The one after Mosely Shoals,
This review is from: Marchin' Already (Audio CD)
This is the follow up to 1996's Mosely Shoals. It had a lot to live up to and I think it holds it's own. When released it knocked Oasis off the top of the album charts.
It's a very different album, fuller sounding, mellower, folkier, yet still full of the same quality lyrics, singing and guitars.
The first track 'Hundred Mile High City' was used at the start of 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' and is a very rocky tune. Perhaps the only out-and-out rock song on the album. It then moves onto different ground, acoustic guitar featuring more than before.
For me the stand out tracks are 'Foxy's Folk Faced' and 'Beautiful Thing', though there's not a bad track on here.
This is a good 90's Britpop album, it's a good rock album and shows the band starting down a path they were destined to walk in their next 2 albums. For many OCS fans this is the best they've done. Not me, it ain't half good though!
