That Supergrass had enough full-tilt pop gems to fill a 21-track best-of album last year came as little surprise; that its cover was emblazoned with a pin-badge proclaiming 'Supergrass is 10' was a different matter. Had they really been with us for a whole decade?
In truth, their four studio albums suffered from gratuitous moments of stoner humour and self-indulgent whimsy but it took this collection to truly nail why we love them so. Whether pumping out glam stompers, new-wave riffs or acoustic laments, it's the exhuberance dripping from every chord that makes them one of the finest British singles bands.
