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.

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?

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).

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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*.

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.

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.

Das ausgerechnet dieses Album nun auftaucht ist jedoch etwas ungewöhnlich, da sich erst in wenigen Stücken (Late in the Day) der große Wurf des gleichnamigen Folgewerks abzeichnet, jedoch weite Strecken von "In it for the Money" etwas zu sehr scheppern und unfein übersteuert, ja sogar die Songs unkenntlich produziert wirken.

I've been listening to Gaz Coombes over the last couple of years, at the suggestion of Spotify. He was a lot more floor-on-the-floor back in this Supergrass days, but he was still a good songwriter and a good singer. The LP get's off to a kickin' start, especially with Richard III. A handful of catchy songs.

Some of the songs were quite good like In it for the Money and Richard III. This band just doesn't seem to be made for ballads. It's Not Me is hard for me to enjoy.There are some songs such as Late in the Day that are in between and likeable.

Supergrass are a band where I get a lot more enjoyment from the albums than their big 'hits'. Alright et al have been overplayed to the point of annoyance. Which is why it is doubly refreshing to listen to an album without arguably their top 3 biggest songs on. Sun hits the sky hasn't quite reached that point yet

I liked this one. Had low expectations for '90s rock music, but this was enjoyable. A somewhat retro sound, with a handful of tracks I dug. Nothing too special, but this is a good album. Favorite tracks: Late in the Day, G-Song, Sun Hits the Sky. Album art: Very deceptive, thought this was some missing Crosby, Stills, Nash album at first glance. I like this though, pretty funny to see a band of hobos and one is playing a pristine upright bass. 3.5/5

I've never heard of this group. The album art looks like 60's trying to evoke 30's, but I see it is from 1997. The cover strikes me as a band that is very sure of itself. Not sure yet if they are goofy/fun or cocky. Seeing it is a double album I'm worried maybe the latter. The title track starts out sounding 90's British pop and fine but a tad boring. The next song, Richard III, has more energy and clear grunge vibes, with some interesting musical moments, which I'm liking. My hopes are dashed by the next couple of meh songs. As the album wears on I'm impressed by the variety, and the quirkiness is winning in places. All of the music is good (except maybe the ballad It's Not Me and Sometimes I Make You Sad which really don't work) and many the songs are very good, like Richard III. The band sounds great together and the production quality is faultless. But the album as a whole doesn't grab me. I expect if they had put half has many songs on this album I would have been blown away. Curious about the popularity of this band I checked out some other music. I like Alright tons and also St. Petersburg but HATE Moving. /Shrug

I liked the opening half of this album, but it didn't really sustain itself toward the end. Give it a try for some decent British rock (bordering on pop punk at times), but I think it falls short of "classic" territory.

I have this album on CD, but have never given it much of a listen beyond Richard III and Sun Hits the Sky. It seems I've been missing out all these years as it's a rather good collection of varied songs and much more complex and mature than their debut. It may have benefited from the brass and other non-guitar instrumentation being brought out more in production. 3.5/5.

90s Brit-Pop, with this, the second album I've gotten from Supergrass - a band I never heard of before starting this list. I wondered before what made them a 'must listen' and now that they have so far, two albums on this list, I wonder what is their catch? This is a good album, for what it represents. 3.5/5.

Beginning of the album felt like some quintessential 90s rock, later felt like their own genre. Love the breakdown in Sun Hits The Sky.

Favorite Songs - In It For The Money, Hollow Little Reign

J'aime beaucoup l'énergie du groupe. Le petit côté grunge de Richard III est excellent. La groove de G-Song est vraiment contagieuse. It's Not Me est un peu ennuyante. Il semblerait que Richard III serait plus dans la veine du premier album donc je vais me diriger vers cet album pour une écoute. Mais tout de même intéressant comme groupe.

22nd April 2022 Listened on the drive back home from the airport. Back to earth with a britpop bump. Quite nice to be driving through London listening to this, more so than other britpop records had the whimsy and folk tilt of the Beatles. Very eclectic album which I wouldn’t have associated with supergrass previously.

Après nous avoir passé des gros noms toute la semaine passée, je ne suis pas trop gâté en feux d’artifices cette semaine. J’ai trouvé l’album correct, un genre de Oasis moins dépressif et moins alcoolique. On dirait Sylvain Cossette qui joue du Brit Pop des années 1990.

Saved Prior: None Off Rip: Tonight, It's Not Me, Cheapskate Cutting Edge: None Overall Notes: Not a good sign of my enjoyment of the type of music a band is shooting for when the 3 songs I save aren't in the top half of most streamed on the album. Just came off a little too brash and noisy, and I gave this album a LOT of attempts to grow on me. A 2 feels harsh, but a 3 feels generous. A true 2.5 that I'm going to round down because score inflation.

Well, this is awkward. I feel like I should like this a lot better. It's basically pop classicism dressed up in late 90s attitude, meaning the vocals have a certain punk by way of grunge attitude, a certain snottiness. To be clear, I have nothing against that per se. Supergrass have clearly listened to a lot of music from the late 60s and early 70s and they've bothered to learn to play their instruments, and they're going for a relatively wide stylistic range, which theoretically already puts them way ahead of most of their contemporaries. And In It For The Money even sounds good, in terms of production--it's warm and balanced. But Supergrass doesn't have anything really new to say. They haven't figured out a way to make this music from the past truly their own. It's a pastiche without a point. None of the hooks or melodies really stick. It's pleasant enough going by, but I retained absolutely nothing. But at the same time, I'm reluctant to give this a poor rating. It's highly professional in terms of overall musicianship and production, and some real effort, thought and craft was put into it. It's obvious that these guys are playing and singing their hearts out. There is plenty of perspiration here but precious little inspiration. It's a shame, and really there's no one to blame, really. If you'd added in that X factor, In In For The Money might have truly been great.

Listened Before? N Ah yes, 1990s Britpop/rock. Not my favorite. Pros: It's not unlisten-able, and I get the sense that if I listened to it several times I might even start to be okay with it. It's a bit trippy and acidy at times in a good way. Can see how the style influenced later American and British acts. Cons: Droning, repetitive, noisy, lyrics that are difficult to understand. Added to Library? N Songs added to playlist: Cheapskate (a little groovier than the rest)
