Comments about Mansun:

Even though they are part of the Britpop wave of the '90's, Mansun have always contained so much more than your average Britpop band. All along they've taken a different approach to their music and created albums that will shine long after Britpop has been swept away by the next big thing. To me, Mansun are a little pearl in an enormous ocean of British Oasis wannabe's, but with a personality that's truly their own.    Le Mec

"Arriving in the aftermath of Brit-pop, Mansun was one of the first British guitar-bands to depart from the prevailing styles of the mid-'90s, leaving both light, Beatlesque pop and studied trad-rock behind. Mansun has more in common with early '90s bands like Suede and the Manic Street Preachers, groups that stood defiantly outside of the pop spotlight, yet managed to cultivate a devoted fanbase. By combining a dark, grandiose vision with the driving intensity of hard-rock and the stylish swagger of New Romanticism, Mansun don't sound a thing like their contemporaries."    Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All-Music Guide
