Attack Of The Grey Lantern
Mansun were on the more proggy side of Britpop. Their progressive sound was the touchstone for their experimental (in Britpop terms) debut LP. Their curiously opulent pop songs, string arrangements and playful ambient noise shared much in common with Tears For Fears and to some extent Talk Talk. Artistic and compelling with vivid character portrayals it would be easy to lose flow and focus with such grand profiling yet Attack of The Grey Lantern is strangely mesmeric.
