M-People's win was not well-received
by critics

Winner: M People - Elegant Slumming
Sounds like: Dance music for supermarkets.
Key track: One Night In Heaven - a soulful pop single that crossed effortlessly into clubs.

Subsequent career:
Elegant Slumming was the Manchester-based band's commercial peak. However, they continued to have chart success throughout the 1990s, and their ballad Search For The Hero has soundtracked everything from car adverts to election campaigns.
Mercury barometer: Low - M People's album was seen as inferior to the competition even in 1994.

Losers: Blur - Parklife, Take That - Everything Changes, Pulp - His 'n' Hers
