Product Description

SUPERGRASS In It For The Money (1997 UK / Dutch pressed 12-track CD album including Going Out Richard III Sun Hits The Sky Cheapskate and Late In The Day with fold-out picture sleeve CDPCS7388)

Amazon.co.uk

They could only record at their Cornish studio when the tide was in, you know. "The acoustics", apparently. But what an investment that tide almanac was. From the vein-busting opener "In It For The Money" to the stoopid, human-beatbox closer of "Sometimes I Make You Sad", Supergrass's second album fairly defines the term "classic". "Going Out" swivels on an outrageous, 14-bar passage of Memphis brass and buzzes like the Beatles on the roof at Apple, while "Sun Hits The Sky" has all the furious bass-runs of the Who's "I Can See For Miles". And "Late In The Day" breaks into a guitar solo of such unindulgent homesick beauty it could cause pavements to weep. God would have to buy a Gibson and crib off John Lennon to top half of the songs on Money. --Caitlin Moran

This album is superb - from the hard driving "Richard III" to the gorgeous acoustic ballad "Its Not Me", the songwriting is up there with the likes of The Beatles throughout the whole album.
Supergrass grow up on this album because its not punky like 'I Should Co Co' instead a brass section features on quite a few tracks which is reminiscent of some of The Beatles later stuff; its also not quite as fresh sounding as 'I Should Co Co' and doesn't hit you quite as hard. However once you've given the album a few listens the hooks become so apparent you'll be singing along just about every track! Mind Blowing Stuff!

This album is in my opinion not only the best Supergrass album but also one of the greatest albums of our times. It would most likely appeal to not only fans of Indie music but in addition, to classic rock fans and perhaps even many hard rockers who may be moved such is the level of songcraft and passionate intensity on display here. A great production complimets Gaz's fine vocals nicely and the rest of the band do some sterling work. Could this end up being one of the few Brit albums of the 90's that will go down in history? A classic with a capital C. Looking forward to the Hoo Ha!

It was by chance of hearing Supergrass's classic Alright on an advert that made me want to find out about the band that made a song which meant so much to me in my childhood. This resulted in me buying their first two albums, I Should Coco and In It For The Money, while I love their first album ISC I was amazed to find that IIFTM is, to me at least, a "perfect" album, by that I mean there is not a bad song on it, they are all good.

This achievement is even more impressive when combined with the variety of styles and instrumentation, with brass, organ, theremin and what appears to be a roulette wheel on the album combined with styles from acoustic ballads through rockers to a song influenced by Kool & the Gang. Most of its songs however maintain a heaviness that few brit-pop bands could muster in their fight against grunge.

For me it sits proudly along side my other great perfect albums Abbey Road, Electric Lady land, ZSATSFM, MBDTF, OK Computer, and Neon Bible (not a universally agreed upon list I know), please buy this album it deserves so much more credit then it gets especially when compared to its predecessor.

If you are looking for just one Supergrass studio album to go alongside the greatest hits, make it 'In It For The Money'.

Their second album managed to overshadow their brilliant, fast and punky debut, purely because the lads' songwriting abilities went from strength to strength, the album is more ambitious and contains a greater variety of quality songs. None of the tracks particularly outshine another, they are all different and hold up in their own right: some are hard, some soft, some fast and some slow, it has the perfect mixture.

Riding high on tracks which became hits, here you'll find the irresistible 'Sun Hits The Sky', which will have you singing along after just the one listen, as well as the super ballad 'Late In The Day', which has a great guitar solo and smooth vocals from Gaz.

'In It For The Money' is listed in the book '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die', an entry which is truly deserved.

This is the only Supergrass album I own. I bought it on the strength of Richard III which I heard when it first came out. There are some great songs on this album, specifically In it for the Money and Richard the III - and those two songs alone make this album a worthwhile purchase.

I listened to the album a few days ago for the first time in a couple of years, and it still sounds fresh. Great hooks, blistering guitar and fantastic vocals. All in all, this record probably is a classic.

This is one of the most outstanding albums of the 90s and one of my favourites. Amongst the popular bands of their day, Supergrass had an almost unrivalled musicianship and a seemingly telepathic understanding of what the other band members were doing at any given moment. These were the kinds of guys who could write their music, rehearse their parts and go into the studio and just lay it down - something so few bands can do. The fact that they're still going strong in 2009 is very pleasing, even if they've never been quite as good since this album, and their astonishing debut.

I won't go through this record track-by-track, since "New Gold Dreamer" has said it all (great review!), but if I had to pick a favourite, I'd be changing my mind every day... The title track is great, Richard III, Late In The Day, Sun Hits The Sky, It's Not Me, You Can See Me - they're all perfect. The rest are superb. It's too tough a choice, although whenever I pick up a guitar I almost always play either Late In The Day, It's Not Me or Sun Hits The Sky, so I suppose it's probably one of those. The thing is though, that every song has it's place - feet firmly planted in the ground, cheeky grin on it's face and looking to have a good time. This album always energizes me and lightens the heart. I feel like I could run a marathon after listening to it (and I used to listen to it a lot).

What's so strange is that they're still largely ignored, except by the more knowledgable music critics and a handful of us rabid fans. Are we all crazy, or is everyone else mad? Get it and decide for yourself, but please don't steal it - they need the money ;)
