Default 5 Essentilal Britpop Albums?

So, I've been pretty heavy into Britpop lately, and I thought maybe a thread like this would be able to introduce me to some favorites of you guys that I haven't heard yet, so let's get this started!

1. Oasis - Definitely Maybe

2. Blur - Modern Life Is Rubbish

3. Stone Roses - S/T

4. Manic Street Preachers - Holy Bible

5. Pulp - This Is Hardcore

So how bout you guys?

Regarding Pulp His N Hers is much more appropriate.

Try:

The Auteurs - After Murder Park

The best Britpop album is Elastica's S/T. The other four:

Suede - Suede
Blur - Modern Life is Rubbish
Pulp - A Different Class
The Verve - Urban Hymns

A big shout to The Auteurs too, New Wave is essential but I can't quite class it as Britpop, it was a little bit before its time, making it a big influence.

just as i wouldn't class Manic Street Preachers' Generation Terrorists (UK) as Britpop, it's more glam-punk

still awesome, though

The Stone Roses S/T isn't BritPop to be fair.

I love that Elastica album, both in fact.

Pulp also has Different Class under their belt, which is, in my opinion, a bit more consistent than This Is Hardcore. I'd also probably rank Parklife as Blur's essential Britpop album; at the very least, it made the bigger impact on the genre.

Depending on what you classify as Britpop, I could also see throwing in the Arctic Monkeys debut, though most people would throw that into a different genre altogether.

So who do you guys think is the overall best Britpop band?

I'm definitely gonna check out that Elastica album, is their second album worth buying?

Also, I never listened to the Stone Roses "Second Coming" is that any good?

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?

My overall favourite is probably Parklife, though there are several that are up there with it.
