Product Description

Supergrass ~ Supergrass

Amazon.com

Supergrass may be the unluckiest band to come out of the Britpop wave of the early 1990s. Their first album, I Should Coco, saw the trio typecast as a cartoonish indie boy band propelled to stardom by the adolescent hijinks of "Feel Alright" and "Caught by the Fuzz." Unfortunately, this tag proved rather difficult to shake and as their music matured, their audience dwindled; their second album, In It for the Money, was released to critical acclaim and consumer indifference. By the time Supergrass was released in 1999, the band had already been relegated to the "Oh yeah, I remember those guys" category of pop. What a shame, because Supergrass is at least as good as In It for the Money--and that album was fantastic. Flaunting their '70s-rock influences proudly, Supergrass continue to sound like the world's greatest garage band with a sack full of studio toys. These guys know what makes a good pop song: "Pumping on Your Stereo" is practically shouting out for an audience of handclaps, while "Shotover Hill" makes use of the oft-neglected kettle drum. With Supergrass, the boys have again demonstrated how much they've grown up. Pop music, yes, but definitely not kid's stuff. --Robert Burrow

how good this CD is. However, I will try. Since "I Should Coco", their music has evolved over time from a happy-go-lucky, quirky, bouncy, teenage Brit-pop, to a thoughtful, self-introspective, more mature, finely-tuned, highly-melodic, clever Brit-pop. "Moving" is a prime example. Since my mind is blanking on superlatives, I'll leave it at this: it's an import CD worth owning!

Everything about Supergrass (the album and band) is fresh. Loud guitars, popping bass lines, loads of handclaps, and a lead singer that sounds a ton like Mick Jagger equates to fun intelligent brit-pop-rock. Avoiding the rainy, mellow moods of Travis and Coldplay and the pulsing ambient-rock of Radiohead's and Blur's last albums, Supergrass's sound echoes brit-rock of days passed: Rolling Stones, the rockier stuff of The Beatles, The Kinks. It has the same quality of those three bands; it's in-your-face while at the same time being melodic. Each song is great, but the highlights are "Moving" "What Went Wrong In Your Head" "Pumping on your Stereo" and "Mama and Papa." Moving is a pounding song about the need to stay in constant motion to avoid facing emotional pain. It is similar to their single, "Late in the Day" in that it starts off really simple with lead singer Gaz Coombes singing alongside an acoustic guitar, and then after a minute, the popping bass lines, loud guitars, and handclaps come in. It is probably the best song on the album. "What went wrong in your head" is very Rolling Stones-ish. It starts off with its catchy chorus: "what went wrong in your head, while we sat in our beds." and then a "la, la la" interlude follows that is very reminiscent of the Stones. "Pumping on your Stereo" is the song most people in America have heard, due to its inclusion in the Road Trip soundtrack and the groundbreaking music video that featured Supergrass in puppet outfits. It is such a brilliant mix of pop song-writing expertise that anyone with an ear will immediately respond to its rousing guitar riff. "Mama and Papa" is truly a beautiful song.Read more ›

Supergrass are one of the few British groups making pop music with no strings attached. That is not to say they are a better group than say Blur, but Supergrass have a kind of simplicity that lacks in even the best of Britpop groups.
First single Pumping on Your Stereo is a fine example. A hook ridden, Stonesesque rocker with wonderfully throwaway lyrics. (Life is a cigarette/You Smoke to the end) At first the song comes across as simple but after several listens the chorus will be ingrained into your skull forver. Opener (and second single) "Moving" opens with Gaz Coombes singing gently over some middle of the road string section about how "the days all feel the same." Then the chorus kicks in with its funky bassline and vicious guitar hooks. This is one of those rock songs that makes you want to get up and go and smash things.
The word "maturity" has been used a lot when describing this album. Sure, there is no Strange Ones, Mansize Rooster or Alright here, but personally I would never want the group stuck making punk records in 1994 a la "I Should Coco." "Shotover Hill" (a mature song) is a wonderful Kinksy ballad that is deeply affecting and What Went Wrong in Your Head? is hooky but not throwaway fluff either.
Each of these songs is beautifully structured and are all memorable in their own way. "Mary", "Beautiful People," "Jesus Came From Outer Space" and especially the Lennon-like Mickey Quinn penned "Mamma and Pappa" are all classics.
Supergrass are a rare breed of group. They make simple, perfect pop music that can be played anytime of day in any mood. (Like Canuck group Sloan.

From the very start this album hooks you with the first track MOVING. Rather than talk about the album song by song, which would far exceed the maximum of 1,000 words, I have decided post a picture. I figured that a picture is worth a thousand words and would save lots of time... Perfect!... I have just realized that you can't do that. If you could though, I would post a picture of a gold fish, or a golden retriever. Or perhaps a bar of gold, because that what this album is. GOLD! It is chalked full of tracks that you and your frieds can lesten to, or dance to, or pogo stick to. This is definitely some of thier best work. Thank you for reading my review, I hope it was very helpful.

Please, don't take this review wrong. I give the album 4 stars because it is great music and it's better than just about anything out right now. However, I was disappointed when I first heard the album. "I Should Coco" and "In It For the Money" are two of my favorite albums ever, and when I heard the first single "Pumping On Your Stereo" I was expecting a somewhat similar album to the other two. However, "Supergrass" is a drastic change from the past. They really have grown up apparently. The punk rock influences on the first two albums are virtually gone on this album. Despite the disappointment, the album is still excellent and grows on me with every listen. I really like the songs "Eon," "Faraway" and "Pumping On Your Stereo." Overall, I would recommend this album to Supergrass fans and all British pop fans in general. It is a good album and it is definitly worth buying.
