Rock music has never been as big in Britain since the Britpop craze in the mid ‘90s. Sure, the indie rock revival scene of the noughties was a commercially successful trend, but not in the same way as the former. Bands like Oasis, Blur, Suede, and many more were hitting the tabloids constantly, picking up awards left, right and center, and selling records like hotcakes.
However not every album from the Britpop era garnered the same widespread recognition as, say, Definitely Maybe or Parklife. It’s a shame too, because there were some fantastic records released during the period, but they got lost at sea during the momentous time in British music. Well, it’s time that was put right.
Whether they were critically panned or commercially unsuccessful – there were a number of worthy Britpop albums that never amassed a large following. Here are the ten most underrated of the bunch.
