I was going to say the same thing. Free All Angels was a real second act for them both in the UK and here. Shining Light even won an Ivor Novello awward.

I personally don’t count Travis as Britpop.

Yeah, they definitely weren’t considered britpop though their commercial ascent took place during that time period – EMG and This is My Truth particularly.

Britpop is my jam. And the single best song released during this period was by Manic Street Preachers:

A Design for Life

Nothing any of the other titans of Britpop released can touch it (though The Universal can try).

Best thing Paul Epworth has ever produced is the single version of Friendly Fires’ Skeleton Boy.

I consider Sea of Love to be a towering achievement for them, so I wouldn’t mind hearing it again!

Woah now – Darts of Pleasure was every bit Take Me Out’s equal. The final chant in German is *excellent*.

Trying to envision The National soundling like a muscular rock band. That just doesn’t seem in their DNA to me, but I’ll be damned if Sea of Love isn’t a ROCKIN’ song.

As for this – I really enjoy it.

Dimensions is one of the most moving pieces of music I’ve heard. In the context of the film, it’s amazing.
