The album is widely considered the seminal record for the ‘Madchester’ movement, associated with the ‘baggy’ sound, baggy jeans and fishing hats.

The record is seen as a pillar of British music. In 2006, NME declared it the greatest British album of all time.

Definitely a top-5 album, maybe the best outside of the big-4 from Floyd.

Incredible album-- When I first discovered it, I literally listened to it non-stop on repeat and nothing else for a few weeks. Probably one of the most accessible out of my favorites too, and I think it's my favorite one from when it was released until now (there's other stuff I like more that was released before it).

The popular answer seems to be Made of Stone, but Bye Bye Badman is my favorite track on the album. It's in the lower end of my favorite songs list.

Full album here:

I did the same exact thing.

It's so damn listenable, even compared to other incredible albums.

Yeah. It's not even a concept album or anything, but the songs flow into one another perfectly. Once I start, I just keep telling myself "one more song" and end up listening to the entire thing.

I Am the Resurrection is my fav on the album, btw, followed by Sugar Spun Sister.

One thing I always got a kick out of was the way Ian Brown visually looks a bit like a d-bag singing karaoke every time he performs

I love the way I Am the Resurrection climaxes and tricks you into thinking it's the end of the song like five or six times, each time more infectious than the last.

I think the album is a little too revered, but no question, it has held up extremely well. Lots of those melodies never really went away.

IMO, I Wanna Be Adored is also one of the best album openers ever.

Yeah, I never really got the admiration. I really got fed up of seeing "Fools Gold" played on MTV Europe constantly back in the day.
