Battle is awesomeness in musical form.

However:
Get Out of Cities
Swallows in the Heatwave

I'm sorry, what's the deal with those songs? Distinctly average tunes.
Get out of cities I get, but Swallows in the Heatwave... I never understood its supposed charm :roll:

Parklife as an album. Way overrated.

Quite right. Most of 13 is bloody awful.
Tender is great, Coffee is almost as good, but the rest is mostly rubbish.
The original NME review, below, was spot on.

Agree with that. I remember hearing about it, reading about it, before it was released...and it was such a let down. I've never liked it. Boring and predictable!

NME suck ass, that review is shite. 13 is excellent. You're in the minority!

I didn't know everybody liked Topman so much, it's always been shit to me. I can't believe there is actual disdain for 13!
Anyway, if we're talking about overrated on this forum, I'd go for Death of a party and -hold on- This Is A Low. Love both songs but I can't say I rate them as highly as some of you guys.

for me, most of The Great Escape is overrated, pretty average record for me and my other choices are:
some Leisure tracks like She's So High, Repetition and Wear Me Down
Tracy Jacks
Jubilee
I'm Just a Killer for Your Love
