Mansun's 1997 debut Attack of the Grey Lantern crosses Britpop influences with older American influences in a wildly interesting combination

Thanks to a Requested Review, we’re able to continue our Britpop month with Mansun and their debut released from 1997, Attack of the Grey Lantern. We (re)discover the perils of trying to review a record released with different versions for the US and UK on various streaming platforms, and not communicating about it before the review. Still, we managed to form some coherent thoughts about a band that draws as much from their nearby Britpop influences as American bands from decades earlier.

Coming soon
