Apr 17, 2017, 06:10 PM

In the mid 90s, some of the best and most exciting rock records came out of U.K., thanks to a generation of bands with tremendous style, spirit, and smarts. This movement was dubbed Britpop, and it was spearheaded by bands such as Oasis, Blur, Pulp, and Suede. In March, the music website Pitchfork compiled at list of the Top 50 Britpop Albums Of All-Time, for which Steve was asked to vote in. Are there really 50 great Britpop albums that are still worth revisiting? How does the era hold up? Steve talks it out with Pitchfork's associate feature editor Stacey Anderson, who spearheaded the website's Britpop list.
