Echobelly - On mp3 album
On was the second album from English rock band Echobelly. Gaining a favourable response from critics the album reached number 4 in the UK Albums Chart. The album title was inspired by a poster found by Glen and Sonya. The poster had the word "no" across it in blood red. By turning the word around, it became a positive, and thus decided to title the album On.
This album focused on more universal themes, instead of the more politically and ethically charged subjects of Everyone's Got One. Madan's lyrics often ventured into the seamy side of life, such as the milieu of prostitution and homelessness addressed in "King of the Kerb". I wanted to challenge myself as a lyricist on a different level on this album," Madan said in Rolling Stone. Health and legal problems interrupted the success of Echobelly in 1995 and 1996. Madan had a serious thyroid problem during her world tour that was potentially life-threatening, but was later cured. The group also had disagreements with Rhythm King after the label moved to Arista.

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine. Brash Brit-pop band led by Sonya Madan who added diversity to a lad-heavy scene.
Album Name On. Type Album. Members owning this album2.
Echobelly are a British rock band, debuting in 1994 with their album Everyone's Got One. They were often compared to Blondie and were influenced by Morrissey, who himself was a fan of the group. The most prominent part of Echobelly's success formula was vocalist Sonya Madan, who was also the group's primary lyricist. Born in Delhi, India, before moving to England at the age of two, Madan had an unusual background for a pop star.
Our second album, ON, was to be our most successful. We’d been writing some of the songs during the tail end of the first album. Glenn had written KING OF THE KERB, with its perfect opening riff, in the back of the tour bus and we rehearsed it during soundchecks. As a student I had lived in Soho, London.
