The Charlatans U.K. by Charlatans U.K.
Released: Sep 1995
Label: Beggars Banquet
The Charlatans smoothly rode the Britpop wave, bouncing back to No. 1 in the U.K. with this 1995 self-titled fourth release. Mixing psychedelic and bluesy guitars with washes of organ and Tim Burgess' nasally howls, it's a sound both indebted to Brit legends ("Here Comes a Soul Saver" borrows from Pink Floyd; "Just When You're Thinkin' Things Over" boogies like The Rolling Stones) and willing to take advantage of Madchester's baggy style and druggy excesses ("Nine Acre Court" grooves like The Stone Roses leading a stadium sports chant; "Thank You" is for that last dazed dance of the night).
