Mansun - Six

Mansun was a Britpop band, in the loosest sense of the word. They liberally and successfully incorporated prog and psychedelica into their act, giving them an experimental flavor that was unfortunately lost amongst the Blurs and Oases of the time. This 1998 release has the dubious distinction of being one of the most underrated British albums in recent memory. It really is up there with the great concept albums of all time, and to not hear it in its entirety would be a crime against music. Their debut album, Attack of the Grey Lantern, was received better by the music community, but this is definitely the more intriguing, rewarding listen.
