Following the release of the album, the Charlatans re-entered the front rank of British rock bands and were at the peak of their popularity, as well as critical acclaim.

When they broke on the scene with Some Friendly in 1990, the Charlatans UK were a ripe little joke band - every 60's groups whipped up in a blender and topped with a large helping of Farfisa organ.
Mellowing down from their dance-pop sensibilities into a 70's Velvet Underground-inspired band, The Charlatans seem to have changed their egotistical, over-the-top attitude into a relaxed unruffled band with some fully admirable tracks, although not all of which are exactly perfectly assembled.
As the CD comes to a close, we notice that The Charlatans will never be at such a high period as they were before, and realize we have to enjoy what we have.

 The Charlatans UK + Starsailor - PopMatters Concert Review
Full disclosure, revisited: As an American who had never seen the Charlatans before, from their albums I'd always thought of them as a band halfway between the Happy Mondays and Oasis -- capable of delivering, but a little to soft to really be though a bulldozer.
But why it worked, I'm guessing, is because of the crowd, which was packed with long time Charlatans' fans who obviously viewed the band as their boys, if not their brethren.
Their interaction was nothing short of a revival -- menfolk screaming and crying and getting naked (yes, literally), praising Burgess and reaching out to touch him; the Charlatans used the energy to fuel them without appearing to break a (figurative) sweat.
