If U2 hadn't already released a pair of career retrospective discs, this British trio's second album would neatly do the trick in one. Not much of a surprise since Keane spent a good deal of time supporting Bono and company following the release their breakthrough debut, Read more

As a person who LOVED Hopes and Fears, I didn't think they could do any better. I'm extremely pleased to say that I was wrong. This is the best album I've heard in years. It is complete from the first song to the last. I just love the fact that it's so different from what is out there (I don't own any coldplay or U2 albums so I can't say if they're similar). The lowest rating I would give any song is 8.5/10. Almost every song gets a 10/10. This album gives me goosebumps it's so good.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
It is perhaps true that you don't like this album like Hopes and Fears in the first hearing, but, man ITIS SO MUCH BETTER THAN HOPES AND FEARS!! The frog prince, Crystall ball and Leaving so soon? are songs to make any band proud of their efforts. Tom Chaplin's vocals in The frog prince are simply awesome. There aren't many singers today that can sustain the chorus (Inherit the earth/ while your prince's crown) at such a high note. The music also is much better and varied than Hopes and Fears, where the songs were much similar from one to another (Listen to the intros of Somewhere only we know, Bend and break and Everybody's changing, for instance). Maybe, simply, I like the new darker and at times eerie sound of Under the Iron Sea more than its predecessor. After considering (and I still do) Hopes and Fears a five star album, I'd rate this one higher, if I could. I do really love this CD.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre
This is not truly a step down from their last album. (I still believe it is above Coldplay.) But this album is too smooth.There are just too many weak clichés and earnest heartfelt vocals.There is nothing original here and the band lacks any real substance.That being said this is a very tolerable album and is not trash and while the other album was not great, not a single song on this album matches "Your Eyes Open" from their last."Is It Any Wonder?" is a little edgy but it feels extremely commercial as it gets old after several listens.

Wow! Just when you're wondering if Coldplay can keep it up or have blown all their cookies producing Parachutes and A Rush of Blood..., boy, do they kick you in the pants to put you straight. This is more complex, more dynamic, simply more dazzling than anything they've produced so far (well, except for The Scientist. Doubt if they'll ever top that!). Too cool by far. If you loved their other stuff, boy, are you going to writhe in ecstacy over this. Best tracks? I could say all of them, but if I have to narrow it down- What if?, Swallowed in the Sea, 'Til Kingdom Come. Buy this!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great One from Cold Play
Songwriting and music equals that of A Rush of Blood to the Head. Possibly a more mature sound.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, absolutely beautiful
I would have written a review for this album sooner, but I was too busy listening.It will be hard to top this record.Every song is absolutely amazing.I haven't heard a record with this much mood since Pink Floyd's "dark side of the moon", I truely believe this record will hold its place with phenomenal albums such as the above mentioned.FIX YOU, has a special place in my heart and will until the day I die.

4-0 out of 5 stars Something Missing
I am not going to rate this particular album as compared to the other two Coldplay releases as they are all essentually the same quality.I really find that I enjoy listening to Coldplay, however it took a while to figure out why.I have decided that Coldplay represents to me what I miss from yesteryear on the radio, however, there is nothing groundbreaking or unique about Coldplay's music.For those younger people who believe Coldplay is the next this or that, well, they aren't.I think my biggest problem with Coldplay is they lack an identity of their own, which is why there is so much debate on who they sound like.Throughout their collection, I hear U2, Dave Matthews, Depeche Mode, the softer Smashing Pumpkins, and even Soundgarden (Daylight).Maybe it is commendable that they remind me of so many other bands, as it suggests they are not one dimensional.
5-0 out of 5 stars great album
Coldplay rocks! rocking, yet raw and spiritual, simple and moody, yet uplifting. "Politik" rocks while "clocks" is a beautiful and earthy song. Other standout tracks include "The Scientist", "in my place" and "amsterdam" great album, buy it if you dont already have it.

This is a quietly brilliant album by Coldplay. There's something for everyone here, from the rocking "Politik" to the celestial, beautiful "Clocks". I highly recommend it. ... Read more

i remember when this came out. i think i was in 6th or 7th grade. radiohead was known to me by the two songs "high and dry" and "fake plastic trees" from their bends album, so the name wasn't totally lost in my memory.

My college roommate played this cd relentlessly when it first came out & it won me over. More than one listen is probably a requirement in order to fall for this album. Its definitley out there. Apparently the lyrics are about the way machines dehumanize people but I loved to listen to the music even before I could understand what the heck the lyrics were saying.

This is a very good album.Lyrically, it doesn't do much for me, but musically, it's simple but poignant and says much deeper what the lyrics shallowly convey.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great album
This is easily the best album I have heard in the last 10 years. I haven't had an album that was this addictive since Pulp's Different Class. I don't listen to the radio a lot and the only song I had heard before was Somewhere Only We Know, so I was very pleased to find that there were 4 or 5 songs that I really liked. As I listened to it over and over, I found that each song was a masterpiece. I don't know where they can go from here, to me this was a perfect debut and they can't possibly do another album that can top this. Any band will be hard pressed to top this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest album ever made.
Keane is one of the greatest bands of all time. The fact that they use piano/keyboards/bass/drums on every song, with no guitars at all, shows that they are more musically sophisticated than all the other mindless guitar rock that's out there. There are more than enough guitar-based bands. "Somewhere Only We Know" is the best song of all time. Beautiful lyrics, solid piano backbone, and a steady, moderate tempo, make it a brilliant album-opener. The album has upbeat pop/rock, like "Bend and Break" and "This is the Last Time," slow, sorrowful ballads, like "She Has No Time" and "We Might as Well be Strangers," gentle, peaceful melodies, like "Sunshine," and slightly ethereal, unearthly ones like "Untitled 1" and "Bedshaped." Plus, all the lyrics are intensely personal and honest, ones that everyone can relate to, in one way or another. All together, the album is a classic, one that (if the American public knows anything about music) will live on to be known as one of the greatest albums ever made. Every song is a masterpiece. There are no fillers. ... Read more

Music doesn't come more touching than this. With their debut single alone, the emotion-fortified "Shiver," Coldplay prove they can shift between elated and crushed in a breath, as singer Chris Martin pours out music's oldest chestnut (unconditional yet unrequited love) with the shakiest of voices and a backdrop of epic guitars.

I remember going to a R.E.M. concert in Phoenix AZ circa 1994, waiting for ticket prices to go down just before the show while the warm up group played.That group had had one hit, Creep, but despite glowing reviews of their new album, I couldn't be bothered.A few weeks later Fake Plastic Trees arrived to me via a promo CD.I thought it was fantastic and decided to buy The Bends and check out the hype.
5-0 out of 5 stars Classic Radiohead
This was the first album of Radioheads I brought and after listening to all their other records I still believe it to be their best. The Bends was a major progression from debut Pablo Honey, it was still Radiohead but more organic.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Bends ~ A Perfect Radiohead Album
It's extremely difficult to pinpoint exactly where/how Radiohead were able to transform themselves into one of the most influential alternative rock bands of the 90's with songs that `hook' one in after a few careful and detailed listens. Their stuff is certainly powerful, sheerly brilliant and beyond beautiful, though occasionally a little odd (as in different) but very arty - which is a good thing in my book. The transformation probably began somewhere between ` My Iron Lung EP' and `The Bends', to safely say the least. They're not an easy band to `get into' but once you do get into them you will be captivated by their utter uniqueness and confidence in the music they make. And they're the kind of band that are willing to take risks. My introduction to the band came when I picked up `OK Computer' (the best music purchase of my life) in my local music store. It is indeed my favorite Radiohead album but believe me `The Bends' always comes a close second - sometimes I even prefer it to `OK Computer.' SOMETIMES. I can never really make up my mind now. Not taking the punk rock/grunge approach, as they did with their debut album, `Pablo Honey' (which was of mediocre quality, but the song `Creep' was a standout as a proclaimed self-loathing anthem), the songs in this album [The Bends] seem much more personal and therefore much more touching (`Fake Plastic Trees' is a simple yet beautiful song - one of the best). Frankly, I love pre-Kid A Radiohead so much better than post-Kid A because they weren't in their experimental stages but still gave it all their best and managed to release their follow-up masterpiece, `OK Computer' and finally they were hailed as the best new thing in rock. Something well deserved. `Just (Do It To Yourself)' is a strong, spunky and guitar driven song and the video (in horrific fashion) is just as good. `High & Dry' is a haunting ballad and my second favorite song in the album as Street Spirit (Fade Out) is my first. Though it usually varies. `OK Computer' is to a greater extent - a very complex, complicated, and obscure album, but if you are a first timer to Radiohead's music `The Bends' is the best album to start off with as it's their essential basis. ...

It was easy to see where Kasabian was coming from on its self-titled 2004 debut: Take Oasis' classic rock bluster, slap it together with the Chemical Brothers' acid-soaked club beats, and shake fiercely. But how to improve on a formula the British band already perfected with early singles like "Club Foot" and "Reason Is Treason"? That's easy: more of the same, only louder. On Read more

This album bombards you like a cold wave...totally worthy second album.'Nuff said

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad, bad, bad.
When I heard Kasabian's first single, "Club Foot", I was hooked. When I heard the rest of the album, I was disappointed, but still worth it. I recently downloaded their sophomore album, and I am horrified. It is very, very bad. It all sounds like a bad remix of their first album with new lyrics. Synth bass on every song, simple drums, synth guitar, uninspired lyrics, and guess what else, synthesizers. All there really is (on the majority of the album) is synth noise. Loud, synthesized noise with monotone lyrics. With most of the songs, I was ready to skip the track, but not because it's bad, but because it goes on too long. If you like it, that's fine, I'm just saying that it's just an expansion of their first album, but worse.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not like their first but still worthy
Kasabian's self titled first release is one that I found very enjoyable. Some of the tracks I rarely listened to but cuts like "Reason Is Treason," "Cutt Off," and "L.S.F." has this disc continually in moderate to heavy rotation in my car CD collection. The reasons I liked it so much was the use of electronica/keyboards along with great melodies and a real swagger.

Before Radiohead became the biggest critics' darling since Pavement or Dr. Dre, they were just another pre-Oasis British band with some loose indie ties, trying to gain some cred. Loopy enough to name this moody, often battering debut album for a Jerky Boys routine, they were also a lot more interesting when they hadn't yet learned the word "soundscape." "Creep," the miserably majestic single they now claim nearly ruined them, may not even be the best thing here; try "Anyone Can Play Guitar," an epitaph for River Phoenix before the fact. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Before The Nerdiness
I'll concede that OK Computer and The Bends were their peak performances, but this is still a good album from their "we-still-play-musical-instruments" stage of their career. After OK Computer they somehow morfed into this pseudo-intellectual computer generized cluster, that somehow became trendy for critics on both sides of teh pond to slurp. Pablo Honey isn't gonna win any awards, but at least it showed signs of traditional songwriting and musical talent, and not a bad soundtrack to a Nintendo game or a bad rip-off of Moby. Lets face it, nobody actually likes that stuff by Radiohead, but it feels pretty cool to say that you do, doesn't it?

4-0 out of 5 stars It grows on you.
Now before any of you give the below reviewer an un-helpful vote, read his profile, as he states that his reviews are jokes. Anyway, this was Radiohead's beginning. Thom and co. were from a city no one really heard about, but they were determined to make it in the music business. Keep in mind that Pablo Honey was made when grunge was still popular. Radiohead tried to make a record influenced by grunge without ripping off greats like Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and... Nirvana... who weren't all that great (and if I hear a Nirvana fan bash this...).
4-0 out of 5 stars Radiohead's Only Good Album!
People, get over yourselves. "OK Computer", "The Bends", and "Kid A" were all horrible and boring as hell albums. Few can deny that besides idiots. Here, they started off as a really good Brit Pop-Rock band with Grunge influences. If the band stayed this way, all their albums would be good and maybe they would ACTUALLY progress instead of making crappy boring electro indie alt whatever "music". Most of the songs on here are great, but I rated it a star less since I'm a bit tired of their only true rock radio hit "Creep". (I'm SERIOUS on that one, are you so called true Radiohead fans (even though I'm not lol w/e) getting this?) Still a decent song and better than any other crap they've done though. All in all, this is the only album by them you should EVER hear.

4-0 out of 5 stars Music to make your blood run cold
Terrifying and loveless music. This album's baroque drive and brilliant use of classical forms bring a theatrical excess to its despair. All the cruelty and luxury of the eighteenth century are here. The castrato "Micro Cuts" is excoriating - one can almost see the Marquis de Sade watching from the gallery. Debates about "Radiohead" or "not Radiohead" are missing the point. This is "progressive rock" in the very best sense.
3-0 out of 5 stars No match for "Absolution"...
Having highly enjoyed "Absolution", I figured "Origin of Symmetry" would be equally good. Though you can hear some of the musical seeds that resulted in "Absolution" in this album, they simply were not ripe yet and sound nowhere as good as the band's landmark production, released three years later. I would say pass on this album and, if you haven't, get yourself a copy of "Absolution" instead. ... Read more

A ghost, a band, a troubadour. Easily the strangest co-op project ever, and easily one of the finest and most evocative albums of the year. British socialist and folkie Billy Bragg was given unprecedented access to Woody Guthrie's unrecorded lyrics. Teaming up with alt-country band Wilco and quoting from more than 50 years of country, folk, and rock music, Billy and company bring Guthrie's politics, poetry, and morality to the end of the century and prove he's as necessary now as ever.

4-0 out of 5 stars Woody Guthrie Lyrics to Billy Bragg Tunes
You'll find yourself singing along after the first listen. California Stars and Ain't Nobody that Can Sing like me are new favorites for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Something to Bragg About, for Wilco ,too.
This is an example of the brilliance that results when two great talents join forces to write music and record the lyrics of American folk music icon, Woody Guthrie.Bragg and Tweedy collaborate seamlessly to set to music the words that Guthrie wrote over 50 years ago, and it still sounds fresh today.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
This is a reply to those reviewers who think that Guthrie "really wasn't all that left-wing" or that Bragg is, by comparison, too "didactic" or "rabidly left-wing" (as some would have it).The fact is that Bragg can't imagine being as politically radical as Guthrie was, not because Bragg is a closet liberal, but because Guthrie was a part of a radical movement in the United States the likes of which is simply not to be found in the U.S. or Britain nowadays.

This is my favorite album of the past 2 months. Unfortunatley, I can only say that half the songs are worth listening to and one of those didn't make it to the US version! Three songs into the UK version I was convinced I was listening to the album of the year, the next six bored me to tears. The US version spreads the wealth a bit by moving Doctors and Dealers to the middle of the album but that portion is still the weakest link.

Radiohead released their last 3 cds, but they didnt release it then and it proves to belimited in concept,tired in execution and basically reveals the end of the line for the group in its current direction. I cant wait to see where they head next.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Suggestion
Get over f***ing ok computer.I do not find any fascination or anything superior, unique, or defining within ok computer.It has some good songs. I do not consider ok computer as anything but a stepping stone toward Kid A and then beyond, in *my* personal interst - in generosity I see it as an INSULAR event, which means you do not expect it twice under ANY circumstances, and do not allow its shadow, if it has one to you, to land anywhere that it does not apply.In this situation it does NOT.Your listening capability is being colored by prior experiece, which is degrading to artistic value, and furthermore a selfish act.It is FINE to draw comparison, it is not okay to put two unlike things on an unbalanced scale.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!!
Absolutely mind boggling!!!Radiohead have done it again with a CD that blows your mind away.I followed Radiohead for this tour and listening to them live is like listening to the CD.Absolute perfection. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Bittersweet never sounded so good before or since...
So back in '97 I was driving along minding my own business when Bittersweet Symphony came on the radio and smacked me in the face. At least thats what it felt like. A pleasant smack. The kind that made me feel as if I had been zoned out all day until I heard the song and suddenly I felt alive! OK, maybe thats a bit dramatic, but you get the picture. I fell in love with the song, and even now 10 years later I still get swept up in the emotion of the song.
1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Believe the Hype
But for "The Drugs don't Work," which is marginal at best,this album is boring...cookie-cutter, nothing original.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing Bitter Here,It's all Sweet!
This album is a masterpiece!Most albums start out promising, then about three songs into it we lose interest and...turn it off.This album will surprise you,it get's better towards the end,"Neon Wilderness" is more of an intermission than an actual song,so you can't actually count that as a song,although I'm sure that there are some over zealous Verve fans out there that do,and that's ok.From the opening, soothing string arrangement of "Bitter Sweet Symphony" our hearts are held captive,then the whooshing rush of the full orchestra crashes in (this part,by the way,is the sample that Richard Ashcroft used and had to share writing credits with Jagger and Richards)and we are hooked without a doubt, to this beautiful song."Sonnet" is a touching ballad about friendship,"The Drugs Don't Work" isn't a song about drug abuse as the title may seem to impose,rather it's a moving ballad that Ashcroft wrote about the death of his father,it's difficult to listen to this song and not think of a loved one who has passed on."Lucky Man" is a brilliant song that Ashcroft dedicates to his wife when he performs it live.Simply put,every song on this album is a gem.Go out and buy this album now.Enjoy! ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as great as fans would have you think
Like the film, the Crash soundtrack is highly over-rated. Don't get me wrong--it's not bad by any means; indeed, Mark Isham is one of my favorite artists, and his score is much better than the film for which it was composed. But to claim this work is groundbreaking or the best soundtrack of the year/decade is naive and myopic.
5-0 out of 5 stars One the best sountracks in the 2005!
The movie crash was outstanding but one the most thing i loved from "Crash" was the soundtrack Wow! there is a lot amazing songs like "In The Deep","Maybe Tomorrow" and "Crash" all them are excellent,"Maybe Tomorrow" is my favorite song in this sountrack is a well made song and deserves to be nominated for best oringinal song beacuse in the deep was great but maybe tommrrow was way better,the song Crash was a little weird but still on the greatness,with an excellent mixed genres, the crash sountack is must to have for those who enjoy an oringinal and unbelivably beautiful sountrack.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Music Experience
This album is an experience.The songs are remarkable.I dont know if the movie makes the songs amazing or if the songs made the movie amazing or a little bit of both but this is the best soundtrack to a movie I have ever heard.I listend to this soundtrack on the bus on the way to my state track meet and it really kept me relaxed and even motovated.It might seem a bit odd that a down tempo album could motovate a runner, however, these songs were uplifitng and lively.Dont wait, get this album, I cant say enough about it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely grows on you
The first time I ever heard this album, I have to say, I was not blown away.Sure, there were some good songs, but it was not a spectacular album in my view.Then, after hearing it a few more times, it started to really grow on me and I realized what a great album it was.Don't give up on it after one listen, because you will be pleasantly surprised.It blends elements of blues, jazz, funk, and rock to make a potpourri of some great music.I think I might just like this album better than Split the Difference, although it is a very close race.I think my favorite tracks on this album are Tijiuana Lady, Rie's Car, Love is Better Than a Warm Trombone, and Get Myself Arrested.Overall, great album.. I hope you enjoy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gomez started a brilliant career with this one
"Bring it on" wasn't recorded in a big studio. Gomez didn't have any celebrity treatment making this album. They were just high school kids making a phenomenal rock album in a garage.
5-0 out of 5 stars Really cool psychedelic sound mixed with a bluesy sound
This CD has flavors of the late 60s/early 70s psychedelic sound incorporated into some modern alternative music. The first track Get Miles reminds me a little of the sound of Strawberry Alarm Clock's Incense & Peppermints, while Make No Sound, The Come Back and 78 Stone Wobble could have been extra songs from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Tijuana Lady and Bubble Gum Years reminds me a little of the old Pink Floyd sound when Syd Barrett was the lead signer. Tracks like Get Myself Arrested, Free To Run, and Rie's Wagon have a bluesy sound to them. Read more

Editorial Review

With the swaggering chords of the opening "Rock'N'Roll Star," Oasis announced that big, brash Brit rock was here to stay--at least for a few years. They wore their rock & roll with an angry young sneer, a Mancunian petulance wedded to a vision of cathartic release. Their supersonic two-guitar attack took them "Up in the Sky," where they would "Live Forever" or burn out in a blaze of alcoholic glory. Noel Gallagher's songs weren't subtle--or shy of overt plagiarism--but, spat out in the Lennonesque snarl of little brother Liam, they took on a venomous power that had millions of young Brits taking them at their own arrogant word. In the U.S., meanwhile, the response was more Maybe than Definitely.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars fantastic
i prefer this record over the stone roses debut which everyone thinks is the best british record ever.this still sounds fresh unlike the dated roses album.this is a great record and definitely oasis' best.better than morning glory btw.morning glory has the trinity of champagne supernova, don't look back in anger and wonderwall, but this DM has live forever and everything else on the album.the harder rockin oasis will always be better and this album deserves all the love it gets.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack to my Golden Years
Here I am, sat in England, several years after this album was first released.

This never fails me if I'm down in the dumps, a great mood raiser. Some of the greatest songs of the 90's have a home on this record. Definitely one of the greatest albums of the 90's. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Greatest Hits chronicles the remarkable journey of Mr Robert Williams, from being the "fat dancer from Take That" (c. Noel Gallagher) to the multi-million pound jewel in EMI’s crown. Assembled in chronological order, all the hits are here, except for his initial solo outing "Freedom", and it’s interesting to see how his sound evolves from wannabe Britpop buffoon on the sub-Oasis pubrock of "Old Before I Die" to the subtle captivating melodies of "Feel" and "Come Undone". There are so many great tracks that it’s impossible to list them all, but highlights have to be the barnstorming "Let Me Entertain You", the bouncy, floor-filling "Rock DJ" and the song that madeth the man, "Angels". The two latest additions to his canon--"Radio" and "Misunderstood" clearly have one eye on the past, the other on the future – with the latter an instant classic Robbie ballad from the Bridget Jones 2 soundtrack and the former a foray into the world of electro pop that sounds like a warped Human League track from the 1980s. This has to be Robbie’s forte, his ability to make great pop records that always sound fresh and full of energy. Every home should have a copy of this album, and chances are, by the end of 2004, most of them will. Read more

This is a wonderful album and Robbie is super.To me, he sounds like the "new Peter Allen".Does anyone else agree he sounds like Peter?
5-0 out of 5 stars wowwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i love this album. i really wonder why no one at my school knows who robbie williams is. all they listen to is ludacris and eminem. any way,my fav. is millenium. i didnt know of rob until a few weeks ago. i found out listening to riffs. on 8notes.com and ive been hooked ever since. if you want to hear a TRUE musical genius,buy this cd. you wont regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most popular singer that ever lived!
Robbie Williams is huge.We're talking GIGANTIC. He makes enough money to live three consecutive lifetimes.After a brief stint in Take That, he's enjoyed an IMMENSELY successful solo career that has won him acclaim and fame across the globe.Don't believe me?Then listen to this hits album. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Trainlistening.
In a world where every other movie has it's own soundtrack, few stand out. This one does to me. Obviously a liking for the movie helps, but even without the film this is an excellent listen. A great mix of old and new, mellow and upbeat. I mean when you stick Iggy, Lou Reed, and New Order on the same disc as Brian Eno, Blur, and Bedrock.....well you can't go wrong. Still a great play ten years later, and should be found cheap anyplace.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than the movie...?
When I started listening to this, it had been a year or so since I had seen the movie (which I liked), and I couldn't remember which scenes correponded to which tracks. Therefore I enjoyed it as a completley seperate work of art. When I re-watched the movie recently, I was almost dissapointed; the music actually seemed weakened in the context of the scenes. Don't get me wrong, Trainspotting is excellent, but the soundtrack stands indepedently and possibly even above it as a pop-culture watermark.5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for any lover of music.
I finally bought this CD after putting it off for years. I mainly bought it for Underworld, but this whole CD is cool. I'm not into Iggy or Lou, but I don't skip any tracks on this CD. This came out in 1996, but sounds so fresh and relevant to today's culture. My least favorite track is, Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," and my absolute favorite is, Blur's "Sing," which barely beat Primal Scream's "Trainspotting." The track that A track that surprised me is Pulp's hilarious "Mile End." Brian Eno is always good, and "Deep Blue Day" will give Eno more record sales. Blur's lead singer has the last track called, "Closet Romantic," which is a more of an electronic song. If you like emotionally charged tunes then go get this album. ... Read more
