Another side effect of the Oasis/Britpop hype was The Verve becoming, for a short while and in the UK at least, absolutely massive. Walking into a McDonald's in Cambridge hearing "Sonnet" playing on the loudspeaker was the moment I realised Britpop had finally crossed over into the mainstream proper.

An album I only discovered relatively late (roundabout 2004, the same time I first came upon the immortal Lift Your Skinny Fists), and I definitely regret that my 18-year old self didn't listen to this. [First added to this chart: 05/17/2017]

Not in the top 200 for the year? Not even close to the top 100? Oh man. This was one of the highlights of the Britpop era! Tomorrow, Waltzing Along and She's a Star (the latter a top ten hit, no less) are some of the best songs in James's repertoire. I wonder if the cover - which, diplomatically put, is a matter of taste - may have something to do with its low ranking. [First added to this chart: 01/12/2018]

Experience was their "Rave acts can make albums too!"-album. Jilted Generation was the "Rave acts can be political and sorta kinda make concept albums!"-album. This? It's the "Let's cross the Atlantic and MAKE LOADSAMONEY"-album. In a way it should have been the final Prodigy album, but alas. A genuinely good album in parts but hints that there won't be very much of interest coming in the future. [First added to this chart: 05/17/2017]
