This review is from: In It For The Money (Audio CD)
It truly is. While the first album 'I should coco' is effervescent adolescent mayhem, and the third album 'Supergrass' is much darker and gloomy, this one is the masterpiece album. With a good balance of vibrant fun (Sun hits the sky), soulful ballads (Late in the day), fast paced dark rock anthems (Richard III), silliness (Sometimes you make me sad), laziness (Hollow little reign), magic (It's not me), this CD has it all. The building up of energy in the opening track, 'In it for the money' is just infectious, as is the whole album.
This album is the best album I've listened to. Not only does it cover a wide variety of moods and styles, it's musical creativity and ingenuity is scarcely matched by any artist or album. These guys laugh in the face of user-friendly rock laid out on a plate for the mindless chart music listener, but never stray from creating a wierd and wonderful mix of styles, progressions, rhythms and melodies, and keeping the listener on their toes.
