The veteran English sextet's follow up to 1993's Laid is way more fun than the title might suggest. Skillfully blending the band dual folk pop and dance music fascinations, the album revs up high with the towering "She's a Star." The band then ebulliently plows through various alternative pop styles, from the jungle inflected Green Peace to the Pixies-esque Go to the Bank to the techno pop anthem Avalanche. -Natalie Nichols, Times-Post News Service
