It's Summer '95 all over again...
on 25 March 2004
Just bought this album last week after listening to "In it for the Money" and "Supergrass" on a pub jukebox last week. Once upon a time, I used to listen to a hell of a lot of britpop, but since then I've got into all sorts of things. Listening to the two albums mentioned above reminded me how good Supergrass actually are, so I bought it, and I think it's just fantastic.
Of course, everybody knows "Alright", but that's nowhere near the best song on the album. "I'd Like to Know" and "Mansize Rooster" are just about the most fun a tune can be, and that's what this type of music is all about. Since this album, Supergrass have grown into a much more mature (but no less fun) band, and this record shows pretty much their most raucous adolescent side, which is at times hilarious, and at others, just a clear ineffable British coolness. Admittedly, it tails off a little towards the end, but when it's on in the background of a party filled with 18 year olds, beer and maybe a little bit of other substances (such as those that Gaz was caught by the fuzz for), it's just storming all the way through. A definate for Supergrass fans, but for those new to the band, get "In it for the Money".
