Supergrass - Supergrass is 10
by Gary Schwind

This is an excellent collection of celebrating the first ten years of Supergrass.  One disc is a compilation of the greatest Supergrass songs so far.  The other disc is a toned-down live version of a lot of their greatest hits.  James released a similar “best of” compilation where Disc One was their greatest studio recordings and Disc Two was a mostly acoustic live performance of some of their best songs.

Disc One of this compilation kicks off with “Caught by the Fuzz” from their first album I Should Coco.  They follow that up with “Pumping on Your Stereo” in which Gaz sounds a lot like Mick Jagger.  

The real charm of Supergrass is that they can sound like The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Radiohead and other British bands, but they maintain their own personality.  For example, the beginning of “Moving” sounds a lot like Radiohead, but then moves into a rollicking glam rock chorus that sounds like Slade.

Supergrass moves comfortably from Ramones-style punk (“Caught by the Fuzz”) to glam rock (“Moving,” “Mansize Rooster”) to good old-fashioned rock n roll (“Seen the Light,” “Sun Hits the Sky,” and “Kiss of Life”).  What makes Supergrass a great band is that they can move easily from one to the other, and even incorporate various influences into one song. 

Frankly, there aren’t a lot of negative things to say about this collection.  It includes all the Supergrass songs that a fan of the band will love.  It conveys the energy that Supergrass brings to both their recordings and their live performances.  There is one area where I will grade this album down, but it’s not a big thing.  The live album contains ten songs that appear on the “Best of” disc and only two songs that don’t appear on the “best of” disc.  If I were the stuffed suit assigned to this album, I would have made more of a difference between the live disc and the studio disc.  Like I said, it’s not a big thing, but I have to grade this collection down slightly for that.
