Nothing Extra Nothing More - Day Four - Supergrass - Road To Rouen - 2005
When this album came out, I dismissed it immediately before I even listened to it. I had heard their previous albums, and I was convinced that they were still just angry screamy boys being silly. I never listened to the album, ever.
Then, for whatever reason I cannot remember, I decided to pull this one out. I think I may have heard one of the tracks on it somewhere or something, and thought, "maybe I ought to give it a listen...."
Surprisingly enough, Supergrass had grown up. They were still a little angry and screamy, but they were also more mature, and they weren't silly anymore. The tracks showed a definite maturity and growth, and Gaz Coombes had definitely shown to be a songwriter to be reckoned with. Doesn't he sort of have a neanderthal monkey face? Maybe I'm just being mean.
I feel bad and angry with myself for not giving the album a chance back when it came out. It's a great disc.
BUT, there weren't any b-sides, mixes or unreleased material. SO here it is....
