In It for the Money is the second studio album by English alternative rock band Supergrass, released in 1997. NME called it "more fun than watching a wombat in a washing machine" and named it the 10th best album of the year. In 1998, Q readers voted it the 68th greatest album of all time, while in 2000 the same magazine placed it at number 57 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.Wikipedia
This was alright. Enjoyable but I don’t remember much of it.
Amazing, I never really listened to supergrass but I'm definitely slowly becoming a fan
Ah, childhood memories. I've got so much time for Supergrass, especially the first two albums. It's always catchy but also at times heavy, quirky, sophisticated, and most of all a lot of fun. A band who really knows the power of a good chord change. The guitar solo on Late In The Day is an all-time favourite - always makes me smile/shiver. 4.5, but I'm rounding up this time (nostalgia bias innit).
I'm not sure if I've heard of this band before. All of the music was new to me. Occassionally the vocals reminded me of Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins). From time to time the music reminded me a little of a few other bands from the 90s like Beck, Oasis, or the Dandy Warhols. This album sounds like it would have fit in with any of those bands. I liked the album overall. Every track was at least "okay". "Cheapskate" and "Sun Hits the Sky" were my favorite tracks. This album is 3.5 stars --> rounding up to 4.
This album had an intriguing sound, and definitely picked up right at the end. My favourite songs were Hollow Little Reign, Sometimes I Make You Sad, and You Can See Me.
NO WAY THEY HAVE TWO SUPERGRASS ALBUMS ON THIS LIST. NOBODY FUCKS WITH THEM LIKE THAT?? i swear this list has so many questionable albums
Still sounds fresh, original and inventive. A flawless album.
First band I'm giving back-to-back 5 star ratings for (nearly 200 days in!). Crazy fun, super catchy, fuzzy power pop. Really enjoyed this and "I Should Coco". Favorite tracks: "G Song", "Richard III", "Hollow Little Reign"
REALLY good. I've heard the band off and on, of course, but this is the first time I've sat down and closely listened to an album as a whole.
Rock excelente e EXATAMENTE na vibe que eu tava precisando
Another great album, another 5
Wow, had not heard of Supergrass and I really like their alt-rock vibe. This band has some incredible musicians. Very sophisticated and well-thought-out stuff!
Title track comes on first, but damn this album is long. 71 minutes? IIRC Grass is tattling in the UK. These guys were also linked to another band or a solo act? Ah yes, Mick joined Swervedriver. This is good! Psych pop. Kinda reminds me of a british GBV with harmonies and rock chords. Is that a fucking theremin?
Huge sound, total party/ cruise vibe. Thunderous bass, crunchy guitars, shouty vocals, groovy drums. 60s-70s influences
When i saw that 'alright' wasn't on this, i was sad, as i thought it was all i knew by them... turns out i was wrong. Banger after banger. Super album.
Great album. Not a lot of time to listen but I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it a bit more!
Gran descubrimiento este disco no conocia ni al grupo ni el disco, muy variado y divertido
Surprised by this one, a band I slept on but a great album!
Wow. That was a very good surprise. A lot of mixed rock styles, some of them looking like 60's classics and also some kind of grunge (?) at the end of the '90s. They are not the best in any of these styles and besides some songs, they are not memorable, however, the album looks like a real walk through song style and all very well played. Nothing much more to say. but "Supergrass" will be included in my songs research for the future.
Fav songs: - In it for the money - Late in the day - Sun Hits The Sky - Hollow Little Reign - Wait for the Sun
This one was really fun. There's a good chance I'm gonna be a sucker for anything with that much organ and horns.
Rocking, Grooving, influential.
Sick. I had a really good time with this - there was no song that I didn't enjoy. "In It For The Money", "Richard III", "Sun Hits the Sky" and "You Can See Me" were the best of the best for me. Very pleasantly surprised, it's always the albums with the most garbage covers that I seem to enjoy the most in the end. I mean, the cover's not bad, but it (together with the band name) made me think I was going to be listening to bluegrass. (I only listened to what Spotify considers to be "disc 1", since disc 2 is for the bonus tracks according to Wikipedia)
really enjoyed this
Really cool funky garage rock
One of the most under rated British bands. This is my favourite album of theirs..... an easy 5
Some songs are boring or not really that interesting but most of them have a really catchy tune. Love it. Def will listen to them more. Love Sex! Really funny and real song.
never thought I'd like it
Yes yes yes please
OMFG this is very fucking good 10/10
Didn't know what to expect from these guys, but I was pleasantly surprised. Funky, edgy, alternative music that has a high relisten value.
This list has made me a Supergrass fan. Between this album and I Should Coco, I'm all in on Supergrass. Thanks 1001 Albums!
I was excited to give another five stars these weeks, and behold, here they are! This album is very enjoyable from beginning to end. I didn't check the genres at first and thought that this was going to be folk or something but no! It's pure britpop and indie rock insanity, the good kind! It sounds like if a Beatles tribute band suddenly decided to play alternative music, and turned out better than it was expected! 4.6/5
This was so much fun! Much better than a lot of 90s rock-pop I've listened to
A mature album with very little filler.
Supergrass was one of those bands I was aware of but never listened to in the 90's. I'm now very much kicking myself for not having checked this out earlier. This album has so much great stuff in it; kind of seems like a precursor to proggy rock bands like Closure in Moscow. Instant fan.
I loved this. Great songwriting, really cool use of vocal harmonies and guitar. Kinda all over the place. Creative and charismatic.
Better than I expected. Based on the cover, I thought it would be a kind of folk-punky affair, but it has some really interesting songs. On the higher side of 4.
Strong 4. Great Rock that just rips emotions out of you, excitement and longing alike. Second half is better. Standout Tracks: Late In The Day, Sun Hits The Sky, Going Out, It’s Not Me, Cheapskate, You Can See Me, Hollow Little Reign
This is some absolutely first-rate indie rock. That's it. That's all I can come up with at the moment. This is certainly worth a revisit, but I just like it in a simple way, especially after a bunch of projects I didn't dig in the same way. The melodies are sticky and the songs fly by.
Classic Britpop from happier times. Not quite Oasis v Blur but a good choice nonetheless
Surprisingly good and upbeat rock album which doesnt have any bad songs but also too little great songs to deserve a 5
Only three songs in and I am already loving this album. Super catchy, great energy, just really fun.
I love this album! just the kind of rock I like
I really liked this album. It had some strange mix of folk/punk sounds. Would definitely buy this album.
Well, this was a lot of fun. Never heard of these guys, but glad I have now.
Great album. Didn't love it as much as their previous one but this one was pretty killer
Love me some brit-pop. A bit on the harder side of brit-pop but not a bad thing.
I like this... this might be a new band discovery!
I wasn't sure what to expect. I had heard of Supergrass, but not sure if I've heard their music before. This was really good though. High energy, great production.
Better than I expected. Listened to it twice
Another good album (and surprised that I haven't heard the group before). And, it's a different sound than their first album.
Preferred the other one but still good
Me ha sorprendido. Más melódico de lo que esperaba.
Eine der CDs, die völlig in Vergessenheit geraten war. Als ich das Cover hier gesehen habe, konnte ich mich kein Stück erinnern, sie schon mal ganz gehört zu haben. Und als ich sie dann gehört habe, war ich verwundert, dass ich fast jeden Song mindestens mitsummen kann. Viele Hits. Vielleicht höre ich bald mal wieder rein. Auf jeden Fall fette 4,4 Punkte!
Enjoyable album. More tracks I recognised than I thought I would, good guitars and blends of instruments arranged very nicely. Very good album.
Leuke band, leuk album.
Pegada meio oasis
We knew a song.
Just classic rock, pretty good to listen to in the background (with maybe the exception of a few exotic fragments).
Stevig album met goeie gitaarriffs. 'Sun hits the sky' is het bekendste nummer. Af en toe een psychedelisch orgeltje erin. Geen fan van de vele fade-outs. luie manier om een song te eindigen.
Fun album to listen to :)
Ik ben er wel fan van, goed om op de achtergrond op te leggen tijdens het werken.
I was quite surprised by it. Nothing special but I had a good time.
Hit and miss, but there's some surprisingly catchy rock in here.
Yuooooooooooooooooopppp Final Thoughts: 4/5
The band name throws me off, I was surprised by their sound.
Really good music. Somehow I hadn’t heard them before, but will listen to their other albums.
pretty fun listen
honestly super surprised by this album, 3 or 4 saves and overall a great listen
4.5, this was dope. Really good britpoprock with some cool psychedelic elements sprinkled in
Fun, rocking British indie.
Rock independiente. Muy bueno.
Can’t put my finger on who it reminds me of but I like it
Good power pop. I've been enjoying it on repeat, but none of it is really sticking (i.e., I don't find myself recalling the songs when I'm not playing it). I can definitely see listening to it again but it's strange that I can't seem to keep it in my head. Maybe I need to listen more closely. Giving it a 4 in anticipation of getting into it more over time.
This was a tough one to rate so I gave it a few listens. The first 2 tracks feel incomplete to me. They both fade out right when they seem like they're going to get interesting. I keep hearing this great instrumental break in my head during Richard III that never happens. I originally thought 3 stars because it's a good average album but I've noticed that a lot of the songs have gotten stuck in my head during the day. "Tonight", "Late in the Day" and "Sun Hits the Sky" in particular. The album has really grown on me. Enough for a 4th star (or at least a 3 1/2 rounded up)
I know a few of the songs off the album but never listened to it in full. It's solid. You can also see their influence in taking Brit-Pop from Blur and Oasis to a slightly more frenetic pace that defines (not just in the UK) the post-punk alternative sounds of the late 90s and early 2000s (Kaiser Chiefs, the Strokes, the Vines, etc.). Loved the first half of the album, got a little boring, monotonous, or just not as good in the second half.
I really dug this. We had watched a documentary on BritPop in the 90s so I had heard of this group but knew nothing about the songs. Some of the songs did start to blur together a bit, but maybe that was just me. Still, very enjoyable.
Didn’t know this band, but really enjoyed this album.
It was good
Good Album. Never heard of them before and will keep them in my playlist.
Why i see Radiohead everywhere?
Sick album, didn't quite hit the 5 mark but very very close. Would've got there if they tightened up the run time a bit, loses its focus a bit in parts. Hollow Little Reign is the highlight, love the meandering psychadeliea.
A great record, lots of inventive chord twists and turns in the songs. Main songwriter has obviously thoroughly digested his dad's record collection of '60's pop/rock then integrated it into his own unique style. Heaps of great songs I'll be listening to again in the future.
Nearly a 5 star. A combination of fantastic pop/brit rock with dashing of psychedelics and some fantastic songwriting. My only issue is that it does seems to drift a bit at times, losing focus. Would have been better 3-4 songs shorter.
Really enjoyed this album. I could hear the influences from both directions from the other big name bands of the 90's.
Excellent followup, more mature song writing
101021 17:33 4
Pretty funky and rockin'.
Great alt rock album, definitely some bangers and will be following the band more Fave track: Richard III
Yeah it was pretty good! Little repetitive.
Strong 4 stars
Fantastic band. Not quite as good as their debut, but a hell of a follow up.
Didn't expect to see this here. Fair enough, it's pretty enjoyable for someone who likes Britpop. Better than Aerosmith anyway. Fun Fact: I went to see Gaz Coombes live in New York, but got so drunk before the gig that I passed out and pissed myself. Fun Fact 2: I went to see Supergrass in Amsterdam, but the day before I eat half a space cake and pissed myself.
odd one, there are 5 of supergrass' best tracks on here. richard III, late in the day, sun hits the sky, going out and its not me, but the filler is just a bit too shit. in true Alan Partridge fashion i would rather listen to the greatest hits album, i'd never put this album on to bask in this creative body of work. weird i'd consider myself a supergrass fan but this is probably their best album and i'd rather listen to the singles. same sort of thing with new order. stilll gets a decent score though cos those 5 tracks as a 5 track EP would get a decent score.
Goofy album, I liked it though. Quirky 90s alt rock, couple bangers.
Solid album with some great tracks and it's well produced too. Just too long for my taste. To be great, a record needs to be tighter. When the running time is 71 mins there's too much opportunity to put weak tracks on there that detract from the overall score, which is what happened here. When it's good it's really good though. Supergrass have always been one of my favourite underrated British bands of the nineties.
Decent wall of sound when played loud. Sun Hits The Sky was a highlight as well as this version of Caught By The Fuzz. Gaz's voice doesn't match his face though. 4 stars
This is a very accomplished album. Is it as good as I Should Coco, their brilliant and much lauded debut? I'm not the one to ask. You see In It for the Money is my introduction to Supergrass and as such will always hold a unique place for me. Regardless In it for the Money is a GREAT brit pop album and packs a rockers punch that other more celebrated albums of the genre never quite reach for me. Every song has their charms. I had forgotten how good an album this is. 4.5 stars.
Good album but wouldn't listen to it again
Great little album. Class tunes
I am gay. Supergrass are alright though
Really enjoyed this album. Will be listening to it again!
A compelling, energetic and likeable listen from a band who are restlessly throwing everything on the table- even if some of it's a little half-baked. After a more straight-up rock and roll debut in "I Should Coco", Supergrass seem to be going for more of an eclectic feel here, expanding their musical vocabulary slightly. There's more instrumentation, from the brass section in the opener, theremin in propulsive rocker "Richard III", bongo breakdown in "Sun Hits the Sky." Gaz Coombes gives a very assured performance on vocals and the interplay between the three members is terrific- they give the sense that they're firing on all cylinders. Take the title track, an absolutely incredible opener: from the ominous lone organ chord and diminished chord guitar arpeggios to the "We're in it for the money" chant, building up to an explosive riff and vocal which then bridges into an incredible middle-8... it's by far the highlight on the record, and sets the stage for a peerless album. From this point, we're treated to more riff-tastic Britpop, with dialled-up guitars, thick production and embellishments from other instruments. It's all good fun, but I wish Supergrass veered in more directions musically. Their momentum and enthusiasm carries them through the first half, but then things do tail off slightly: "It's Not Me" is a forgettable experiment with balladry that doesn't quite land, "Hollow Little Reign" doesn't offer anything new, and "Sometimes I Make You Sad" is a disappointing closer, with experimentation in vocal percussion and flanging coming off as a gimmick. They had the talent to be much more eclectic than this, and it's a shame we don't see it here. Other songs remain frustratingly uneven, like "Cheapskate", only taking off whenever its chorus kicks in. Even "Late In The Day"'s Beatles-y sing-along refrain (just the right side of irritating) is disrupted by yawning acoustic-driven verses. On the whole though, this album is a lot of fun to listen to and most of the songs remain infectious and energetic. Anecdotal side note: Supergrass were the last band I saw live before the first UK lockdown. Them playing "Sun Hits the Sky" with a guest appearance from Johnny Marr was transcendental, and almost that memory alone brings this album to an easy 4*.
Uvijek sam za da poslušam britpop. Iznenadio me album, ima stvarno dobrih stvari. Favoritne: Richard III, G Song, Sun Hits the Sky, Going Out.
Quite a good surprise. Ran over a little too long without adding much in my opinion. Would listen to CD 1 again.
Ret fedt, meget 90' agtigt
Rating: 7/10 Best songs: In it for the money
Above average entertaining. Wouldn't listen to the whole album again. Put some of the songs on my favorites to repeat.
A pleasant listen.
That was fun. Lots of variety, it's not grunge or Britpop but has a mix of a lot of styles. Good tunes.
Dug it. Little too slow / odd near the end of the 2nd album but overall enjoyed
Supergrass is Super fun
Surprisingly silly and raw. I quite enjoyed this, although wish I could maybe chop it in half into two albums.
If Billy Corgan had an affair with Britpop, this would be the baby. Well written, well performed, and well produced, but there is a certain special “it factor” that it seems to be missing to really push it to greater heights.
From the cover and the band name, I was kinda hoping for some sort of electric bluegrass situation. I was mildly disappointed, upon hitting play, to find out that Supergrass is just another britpop band. After getting over my disappointment, I realized something else about this band: this is where Jack White got his sound. He legitimately lifted it wholesale from Supergrass. I had to check the wiki to be sure that this wasn't, in fact, an early Jack White project. The two are utterly indistinguishable. Jack White, you're a dirty thief and I didn't even know it. As far as the album goes, it was fun but, like a Jack White joint, nothing super exceptional.
skroz solidno, neki teski miks zanrova, bas je top, 4
A big Supergrass fan, and you have to wonder what would have happened to their careers had Spielberg followed through with his plan to install them as the "new monkees". Great upbeat Britpop that should have had a longer legacy
Some proper bangers from the old days - better than I remembered and holding up well after 20 years
No stand out favorites, but this album surprised me. Has a fun rock feel. I like the longer guitar solos. Would listen to again. Nice energizing the background music for work!
Late in the day Richard III Sun hits the sky It's not me In it for the money Et pourtant pas leur meilleur album.. quel groupe
В альбоме можно встретить очень разные песни. Торжественные, блюзовые баллады, арт - рок-ен-рольные, с вставкой пианино или синтезатора. Атмосферно, для любого настроения.
That was nice! Supergrass was much more than Alright
This album sits on the edge between Britpop and 2000s indie rock. The music is enjoyable and driving even if it’s not the most innovative thing I’ve ever heard. The melodies are memorable and remind me a bit of Oasis. The vocals have a Mick Jagger like swagger to them that really suits the music.
90s were the best
Pretty solid, seems foundational
Skemmtilegt plata, eflaust þeirra besta.
What sounds like a theramin saves a rather clichéd arrangement of Richard III. Interesting maj7 variation of the standard blues riff in Tonight. Pleasing chord pattern and arrangement in Late in the Day. Sun Hits the Sky and Cheapskate top, catchy tracks. You Can See Me also decent. Sitting Up Straight nods to punk influence and Melanie Davis could have been spawned by her phonetic namesake Ray. Sex sounds like a Stones cover - I like it! Got to commend this album. 21 songs and enough variety to make it interesting throughout. Well played, thoughtful arrangements, interesting changes. Not an absolute classic for me but an enjoyable listen.
This was a decent album
The hangover/come down from Britpop begins in earnest. Mix of perfect power pop / indie rock with a darker sensibility. Things weren't alright anymore. Best Tracks: Richard III; Sun Hits The Sky; Going Out
Пока, возможно, главное открытие списка. Великолепный альбом. Несколько отличных песен. Прослушал несколько раз. Некоторые песни явно войдут в мой личный плейлист. Удивлен, что вообще не особо слышал что-либо об этой группе и насколько она малоизвестна сейчас.
The lads certainly hit their straps with this one. Richard III through to G-Song a four track slab of goodness.
Tú sí que eres soso.
They're Smashing Pumpkins... if Billy had a positive attitude. This is a lot of fun but it is too long.
How come I ignored this band for so long? It is a great follow to their debut.
Always a good sign when every track sounds like a single. A quantum leap from the caffeine rush of the first album.
Oh wow, another super grass record. I’ll check this one out today
I'd never heard of these guys. This was a nice surprise. They reminded me, somewhat, of Burning Brides. "G Song", "Cheapskate", and "How Little Reign" were the standouts. "Sometimes I Make You Sad" is an earworm song.
Really enjoyed this, felt very related to Pavement, Dandy Warhols, Oasis, and maybe Blur. But faster paced than most and an interesting mix of grungy sounds with other genres. Will definitely be relistening in the future.
Oh a very misleading album cover. Really enjoyed this.
This is a very accomplished album. Is it as good as I Should Coco, their brilliant and much lauded debut? I'm not the one to ask. You see In It for the Money is my introduction to Supergrass and as such will always hold a unique place for me. Regardless In it for the Money is a GREAT brit pop album and packs a rockers punch that other more celebrated albums of the genre never quite reach for me. Every song has their charms. I had forgotten how good an album this is. 4.5 🌟
Liked it way more than I thought I would.
Better thaN i Thought. Thanks 1001 for the discovery. Britpop, mix between Oasis, the stroke..
Very enjoyable album, I was very surprised by its content, giving the bad taste of the cover.
Litt vel langt album, men i det store og det hele kult. Synes det tok seg opp fra sang 4. Late in the day - foreløpig favoritt. Kune hørt dette igjen.
Solid bit of work that doesn't give away the tense circumstances under which it was evidently created. First half/two thirds is better than the latter part, probably, but the best songs on here are major highlights of the later end of Britpop.
what a misleading cover art
Judging an album by the cover, the expectation here is that the listener is either treated to with a well done or cursed with a horribly produced backwoods amalgamation of noise. Au contraire, instead the album opens with a beautifully rhythmic rock and roll sound with "In It For The Money" the title track. The tone has been set, and this is very much a warm welcome. "Richard III" carries on the warm welcome with an energetic yet melodic offering. A few songs in, the inspirations start to come through, notably things that sound like something the Rolling Stones would do. More into the contemporary comparisons, there's a bit of Oasis as well. This album is a bit of a surprise because while these inspirations can be obvious, Supergrass maintains an identity to where the listener can believe they are listening to a contemporary rather than a type-cast-by-genre record label band designed to imitate. The album is a bit heavier than the aforementioned, but that may be to how their songs are mixed. The instruments are balanced nicely, the band has a beautiful grasp of melody and it plays so well. This is in somewhat of a contrast to their "I Should Coco" album (which received 4 stars) where it took a few listens to really narrow that score because of how long it took to become familiar. The band was a bit more diverse in their sound and music. This album on a single listen is markedly better even with a little better predictability, and more so for lack of a runaway hit single as recognizable as "Alright" from their previous release. The focus is split evenly on the album as a whole, without a mega hit to weigh against. Without that distraction, an objective listen is easier to do. This is a really solid album, and it is these now seemingly obscure finds that make 1001 such a great thing to experience. "It's Not Me" has a beautiful acoustic guitar, backed by sound effects reminiscent of Doctor Who, but with an anthemic near ballad-worthy chorus.
I got this a week after I Should Coco, so both are pretty fresh in my mind. Both are enjoyable to listen to. I feel as a whole In It For The Money is better, but it doesn't have the same peaks as its predecessor. Was cool to hear Sun Hits The Sky after hearing the riff in The Inbetweeners. Also liked the opening two tracks and cheapskate a lot.
4/5. Supergrass made quite a good Brit-pop album here, might be as good as the Bends
It's a great slick and happy album to listen to. Not as jumpy as their first, but a bit more polished. Good music.
Okay, this band is growing on me. This was a pretty fun album.
Surprisingly good rock music. Lots of great tracks.
Aggressive pop with a hint of grunge. Would definitely listen again.
Enjoyed thoroughly. Lags a lot in the second half, but the first half is killer.
liked this one a lot. felt like somewhat generic 90s alt but it was still very fun and enjoyable. probably will come back to it.
Agréable à écouter!
I hear elements of the Revolver-era Beatles, Oasis, Stones, and Tom Petty in this. Nothing groundbreaking in here, but this is a solid rock and roll album. G-love was my favorite track on here. Essential? No. But at least it’s good.
This band owes a debt of gratitude to Oasis, not to mention the Beatles. The songs are very upbeat and fun British power pop with layers of sound.
I listened to this a lot when it came out (the single from the first release, Alright, was a favorite of my very young son) and I was on the bandwagon. I always thought this was an impressive jump from their debut. They integrated many styles in a way that didn't seem either forced or jarring. Lots of elements 2of classic rock (including psychedelia), but without sacrificing the punky pop elements from their debut. They eschew cleverness while being tuneful - not always an easy balance.
Fun rock album. Can hear influences from the Beatles and the Stones with a modern twist
Really fun album! It's a bit long, but it held my interest throughout. Favorite tracks: Sun Hits the Sky, Sitting Up Straight
Soundtrack to my youth. Great, and always will be
Dang, I wish I knew about this album back in 1997! It would've been right up my alley! I love the opening track. The album is long but really fun. Gives me Guided by Voices/early Blur/Dandies vibes in all the best ways. Really enjoyed this, I may add it to my rotation.
Surprised I've not listened in full before. Very much worth it.
Very solid post-britpop album. Cheapskate my favourite track.
Prefs: In It For the Money, Richard III, Tonight, Late in the Day, Sun Hits the Sky, Going Out, Hollow Little Reign Moins pref: Sometimes I Make You Sad
Actually enjoyable as background music me: likey
They're all great at their respected instruments. Great mix of faster moving and slower moving songs. Very good vocals.
I had an online friend who used to be swear by Supergrass and turned me onto their first album. He’s been off the grid for a minute now, so I hope he’s doing well. I never actually got around to listening to their other stuff, though, so this was all new to me. Still pretty good! Strong melodies and a good sense of humor, but not too cloy with its comedic tracks either. They deserve to have been at least as big as Oasis were here. B
A 3.5, but I rounded up because it was better than I thought it would be.
Some solid Brit pop!!! Supergrass was never top of list but this was very enjoyable
Lots of really fun rocking tracks on this one, almost a bit of Smashing Pumpkins in amongst the Britpop.
I can't stand most 90s alternative British rock, other than Radiohead (yes that includes Oasis), so before I heard of this album I thought it would just add to the pile, but this was pretty great. A lot are mentioning influences like Oasis and Beatles, and while I do hear that, all I could think during was actually Smashing Pumpkins. Not only in his voice, but being able to rock out then reel it back in to really give the album some nuance. Not every song is a banger or anything, but this was still really enjoyable, and the last few songs were absolutely fantastic.
This one was a surprise. Not what I was expecting at all. Great 90s alternative rock. There’s some interesting 60s, britpop, and psychedelia influences as well. Do I think it is a must-hear before you die? Probably not. Is it that bad? Absolutely not. Good stuff.
Supergrass vient nous proposer tantôt une très bonne imitation de Nirvana, tantôt une trèS bonne imitation des Smashing Pumpkins. Vous vous doutez donc bien de la difficulté de noter cet album, j'accorde un tout petit 4 en tentant d'oublier l'horrible voix des Smashing Pumpkins.
Étant actuellement très pris par la Coupe du monde, je n'ai pour la première fois pas ouvert le générateur au cours d'un jour ouvrable. Lorsque j'allumai mon portable au soir, j'eus la surprise de voir que Robert m'avait laissé dix-sept messages vocaux m'astreignant d'écouter In It For The Miney. Ce fut l'occasion pour moi de lui rappeler que je lui avais déjà cassé la gueule plusieurs fois et qu'un nouveau bourre-pif n'était pas à exclure.
Oooh, it's thiiiiis 🤏 close to being a 5. Really appreciate the flow of this album - feels like a journey. Love the shifts of tone between songs. Would definitely go 4.5 if that were an option. Fave track - really like "Richard III", which was Supergrass' "Song2" in that it appealed to the metal enjoyer I was at the time it came out. Quite a few of the other tracks I really dig, but special mention to "Sometimes I Make You Sad" for some great squelchy noises....
British rock, pop. Pretty good
Always loved it. Still sounds surprisingly innovative and fresh when put on. A little front-loaded but it's alright. Just a great album in every way, just falling short of a five. A great record.
Drags in the middle, some great standout tracks though.
Ihan hauska levy ja jaksoi muutaman kerran kuunnella läpi
