Britpop at its best
on 8 July 2004
This is not an album of new songs but in fact a collection of all the singles that they have released over the course of their music careers and when you listen you think wow what a collection of singles they have actually produced! Currently this album has hit the UK album charts at number 4 which shows they still mean business. With songs like 'pumping on your stereo' and 'alright' this album has the right mixture of sing-a-long pop mixed with indie anthems. All those people out there who think that Supergrass are a bona-fida indie band and that's what made them last 10 years I disagree with, personally I think it's the fun loving Britpop that makes them so successful today.
The band is made up of Gaz Coombes - lead vocals & guitar, Danny Goffee - Drums & Vocals, Mick Quinn - Bass & Vocals, and Rob Coombes on the Keyboard. They came together to form Supergrass in 1994 and soon became very successful and over the years as they continued to churn out hit after hit, the public started to take them for granted not noticing what fantastic music they were still making. It is hard to understand how this band ended up so under-rated while bands such as oasis and blur were flying through the Britpop scene with such success. This could be put down to the facts that even though they are highly talented they still know how to laugh at themselves.
All the once loved but now forgotten hits are there, 'Alright', 'Moving', 'Late in the day' and of course the more recent hit 'Grace' this is the perfect album for chilling out, kicking back and remembering what summer is all about. The single released and made for this album 'Kiss of Life' is a great funky piece of pop which gives across a different side to the usual comical fun-loving face that Supergrass are most well known for. With a grand total of 21 songs it's a sure thing that your getting value for your money, so whether you want to relive the good old days or you have never listened to Supergrass and you fancy a refreshing change this is the album for you!
All that is left to say is raise your glasses here is to another 10 years, Cheers Supergrass!
