"Two Worlds Collide" was the only hit from this CD, but there are several other really good songs on here as well. If you were a high school or college student back in the early 90s, this is bound to bring back some memories.

(Four and a half stars) Their best album

"Basically with the very solid "Revenge of the Goldfish," the Inspiral Carpets combined the best aspects of their buoyant retro-sounding debut album, "Life," and their more serious weightier second album, "The Beast Inside." Start to finish, "Revenge" is exciting, and a pleasure to listen to. I especially like four songs: "Generations," "I'm Not Your Saviour," "Smoking Her Clothes," and "Two Worlds Collide," which I consider four of the band's all-time best. The first two mentioned need almost be listened to together in order to fully appreciate each. Along with "Smoking Her Clothes" the band demonstrates tremendous vitality, with fine lyrics and great vocal and organ work. "Two Worlds Collide," has an almost apocalyptic feel to it, and is easily the band's most interestingly unique song.

While there are other British bands from this period that I like better -- i.e. The Stone Roses, Charlatans, Verve, Ride, Catherine Wheel -- "Revenge of the Goldfish," which is the Inspiral Carpets at their best, stands up as among the better albums from the British groups of this era. No other post-1960s band has used a retro-sounding organ so effectively as Inspiral organist Clint Boon did. Plus, Tom Hingley's vocal work really stands out here, and is quite different from those other Ian Brown (Stone Roses) sounding front-men."

"Even after a few years, this album still sounds great to my ears. I recall the day I heard "Dragging me down" on a "Live to Air" radio broadcast from a local bar a radio station I grew up listening to over the border in Toronto was doing and it was a great tune. From then on I purchased this album and have been a fan ever since, other notable tracks on this album which in my opinion are solid are "Two Worlds Collide, Bitches Brew and Disappeared." I would definitely suggest if you are a fan of the alternative movement from the 90s this should be included in your library of CDs."
