Life On Other Planets (Remastered Edition) - 2LP Colour Vinyl
1 x 12”, 1 x 10” EP
Wallowing in international success and critical acclaim generated by their three previous albums, Supergrass released Life On Other Planets (L.O.O.P.) in 2002, their fourth top 10 album.
Eight years of touring had established Supergrass as one of the most highly regarded and accomplished live bands in the world. In January 2001 the band took a break and, armed with wine, cigarettes and acoustic guitars, barricaded themselves into a villa in the South of France. Here they revelled in the relaxed atmosphere, star-gazing and exploring the musical odyssey that would later become Life On Other Planets.
Returning two months later with mini-discs full of ideas, they set to work giving structure to the music before hiring Tony Hoffer (best known for his work with Beck and Air), to produce the album.
The final result, with singles ‘Grace’, ‘Seen The Light’, ‘Never Done Nothing Like That Before’ and ‘Rush Hour Soul’, was a triumph. The album’s vitality, variety and humour still resonate over 20 years later.
Mojo magazine original review said: “This sounds ace! Their instinct is allowed full flower on this record. Lush, summery music-for-pleasure that sounds effortless. This record will make you smile.”
Allmusic.com original review: “Life On Other Planets is a smashing return to form, an album teeming with life and giddy with the sheer pleasure of making music. Supergrass haven't offered such pure, unabashed pop pleasure since their debut; there hasn't been an album that's this much fun in a long time!”
This new, deluxe expanded Supergrass Life On Other Planets reissue is released on 1LP black heavyweight vinyl, 2LP colour vinyl and 3CD digipack, on 25 August. The original album has been remastered from original sources and cut from new lacquers.
