Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
In It For The Money
From the opening one-two punch of the title track and “Richard III,” it's clear that IN IT FOR THE MONEY is the work of a band in it for kicks. Supergrass' sophomore album still has the infectious sense of fun that made their debut so appealing, but there's also a newfound maturity – Brit-pop's boy wonders were on a musical growth spurt. The trio aren't afraid to vary the tempo here, and successfully spike the punch with sped-up guitars, horns and percussion loops. More important than these production flourishes, Supergrass also serve up one of their best sets of songs, including singles “Going Out,” “Sun Hits The Sky” and “Late In The Day,” and the collection went on to sell more than a million copies worldwide. Frontman Gaz Coombes turns 40 today, and we'll help him ring in the birthday with IN IT FOR THE MONEY.
