If I Should Coco is a great explosion of exuberant youth, this album shows a clear progression in Supergrass' career. What happened? They grew up considerably. The loss of the wide-eyed youth of before is compensated by some great music.

Supergrass are now more developed in musical terms, their endless influences are still present but the way they mix it is more original, going often to psychedelia for their inspiration.

So this is another great album by them. Finally coming out of the desert represented by Robbie Williams and Mariah! Maybe this is why this album sounds so great as well, by comparison to what I've been forced to endure lately.

Final Grade



From Wikipedia:

It is speculated that Parlophone, the record label Supergrass were on, offered the band a sum of money to decide on a final name for the album, because they were taking too long to deliberate. However, the band themselves claim that they never received any of this money in return. Other suggestions considered for the title of the album included: 'Hold Onto The Handrail' and 'Children of the Monkey Basket' (which is now the name of the band's self-run website).

I don't think that was really a "desert" and more of a night in the gutter.
