Are You Normal? is Ned's Atomic Dustbin's second album, released on 3 November 1992.[3] It features the band's biggest American hit, "Not Sleeping Around", which hit the top of Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.[4]


Are You Normal? shows the band scaling back on the dual-bass, "punk-pop"-informed grebo sound of their debut album in order to "let the dynamics of the basses soak through the rush of power chords that dominate their early work."[5] It also shows the band beginning to work with electronics, sampling and "ultramodern production" that the band would later continue to explore in their later work.[5] Allmusic said the result is "an almost bouncy, bright album, full of great hooks and lyrical cleverness."[5]
