I remember the first time i heard Mansun, it was the single 'she makes my nose bleed' and i searched high and low (well local Our Price (RIP) and Woolworths) for the single, then suddenly stumbled across the album 'Attack of the Grey Lantern'. This album, its fair to say, changed my life. Mansun were criminally underrated, a band who if were to release AOTGL now, would probably get critical acclaim. Looking down the tracks, theres the stape classics (wide open space, she makes my nose bleed, i can only dissapoint u, taxloss) mixed in with the wonderful b-sides and album tracks that made Mansun who they were, inventive, brilliant and way beyond their time. Anyone who's interested in broadening thier indie taste should make this top priority to buy. Beautiful instrumentally, lyrically moving and completely immersive, this best of is well and truly deserved and justified by a band, similarly to hope of the states, who split up way too soon. they were massive in japan too!!!
buy it and hear the brilliance of mansun.
