Could we get a definition of what constitutes Britpop? I don't want this to turn into an argument about the definition, but there should be some criteria. Two examples: why doesn't Radiohead's 'The Bends' count as britpop? And how does Los Angeles based band Eels fall into this category as I don't recall them doing anything remotely "britpop" sounding?

Also, are we limited to the bands listed in your post?

Here are some definitions of BritPop from allmusic.com. Also there we find a list of the top artists from Brit Pop.

No, your not limited to the bands I posted. I thought maybe it's easy for the ones that don't know much Britpop bands.

(1) Suede - Dog Man Star
(2) Suede - Suede
(3) Oasis - What's the Story Morning Glory
(4) Pulp - Common People
(5) Echobelly - I Can't Imagine The World Without Me

I personally think A Northern Soul is better than Urban Hymns but I'm not sure if it could be considered Britpop.

Thanks POP-ROMANCER. That helps me as I've only flirted on the outskirts of most britpop. Here's my top five:

Stone Roses...Stone Roses
Doves.........Lost Souls
Blur...........Parklife
Ride....Nowhere ( I guess this is more shoegaze, but I don't own much britpop)
Travis.....The Man Who

I honestly don't consider the Stone Roses part of Britpop. Most of their best stuff was done before the phrase Britpop had even been coined. But more importantly it was too dance oriented to be considered Britpop I feel. Similarly I wouldn't consider the Charlatans to be Britpop.

But these definitions are always going to be arbitrary.

interesting... I was just coming in here to look up what people had to say on Travis. I really dont know them all that well. Just watched the Live 8 DVD yesterday, and took a liking to them and their song Sing.

Any suggestions as to which album to check out first?

Good Feeling is much more of a rock record than anything else they recorded. Loads of distorted guitars, very few acoustic guitars.

I like this thread, glad to see someone else give Modern Life Is Rubbish a mention, it's a masterpiece.

The Wonder Stuff: Never Loved Elvis
Ride: Going Blank Again
The Boo Radleys: Giant Steps
Ned's Atomic Dustbin: Are You Normal?
Teenage Fanclub: Bandwagonesque

As far as I'm concerned, Brit-Pop had it's "glory years" from 1990-1993.
