I saw them years ago and stupidly never followed up.
Essential albums or tracks? Best of The Beatles?
Perfect From Now On is their best album I think closely followed by Keep It Like a Secret
would be my joint #2 with Keep It Like A Secret. It was the first album of theirs I heard though, so I'm probably biased.
same with Car.
Liar's a great song too.
Love this band.
I would start with 'There's Nothing Wrong With Love' or 'Keep It Like A Secret' as more accessible albums.
is my favourite track and i enjoy 'You In Reverse' just as much as any of their 90's records.
getting to see them perform it live was just the best thing ever :D
is definitely my favourite, but I do enjoy Perfect from Now On, especially Stop the Show. It is also very difficult to listen to In The Morning from There's Nothing Wrong with Love and not have a constant grin.
I finally saw them last year in Munich and it was pretty good. Given my love of the band, I was expecting it to be the best thing ever, which it was not, but it was definitely enjoyable.
Def start with either Keep it Like a Secret or There's nothing Wrong With Love, then straight to Perfect From Now On, one of my all time favourite records.
They are generally great live too. Saw one shonky show at Primavera, and some stinky sound at the start of an ATP show, but otherwise always been bang on the money. And that voice. Yowsa.
loved it when I was 16, still love it to bits now. Perfect From Now On is good but a bit slow and trudgy, There's Nothing Wrong with Love is awesome too.
Then get Perfect From Now On and (the weirdly under-rated) There Is No Enemy.
simply because it's got 'Goin' against your mind' on it.
