The Farm's debut album Spartacus is one of the more ridiculous by-products of baggy, containing all of its rolling, neo-psychedelic grooves and blissfully colorful pop hooks, yet very little of its charm, character, or substance. Since baggy was never about substance, this is particularly damning. Still, the Farm manages to turn out a couple of goofily endearing singles with "Groovy Train" and "All Together Now," but the group shows no real feeling for dance-club rhythms, or even pop hooks. As an artifact, Spartacus is fascinating, since it demonstrates how far the over the top the entire Madchester phenomenon went, even if the record itself isn't necessarily good listening.

I'm into most of the Madchester bands and the Farm is one of them that keeps my interest. I've gotten into their music a while back and this 2 disc edition of Spartacus makes such a great reissue. Among my favorite tracks on these are Groovy Train, All Together Now and the ghost dance mix of their cover of the Monkees' Stepping Stone. But the whole set is great really. Everything about it is as well as the booklet, which comes complete with the background of their bio, lyrics and credits. Aside from their compilation, their debut is and makes a great starting point. Not a bad track on this. This CD set is no let-down, go out and get it, and try for yourself.
