Running from their foundations in Madchester ravadelia to the current media infatuation with Brit Pop, The Charlatans have produced dreamy, lilting songs that scale European rock traditions. Producing a dense wash of creamy psychedelic guitars accented by warm organ vibrations and beautiful vocal harmonies, their sound is at once nostalgic for the peak of the British Invasion and sits atop the summit of Madchester's psychotropic excesses. Their greatest successes are in their most melancholic songs as great swells of instrumentation sweep emotive vocals upward into a hopeful light. Burgess was once accused by stone roses front man Ian Brown in NME of deliberately copying his style! you decide, if Burgess didn't Liam Gallagher certainly did!! ;)
