4.0 out of 5 stars Profit in Peace, 30 Oct. 2012
This review is from: One From The Modern (Audio CD)
A criminally overlooked piece of Britpop (probably because it was released on 1999, when the genre was already obsolete and a thing of the past) with sometimes loud and occasionally groovy guitars, this is an album that has so many glorious sing-along tunes that it bloody hurts! Following a similar structure to Moseley Shoals (a rocking opener followed by a heartbreaking ballad and so on), One From the Modern connects hit after hit almost without rest: rather a mid tempo tune, a typical Ocean Colour Scene pop song with all the members of the band singing the chorus, a passionate rocker or a moving slow ballad. But the album's is so varied and every single song is so good, so catchy and has such a harmony between the guitars, the rhythm section and the vocals, that it's truly amazing that this album (and this band) had been so neglected by both critics and fans. I guess it came out too late to be relevant. But still today, whilst hearing one of the most brilliant songs of the movement and of the entire decade - "The Waves" - it's almost impossible not to fall in love with these guys. I honestly think that One From the Modern is as good as the so-called masterpieces of the Britpop scene (in fact, now that I come to think about it, I think it's not too dissimilar to (What's the Story) Morning Glory?).
