It is, and continued with Setting Sons, even now after over 40 years of listening to them both I can't decide which of them is my favourite Jam album. My elder brother always had them blaring from his little box room. It's the music of my childhood, Dig the New Breed was my first ever vinyl purchase, when I was a kid.

They weren’t really my thing, but my mate’s favourite band. We saw them twice, both in ‘82

I'm going with all mod cons just ahead of setting sons

Lucky you, I was 11 when they broke up so never got the chance. A couple of mates got to see them on the final tour but they were a couple of years older than me.

The Village People’s attempt at a “punk” track is actually a fucking absolute stormer… 

 

Sped up and pitched back down by the uploader, improving the song considerably IMHO. Still, the original is still miles better than I would have thought the Village People could come up with.

Love the theory, and it definitely works for many band, looking at you Arctic Monkeys!

Doesn't work, in my opinion, for my favourite band The Jam, albums  3 and 4 are far better than 1 and 2.

There's always exceptions to any rule. 3rd albums by Bon Jovi, Primal Scream, Verve, Spiritualised are all considered to be better that previous output.

Here's my controversial opinion though: First Verve album is far and away their best. Urban Hymns, Bittersweet Symphony aside, is a load of cack.

I’m not sure I have ever made it through Urban Hymns without getting bored and switching off.

History and TDDW are the only two decent Verve songs.

As you say, polarising. Loved every song off the first album. It's between them and Stone Roses for the best debut album of all time. I don't think there's a single song from Humbug that I actually like.

That blows my mind. Secret Door and Crying Lightning are incredible. Dance Little Liar is up there with the greatest lyrics of all time in my opinion.

Watched Simon and Garfunkel: the harmony game tonight, reminded me - Bridge over troubled water is a better album than anything by The Beatles or The Beach Boys!

 

 

 

 

I mean, it's good. But that is clearly bollocks, apart from the Beach Boys bit.

I don’t know why such comparisons have to be made tbh, and certainly don’t agree, but it is an absolute classic.

The Sun Is Often Out is the best britpop album. They didn't need to release anything afterwards but they're the one band that need to do an anniversary tour for the people who were 4 years old when it came out (sorry @Mardy)

I love this album and endorse this statement. I also love the second album, albeit not as much.
