The ten greatest British debut albums of recent times

Definitely Maybe

"Before the Manc meisters got too big for their boots - this is how good they were.  Written mostly whilst Noel worked on a building site."
Against Perfection

"Possibly the most underrated band ever, should have reached the heights of their more famous Creation label stable buddies."
Lost Souls
Lost Souls
"One of those albums that gets better from track one onwards, and track one (firesuite) is superb.  A truly mesmeric album that I never tire of hearing."
1977 [East West Release]

"Released in that balmy Brit-pop summer of 1996, captured the time wonderfully.  'Jump around' anthems coupled with super cool Brit rock like 'Oh Yeah' and 'Goldfinger'."
Blue Lines

"An absolute classic containing possibly the greatest single of all time in 'Unfinished Sympathy'."
The Stone Roses

"Pure musical genius.  Anthemic.  Ground breaking.  Trend setting.  Generation inspiring.  Surely they will return!?"
Word Gets Around
Word Gets Around
"How to write tunes - by Welsh village lads.  Again, written before they were famous, songs about working class life in a small town.  I wish I could sing like Kelly Jones."
Holes In The Wall

"If you haven't heard this album - go and do it now.  Toe tapping anthems, great melodies and some pure kick ass stuff.  Good bands don't usually come from the South Coast, do they?"
I Should Coco

"Maybe the definitive brit pop album - feel good classic.  Cheeky, rockin', humourous, intelligent - they haven't done bad since either have they?"

"Bristolian brilliance.  Still sounds fresh.  Haunting and beautiful, a journey in music.  Classic tunes that you still hear today (nearly ten years on) accompanying trailors for gritty TV drama."
