Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly executed, 20 Mar. 2009
This review is from: In It For The Money (Audio CD)
This is one of the most outstanding albums of the 90s and one of my favourites. Amongst the popular bands of their day, Supergrass had an almost unrivalled musicianship and a seemingly telepathic understanding of what the other band members were doing at any given moment. These were the kinds of guys who could write their music, rehearse their parts and go into the studio and just lay it down - something so few bands can do. The fact that they're still going strong in 2009 is very pleasing, even if they've never been quite as good since this album, and their astonishing debut.

I won't go through this record track-by-track, since "New Gold Dreamer" has said it all (great review!), but if I had to pick a favourite, I'd be changing my mind every day... The title track is great, Richard III, Late In The Day, Sun Hits The Sky, It's Not Me, You Can See Me - they're all perfect. The rest are superb. It's too tough a choice, although whenever I pick up a guitar I almost always play either Late In The Day, It's Not Me or Sun Hits The Sky, so I suppose it's probably one of those. The thing is though, that every song has it's place - feet firmly planted in the ground, cheeky grin on it's face and looking to have a good time. This album always energizes me and lightens the heart. I feel like I could run a marathon after listening to it (and I used to listen to it a lot).

What's so strange is that they're still largely ignored, except by the more knowledgable music critics and a handful of us rabid fans. Are we all crazy, or is everyone else mad? Get it and decide for yourself, but please don't steal it - they need the money ;)
