It's mediocre at best. And why do you need a 75 watts amp, do you gig or something?

Seriously, 75 watts are plenty loud. Too loud for most situations. Think twice before buying something like that. I recommend this instead of the Frontman:

It has 30 watts - that's enough for band rehearsals and small gigs and you'll have a PA for micing it at bigger gigs anyway. Don't forget that it also sounds three times better than the Frontman.

EDIT:
If you don't mind spending 216 pounds, you can have this:

It's basically the same amp with more wattage and an additional speaker. The 2nd speaker helps a lot with the bass response and makes it sound better for heavy rock and metal.

I'm going to be honest, if you want loud, cheap and decent cleans, get the Fender. This slide player uses it in my class and she sounds awesome on it. The distortion is dire though.

If you buy it, take advantage of the reasonable cleans and mountains of headroom (because it is way too loud. Unnecessarily loud. Volume at 3 will fill a medium hall) and buy pedals to suit. I'm gettin quite a collection (buildin some effects. Latest is an MXR dist+ copy. Quite a good sound) and it gives me the overdrive I want and some passable cleans too.

Throw away the footswitch though, or pilfer the 3pdts from it, because the overdrive is awful and you'll never use it.
