I'm not that impressed by it. It's okay, though...

I don't think I like music much anymore.

That's cool, Skeek.

I'm still waiting on my CD store to get in the album....they're taking forever. It's starting to tick me off.

if they're coming anywhere near you there's a good chance it might be less to buy the cd at the show. was 15 bucks CAD at the show i was at and most stores have it for 20

Sorry, got kicked off the computer before I could finish. Anyway, Britpop is/was more of a scene than a particular kind of music. Britpop was about lad culture, New Labour, Britishness.... things I don't think many 00's bands exactly stand for. Britpop was also very inspired by 60's British bands like the Kinks and the Beatles, as well as mods. There are bands that definitely make the same sort of music as Oasis, Pulp, Suede, Blur, etc., but none that have been mentioned. To lump Elbow, Radiohead, Doves, and I Am Kloot into the same genre as Oasis just because they come from the same island is a bit lazy, I think.

I agree, meggie.

for example, Seafood and Kent or by no means Britpop...they are Alternative Rock in everyway

Doves and Elbow walk a thin line between the vain sentimentality of brit pop and the attempt to leave all that behind through obscurity and quasi-experimentation...in the pursuit to be a pale imitation of Radiohead.

seems like most british bands either come directly from the beatles and bends era radiohead...or from latter day radiohead.

I don't have a problem with britpop, really.
if I do sometimes, it's because
a)the British press hypes EVERYTHING like it's the beatles all over.
I think there's actually a lot of hype around what I had for breakfast...though its certainly not British.
b)a lot of these bands use 'safe music' as a backdrop for their relentless attempts to make me feel sad.

but I must thank you for turning me on to seafood...I quite enjoy the album I have (when do we start fighting)
