Reissued 2019, Originally released 1998
Mansun was one of the most iconic and innovative British bands of the late '90s. Tearing up the expectation laid by their smash hit #1 debut album Attack of the Grey Lantern, Mansun followed up in 1998 with their leftfield cult classic Six. The music is a unification of numerous ideas and inspirations, with elements of pop, electronica and progressive rock. They included a Tchaikovsky sample interlaced with electronic drums and spooky synth lines, references to religious skepticism, Winnie the Pooh, Stanley Kubrick, Marxism and spoken word from the legendary fourth Doctor Who - Tom Baker. It's varied sounds result in dynamic switches mid-track to seemingly new songs, making the album a timeless record and it's not short on strong individual tracks with the singles "Legacy", "Being A Girl", "Negative" and "Six". The audio has been fully remastered from the original master tapes by Jon Astley (Van Morrison, The Who, George Harrison, Norah Jones, Rolling Stones).
