5.0 out of 5 stars One of Britpop's greatest!, 9 Sep 2013
This review is from: Supergrass is 10 - The Best of 1994-2004 (Audio CD)
Supergrass have always been one of my favourite bands to emerge from the heyday of Britpop, and they managed to stick around and have hit singles for longer than most.

This decade spanning compilation is essential in any good indie music collection. Riding high on hits, it's quite incredible when you think of just how much quality music the three lads made whilst so young. The songs aren't in chronological order, but in an order which is pleasing to the listener.

From the evergreen student anthem 'Alright', the classic and exhilarating 'Caught by the Fuss'' and the brilliant 'Pumping On Your Stero', the album is great fun from start to finish. As time went on, the material matured, but the energy remained, 'Sun Hits The Sky' was an excellent rock ballad, and 'Moving' has lyrics which really speak to me. It's a shame that Supergrass aren't as well respected as Oasis and Blur, but I don't think the band ever took their music all that seriously anyway. They did however manage to successfully go from '90s Britpop to sound just as modern as any indie rock band in 2004, the year of this album's release.

Despite their many hits, Supergrass aren't just a singles band, I think that their studio albums are just as consistently brilliant, so if you'd never bought one before, hopefully one listen of 'Supergrass is 10' will encourage you to do so.
