5.0 out of 5 stars Best "Indie" album of the 90's, 21 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Attack Of The Grey Lantern (Audio CD)
Before The Killer's, The Libertines, The Bravery et al, there wasn't much!
Throughout the 90's Oasis we're preaching the same boring nonsense, Supergrass made pop records and the Stereophonics bored the living day light out of me(and anybody else with a bit of common sense).
BUT, in 1997 there was one or two exeptional bands around (if you looked hard enough)-and one of those was the brilliant outcasts-Mansun.
They never really did fit in with the rest of the Brit-Pop garbage back then, but who cares?
"Attack Of The Grey Lantern" is simply one of the best and most accomplished albums i've ever heard.
As a 16 year old Guitarist in 1997-hearing this album was for me, a LIFE changer.
I'd never heard an album so daringly insperational, unique, diverse, honest and modest, and original.
"The Chad Who Loved Me", "Wide Open Space", "Mansun's Only Love Song" and "Taxloss" are my personal favorites.Paul Draper had one of the best voices i've ever heard...(Chris who?)
Forget what the fickle music press press had to say about this band.
Just listen to the album and tell me it isn't good!
A truely unforgetable listen
