Supergrass are a vital band with much dollar value per square inch of music. I would guide people to their album 'life on other planets' it's a psychadelic punk mashup, brilliant song writing unique delivery. track that record down.

Wow, way to bump an old thread.

I like Supergrass a lot too, but I don't think I share the same enjoyment for their later stuff. It's been going down for them the last 3 albums, I think.

I should coco, In it for the money and Supergrass are all very good albums.

yeah i know a lot of people agree with you...I guess a part of me agrees to, the first 3 are the classics, maybe my opinion is coloured by the fact that I saw them when they were touring their later albums, I feel a stronger connection with the riffs, melodies, and production of the last 3 albums......

Especially on the last album, Diamond Hoo Ha, I think the Supergrass sound is getting somewhat watered down. They're sounding more and more like modern rock contemporaries .. Road to Rouen was a good album, I really liked songs like St. Petersburg, but I tired of the songs rather quickly and they had little replay-value.

whats your opinon of 'life on other planets'.....one of the songs off that album was meant to be on 'I should Coco'. I would say they are the third best live band I've ever seen!!!

Yeah Supergrass has done some pretty good stuff. I Should Coco got me hooked and I think its a pretty good start for people interested in this band. In It for the Money is good, Life on Other Planets I have but have not listened to as much as the others... on Road to Rouen you can definitely tell they are moving a step forward... almost more serious with their music and less silly as on I Should Coco.

It's a good album .. there are some enjoyable songs like brecon beacons, rush hour soul, seen the light, run, can't get up, funniest thing, run .. all those are good, enjoyable songs. But I don't think any of them really touch upon the genius of songs like Time (I should coco), Richard II (In it for the Money) or Mary (Supergrass) ..

I prefer Life on other Planets to road to rouen actually, but I think overall, the sound is a bit simpler and the songs again have less to keep you coming back compared to the earlier albums.

For example, most should be easy to play if you're learning guitar. :p
