stereogum:

It was a profoundly strange experience to type out the headline “Parklife Turns 20.” More so than the other anniversaries I’ve written for Stereogum, the fact that landmark Pulp, Blur, and Oasis albums are arriving at their twentieth anniversaries is something that just doesn’t quite compute. Last month, I wrote about Soundgarden’s Superunknown upon its own twentieth birthday, and remarked upon how this year has an odd split between American records that represent the peak and (and thus, the beginning of the end) of grunge and that first break of Alt Nation, and the records that represent the beginning of something else entirely over in Britain. Parklife still feels vital in a way that those American records do not. Superunknown and VS. and In Utero sound exactly like twenty years ago is supposed to sound. Intellectually, obviously it’s easy to conceive that Britpop was indeed very much a thing of the ’90s itself, and critically it’s easy to understand the sounds that make it up are just as stereotypically ’90s as fuzzy drop-D guitar riffs; you just have to adjust your context. Maybe this stuff has just held up remarkably well. Whatever the reason, Parklife does not sound twenty years old…
