One more thing, I only have Radiator by the Super Furry Animals, what else should I pick up by them? Is their Outspaced collection any good?
Blur easily, if we're going by the normal Britpop bands and not adding in semi-BP bands like The Stone Roses and The Arctic Monkeys.

it pretty much sucks compared to their debut

on its own, it's alright, no great shakes

The Second Coming is a very good rock album. Some tracks on there are completely awesome.



(short version, there is about 4 minutes of nonsense before it starts)

Britpop is a very subjective title, because there is no similarity between artists, sort of like how people bicker over what is and isn't grunge.

It wasn't a style, just a genre that many bands fell under in that is pretty wide. For example, there's really no stylistic similarity between Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains.

Other genres are usually pretty similar between bands, but grunge and britpop have very loose defining qualities.

That said, you could go with something from Blur, Oasis, Suede, Pulp, Manic Street Preachers, Supergrass, etc. and have a pretty good list.

Ofc, those artists evolved beyond the britpop thing, too.

I really need to give The Stone Roses another try. Theoretically they seem like something that would be right up my alley, but I just don't care much for what i've heard of them.

They say the Stone Roses self-titled was the album that started britpop. So, I guess that should be enough to get it on the top 5 list. Yes, britpop is a pretty vague term and genre but I would say the same about many other genres too.

I really like The Verve's Urban Hymns and Oasis' debut album. I guess these three would be the essential britpop albums for me.

Btw, does early Radiohead count as britpop?

What even is "britpop"? It's not even a genre. More a semi-mainstream, pretending were all indie and underground movement.

I've always understood it as being a resurgence of 60's-style british pop music in the mid-90's, albeit with lots of modern touches. Most of the "britpop" bands, though, ended up spinning off into different genres. And then you have bands like Pulp who didn't really seem to fit the definition at any point in their career, or bands like Arctic Monkeys who theoretically fit the sound of the genre but not the time period. So, it's pretty ill-defined in the end.

Kaiser Chiefs and Kooks are also like that, but the genre was so all over the map.

I really never got the 60s british pop thing, because they weren't recording simple rhythm and blues type stuff. Really, the britpop was completely different from the british invasion stuff. I think the only thing really tying it to that is homeland and maybe subtle influences.
