Cool As [CD/DVD] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
In May 2003, Mute issued a definitive three-disc Inspiral Carpets retrospective to coincide with the band's round of U.K. club and festival dates. In addition to a greatest-hits disc, the set featured a second disc with rarities and exclusive tracks, as well as a DVD of videos and live footage. Cool As was certainly quite the complete package, but it didn't see a release date outside of the U.K. Mute has remedied that oversight by releasing its Greatest Hits portion as an abbreviated Carpets retrospective. The album is perfect for fans who rest somewhere between Madchester reminiscence and completist fanaticism. Every great single is here, including "Joe," "She Comes in ...

The album is perfect for fans who rest somewhere between Madchester reminiscence and completist fanaticism. Every great single is here, including "Joe," "She Comes in the Fall," "Dragging Me Down," and the Mark E. Smith duet version of "I Want You." The 1995 Mute release Singles included all of this, too. But Greatest Hits ups the ante with "Come Back Tomorrow," a great lost track built around a Tommy James-styled organ hook and a robust classic pop chorus, and switches out Singles' "Sackville" and "Commercial Rain" for "Keep the Circle Around" and "Butterfly," two early cuts that feature original vocalist Stephen Holt. Greatest Hits also pays better attention to Inspiral Carpets' time line -- it's sequenced in order of release.

    The Best Of The Madchester Bands!!!

    I'd been wanting to get this for a long while, but it became unavailable on here, and then finally, just as I was hoping, it became available again. I ordered and bought this months ago actually, but the Inspiral Carpets are my most favorite Madchester band because I'm really feeling their sound and like their take on the music sub-genre the best. Emerging from the U.K., they're among the most exciting bands I've ever come across and had the pleasure of experiencing, as well as catching up on what I'd been missing before the last decade. If anyone who may read my review right now hasn't already checked them out, then I beseech to do so. Because I concur that it's true, that they're truly one of the greatest English singles bands ever. This compilation is and makes a good introduction to them and their material, but the compilation I really wanted to get was Cool As, which I did after it showed up available to order and displayed on this site eventually. This CD is so good that it can be enjoyably listened from start to finish and I don't really have a favorite song since all are captivating. In my opinion, they're better than the Stone Roses and rank higher than them in my book. Great psychedelia mixed with club rhythms on some songs, others straight-ahead psychedelia. Recommended because they'll always keep your attention grabbed. Rather than explain any more or further, y'all just have got to hear them for yourselves.
