Album Review

Essentially, Supergrass' eponymous third album is a refined, subdued extension of In It for the Money. Where that album was a supremely confident, head-spinning musical kaleidoscope, splendidly shifting focus from track to track, Supergrass is down to earth, mellow, and unassuming. Part of the trio's charm has always been that they're unabashedly unpretentious, since their casual attitude made their considerable musical skill all the more impressive. On Supergrass, that casualness occasionally crosses the line into laziness. It doesn't happen all that often, but there are moments on the album that feel tossed-off, such as "What Went Wrong (In Your Head)" and "Beautiful People." This is particularly evident because these also-rans are surrounded by songs that are as great as anything Supergrass has ever recorded — the harpsichord-driven, pulsing "Your Love"; the stately, sophisticated "Shotover Hill"; the gleeful absurdity of "Jesus Came From Outta Space"; or the breezy, infectious summer single "Pumping on Your Stereo." The disparity in material also hammers home the point that Supergrass doesn't quite gel, the way their first two albums did. There were no themes behind those two records, but the performances and songs shared a similar spirit. The third album is simply a collection of moments, some spectacular and some average. While that may come as a slight disappointment, since I Should Coco and In It for the Money are two of the greatest pop albums of the '90s, the songs that work on Supergrass — and they do account for well over half the record — confirm that the 'Grass remain one of the most gifted, irresistible guitar pop bands of their time.

Customer Reviews

Different But Great

Supergrass has done it once more with their third album "Supergrass". The CD is self titled. The band is sounding more mature and the music isn't just a joke anyomore. But it still sounds like Supergrass we know. The album has a mellow sound to it. I love it. I give "Supergrass" a 5 out of 5.

A Trip from the Ordinary

This album marks the furthest departure from their origins moreso than any album before it. The trippy songs are definately worth a hear, but the album isn't as complete as any of their others. 4/5

yea

really great music. really great band name.

Biography

Formed: 1993 in Oxford, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Like many other British bands of the '90s, Supergrass' musical roots lie in the infectiously catchy punk-pop of the Buzzcocks and the Jam, as well as the post-punk pop of Madness and the traditional Brit-pop of the Kinks and Small Faces. Perhaps because of its age -- two of the trio were still in their teens when they recorded their debut single -- the band also brings in elements of decidedly unhip groups like Elton John, as well as classic rockers like David Bowie, the Beatles, and the Rolling...
