SUDDEN DEATH! The 4th Interference Album Listening Party. Brit-Rock Version Redux

We had a 3 way tie in the original run-off:

http://forum.interference.com/t157241.html

1. The Charlatans- Us & Us Only. 1999



2. Suede- Dog Man Star. 1994



3. Supergrass- Supergrass. 1999




So now we go to sudden death. Pick the album you wanna listen to.

All 3 are a sonic treat.

Poll will close in 1 day.

I counter your vote with "Us and Us Only."

Only because I'm listening to it right now!

Each of these records represent major growth for each band. That helps make them amazing, though, if each were a debut, they'd still be highly ranked.

The Charlatans began recording in 1989, and had a distinctive dance/hammond organ sound. A poor man's "Stone Roses." They really began to spread their legs with 1995's self titled LP. The songs began to overtake the sonics. Organ was replaced with piano, and Tim began to move away from his Ian Brown inspired vocal. Dare I say, they found some soul. With the release of "Us & Us Only", they progressed into another world. Pianos, acoustic guitars, Dylan inspired melodies. It's their watershed record. Concrete lyrics that actually meant something. Make fun of "soul" all you want, when a good band finds it, they become a great band.

Suede had to follow up 1993's self titled masterpiece with "Dog Man Star." Tall order. But they did it. It's a far reaching, emotional record stuffed with everything. Songs, performance, drama. They could make a Broadway play out of this thing. It's epic. The final Suede record with the songwriting/guitar input of Bernard Butler, a fucking genius. It's romantic, sweeping, and completely engaging. Suede were never the same after Bernard left. Thankfully, he and Brett are back together.

Then there's Supergrass. Their first 2 records were all abount energy. Pounding, sweaty, sexy, youthful energy. Rock & Roll. Fast melodies with a wink. With their 3rd, self-titled LP, they slowed things down. The melodies were spread out, slowed down, and the energy was allowed to simmer. It suited them. They found a 70's space/funk/rock thing that just let their groove move. Their lyrics now it had a humanity in them beyond geting laid or doing coke. They could still pound out good times, but now they were singing about the morning after, and they were good at it.
