It doesn't suck, clearly. None of those songs I posted earlier suck. In fact, there isn't one song on the Second Coming that is as bad as Don't Stop or as repetitively average as Sugar Spun Sister.

Back on topic. I do have to inform you that I love most britpop bands and am certainly not elitist when it comes to Oasis, Blur, Suede, Pulp etc. I enjoy the hell out of most of their albums.

I think they did see themselves as an alternative to pop fluff, and of course it's nice to see that in the charts, and I suppose they were the alternative at least in the mainstream, but they weren't the best bands around, they were just the ones who were picked up on, and forced down your throat, like most other radio acts.

It's the same now, you have terrible bands dominating the indie radio in the U.K.

Have you noticed your tendency to state your opinions as facts? I have. I'll play it your way.
Second Coming does indeed clearly suck. It's all either guitar wankery or duller versions of songs on the s/t album. In the worst cases it's both.
Clearly.

I state my opinion the same way everyone else does. You said it sucks, are you "stating your opinion as facts" as well?

Now, it obviously doesn't suck.

My favourites are Oasis and the Manic Street Preachers, I've abused the hell out of the MSP albums.

I really should try SFA. I've heard great things about them, but my only slight exposure to them is Gruff Rhyss' featured spot on Plastic Beach.

This is where the term was coined...



It was never really meant to be a genre or a movement. It was just a way of giving attention to up & coming British bands of all types & showing people that you didn't have to listen to shitty Pearl Jam albums anymore.
Hell I even remember hip hop artists like Credit To The Nation, Fun-Da-Mental & Asian Dub Foundation being included with it at one time.

Trying to step away from the obvious (Blur's Modern Life..., Oasis' Defiantly Maybe, Pulp's This Is Hardcore, Stone Roses S/T, Suede's S/T), here's an "5 More" list.

Charlatans - Between 10'th and 11'th - OK, maybe not fully connected to "Britpop," but still mega in that time. Still, this under-rated second album remained the most interesting to me. This is the one with "Weirdo," "Chewing Gum Weekend," and plenty of other goodies. A favorite car tape way back in the day. Tellin' Stories is also another good album. Essential for: An artistically successful post-Madchester album that showed the growth of one of England's best bands of The 90's just when "Britpop" was starting to make a little wave here and there, although without the audience that made the debut and most of the ones that followed this a major hit.

The Las - S/T - Like The Stone Roses S/T, a landmark Debut album. They were ones that hinted at what was to come, but on a more "Traditional" style than the Roses' mix of style and Beat.

Suede - Dog Man Star - The very interesting album that those tired of the Parklife and Oasis got instead. "The Wild Ones" remains a classic to me. Honorable Essential Mention - Sci Fi Lullabies, the B-Sides collection. (Added On) I might direct others to the Singles collection for a full-on explanation of Suede's importance, especially with their first three albums, but Dog Man Star was the one that went into space when a lot of others were just hanging out at the bar.

Kenickie - Get In - Their final and far more interesting album. Slightly dark in places as well. It sounds like it's trying to achieve the greatness of This Is Hardcore, but it could not by a landslide, but it was still a very good try to break out of that limiting first album mode. Sadly, they had a quick rise and fall fast enough that only a few heard it. Essential for: another example of expanding the sound when the bar was closing down. (Added On) Hear this after This Is Hardcore.

Inspiral Carpets - Revenge of the Goldfish - Again, maybe not really connected to "Britpop," and kind of early to be a major part of it's height, but I seriously love their music. This was the one with "Two Worlds Collide," "Generations," "Dragging Me Down." I also liked Life and Devil Hopping as well, while The Beast Inside was dragged by a couple of non-event tracks (but still pretty good!). Some may vote for Life, but Revenge... is mine. (Added-On) A Best Of is seriously a great way to hear the band who once employed one Noel Gallagher as a roadie.
