop song which contains some of the best harmonies I've heard since the Beatles. This album is pop-rock at its finest and is full of a balance of raw-edged tunes with lush melodies and harmony with great ballads as well: there's something exciting about this music. Its too bad that most American music fans are oblivious to such a wonderful group as Catatonia."
