Not even Ocean Colour Scene, who peaked with this late 90's britpop classic. The moment Steve Cradock starts with the opening to Hundred Mile High City, to the crescendo finish of It's A Beautiful Thing, the music is ebgulfing. Not since the the late 70's era of Queen and the Sex Pistls could a frontman be so charismatic. Not since Clapton or Hendrix could guitar sound so emotive. Not since ever was a bassist so cool. Not since Keith Moon a drummer/percusionnist with as much raw talent. And it shows. 13 tunes, a range of styles; from the roar of hundred mile high city to the pure emotion of better day to the folky besides yourself on to the crashing all up. Ocean Colour Scene excelled in writing music for the time. Although Moseley Shoals may have fared better, Marchin' Already is more complete. It is, however, not above criticism. Owing much to Weller, The Jam, Queen and 60's Britpop, this was not new cutting edge material. What it is, is a britpop album filled with tunes, crowd pullers, songs you remember entire summers by. A soundtrack for those who were there. Even if you weren't, listening to Marchin' Already, you feel as though you are there. Not the greatest album of all time, but buy probably in the top 10 from the 90's. No egos, no extras, just pure brilliant music

This is probably the best OCS album along with Mosely Shoals. The singles "Traveller's Tune" and "Hundred Mile High City" are probably the best example of OCS. I would recomend this album to be the first to get. I listen to it in the car, at home, on the bus, I play along to it on my guitar, and now my mum is listening to it! If that don't persuade ya then I give up. 10 out of 10!!!!

since the moment i put marchin' already into my cd player, and Hundred Mile High City started to play i have been a fan of ocs. steve cradock on vocals is perhaps the most sincere vocalist i have ever heard, and with amazing support from the other 3 band members, this band really shines. it is one of those albums in which every track could have made a top 10 single. for me, the last track Its A Beautifull Thing, really encapsulates the time, when OCS were the darlings of the British Rock industry. far superioir to there contempories such as Blur and Oasis. So, buy this and listen, and you will drift away to a nostalgic time, when lager started to become fashionable to drink again, going out for a curry with the lads and Friday night was prologed by watching T.F.I friday with Chris Evans. Sheer brilliance.

After the huge success of Ocean Colour Scene's 'Moseley Shoals', the band stuck with the winning formula with it's successor 'Marchin' Already'.

The style remains the same, as does the songwriting, meaning that if you enjoyed 'Moseley Shoals', 'Marchin' Already' should be alongside it in your CD collection. If an album can knock Oasis' 'Be Here Now' off the top spot in the UK charts, you know it's quality.

'Marchin' Already' kicks off with 'Hundred Mile High City', which is probably best remembered as one of the tracks used in the hit film 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells'. However, the whole album is five star material from beginning to end, Steve Cradock's vocals are clean and sincere, and melodic tunes like 'Debris Road' and 'Get Blown Away', and filled with emotion and never fail to stir me.

The album is easygoing, relaxing and soothing, and with the songs bursting with such hit potential, it's no surprise that 'Marchin' Already' spawned four UK hit singles: 'Hundred Mile City High', 'Traveler's Tune', 'Better Day' and 'It's A Beautiful Thing'.

The '90s was a great time for music, and whilst Oasis and Blur (who are undeniably awesome bands, and whose albums I own) dominated the Britpop scene, Ocean Colour Scene deserve to be thought of in the same league - and here is why.

After listening to this album , i have to discovered OCS are the most underrated bands around.This album is brilliant,the guitar is played brilliantly thoughout and the songs have a wonderfull feeling.Hundred Mile high city is a classic driving song ,Better day is a great song to relax to , Debris Road just reminds me of summer again, Get blown away would have made a cracking single and it's a beautiful thing is a lovely song , It is such a pity the singles didn't make it higher in the charts because they should have done and all the songs are just so related to life and they are peformed brilliantly .What a Fantastic Album!

'Get Blown Away' is my favourite song of all time. Just listen to those lyrics and you'll be blown away right enough.
But this album is full of classics!
From the riff of 'Hundred Mile High', the bass on 'All Up' and Simon's vocals on 'Foxy's Folk Faced', the word perfection springs to mind. The strength of tune from track to track, this really puts all those pretentious one-hit wonders to shame.
So under-rated were the OCS during the Brit Pop era, but looking back it's obvious that they on music terms were by far the best.
