A Nearly Forgotten Perfect Album,
This review is from: In It For The Money (Audio CD)
It was by chance of hearing Supergrass's classic Alright on an advert that made me want to find out about the band that made a song which meant so much to me in my childhood. This resulted in me buying their first two albums, I Should Coco and In It For The Money, while I love their first album ISC I was amazed to find that IIFTM is, to me at least, a "perfect" album, by that I mean there is not a bad song on it, they are all good.
This achievement is even more impressive when combined with the variety of styles and instrumentation, with brass, organ, theremin and what appears to be a roulette wheel on the album combined with styles from acoustic ballads through rockers to a song influenced by Kool & the Gang. Most of its songs however maintain a heaviness that few brit-pop bands could muster in their fight against grunge.
For me it sits proudly along side my other great perfect albums Abbey Road, Electric Lady land, ZSATSFM, MBDTF, OK Computer, and Neon Bible (not a universally agreed upon list I know), please buy this album it deserves so much more credit then it gets especially when compared to its predecessor.
