Of the three I'd go with Blur, The Verve and then way, way, way, down the list would be Oasis.

Plus I still have a slight crush on Damon Albarn.

I still laughed, FTR.

1. Oasis
2. Blur
3. The Verve

Blur are way more talented than Oasis, but I just never felt the urge to explore their back catalogue beyond the Best Of. Mostly because I don't really like Damon Albarn as a vocalist.

Oasis, because their songs resonate more with me, and are more enjoyable. Consistently great listening.

Blur are super as well, but don't move me as much, and I've also never been tempted to thoroughly delve into their catalogue beyond the first BEST OF and a few of their studio albums.

While The Verve are also splendid, their music tends to dawdle sometimes without going anywhere. See Numbness off Forth as a case in point.

The Verve... oh unpopular opinion!!! I find Ashcroft's lyrics to be more effortlessly engaging than the Gallagher's and their music more pleasing than Blur, so this answer is purely based on entertainment quality, all have their merits.

Blur. I know their music the most of those three artists (and love what I've heard as well). Oasis, I just know their bigger songs, and the Verve I've only heard a couple songs by. I do like the few songs I've heard by those two bands, though-"Wonderwall" and "Bittersweet Symphony" are a couple of the best songs from the '90s, imho. Or at least, they're a couple of my personal favorite songs from that decade.

Pulp and Suede I've heard of and have heard a song or two here and there. Don't know much else about 'em.

Oasis.

Can't really stand Damon Albarn's voice. And The Verve doesn't do much for me.

I can't stand Damon Albarn's voice either and I find their songs a bit flimsy. LOVE The Verve to death, but Oasis is at the top in terms of '90's britpop. The haters are just mad that Oasis undeniably created the most memorable anthems of that era.

Right, because music is all about making anthems and has nothing to do with experimentation, lyric writing, or having two distinct eyebrows.

Exaaactly. It's also about who can conjure up the most tabloid drama. Also, you're angry cause you know you could never grow a monobrow like the Gallaghers. Don't h8, just appreciate.
