Just want to hear everyone's thoughts and opinions on Monaco's Music For Pleasure and their self-titled album from 2000. With Music For Pleasure being the best "NO side project" album in my opinion and I hope Hooky eventually tours again as Monaco rather than The Light.

Monaco's M4P was Hook's finest output outside Neworder.

The self titled 2nd album wasn't as good but had a few highlights.

Not as good as Electronic overall but M4P and particularly WDYWFM ran them very close.

Great album with great songs and I loved the album cover.

Some good B sides as well.

Barfly, Shattered, Bicycle Thief, Coming…

Anyone remember what a B side is?

M4P is probably the berst OutOfOrder LP after 'Electronic'. It's A Boy has sentimental value - I play it with my wife when I'm pissed.
