This Is Normal ‎(Cass, Album, Unofficial). Music Land Records (2). 3293. I got this CD a while back in the late 90's, and it holds up pretty well with all the pop and programming that's been around since then. The album tries to mirror apollo four fourty's "blue" album (IMO) and tries to utilize lyrics and tone like Pulp. They had a distinctive, yet common sound but also had a way of mixing that created this good disc. I had the version which had the remixing software (which has phased out through time, but still is fun)

Gus Gus' second album, This Is Normal, heralds their discovery that they are first and foremost a pop band. While the spacious, sophisticated electronica they developed on their debut (Polydistortion) is still evident, This Is Normal's smooth, streamlined finish has more than a nodding acquaintance with dance-pop
