Future This (4AD) 

Dump those Blur and Oasis records in the rubbish: the future of Britpop has arrived with the release of Future This, the second LP from the Big Pink, an electro-rock duo from the U.K. incorporating new wave synthesizers, hip-hop beats and guitar rock, the Big Pink sound like Tears for Fears on steroids. Highly-danceable, larger-than- life songs like "Stay Gold" and "Hit the Ground (Superman)" can blow the roof off a sweaty house party or an arena show at Wembley Stadium.
