Review of All The Money's Gone
Having added themselves to the list of one-hit wonders to make their name via a jeans ad, Jas Mann and his Babylon Zoo cronies are back with a new 10-track album - King Kong Groover - and yet more absurd, space-related hi-jinks.

On the back of this comes the new single, rather appropriately named All The Money's Gone.

Considering how bad their last efforts were, we're not surprised...

It seems like they've had a bit of a rethink in the old music department as this is [dum dum dummmm!] an excellent track. Shocked? Us too...

Sounding like Oasis have discovered electronica and smoothened up Liam's voice slightly, it's a so-so rocky number that even the grungiest of headbangers might be inclined to listen to.

Or not... but it'll be their loss... and our gain!

Side by side with their debut release, that Spaceman song, you'll be fooled into thinking this is a seperate band. Well... maybe band is a bit too strong, considering Jas IS the band [he plays all the instruments!].

We'd never expected to hear from them again after first album The Boy With The X-Ray Eyes, but then again, EMI DID sign them up to do something like seven albums, so maybe it's not so surprising. Happily, this latest album is not at all bad.

Overall : 4 out of 5
