Fast, fun, and surprisingly eclectic. The first two tracks are relatively weak, but from track 3 onward this is a great album.
Very nice Britpop album but not very innovative. Just what Blur have done well, and repeated throughout. Second favourite Blur album, regardless. Best track: 'To The End'
cant remember the last time i liked an album this much on the first listen. Lots of really creative song writing, good chord progressions, experimental rhythms, good backing vocals, everything to like.
I'm actually a fan of Blur after they get in Alternative, But this is nice works and I love lyrics.
Best Track:London Loves
Fantastic album, better than I was expecting it to be.
Blur at the height of their game. At this point, they were far better than Oasis.
It was an exciting time to be young: watching music history in the making.
A lot of great music being dished out at the same time.
And Blur created some of the best with this album, becoming a great stop at the BIRT continuum that started with the Kinks and went on to include great acts such as the Jam, the Madness and so on...
This is a low, funnily enough is the real high of the album
So this album's strong spot but at the same time its weakness, is its diversity. It covers a whole range of British classic sounds from Barrett, the Kinks or the Stones. The lack of any coherence in the album's structure is rather unfortunate though.
Heralded by Damon as 'Blur's Ark",it is equal parts Gary Numan and Ray Davies. Eccentric and typically idiosyncratic it is both a call to arms and a patriotic but critical look at mid 90s Britain.
I don't like the idea of going to Ibiza. Well... I don't like the idea of going to any of those islands for that matter. Attract people that are too rowdy and into the booze. Like lots of it. It is where this album begins though with 'Girls & Boys' and throughout reminds you it is made by them people for them people. Basically the shoppers and thrifters of the council estate. The car boot guys and girls who aren't afraid to be seen down the bookies. How else can the cheeky observations of the title track and 'Bank Holiday' be interpreted? To cement this working class attitude further, the singer sneers through his own Johnny Rotten impression on 'Tracy Jacks'. The music however is more James or The La's than Chuck Berry. So they are not the spiritual successors of that group. No way indeed! In fact they couldn't be further from it at some points. They have a mellow side you see. A quiet soul ponders across 'This Is A Low' the music a fitting tribute to starry night. 'To The End' is another such ballad while 'Clover Over Dover' reminisces back to The Kinks 'Victoria'. This is a group who wants you to know there roots, ones which scream "WE ARE BLOODY BRITISH!" So that is what you'll get. Beans and mash. A good collection of songs with one or two greats. Is 'Magic America' them mocking those who take a more American influence? To be honest chaps, I'll take great quality over silver spoons anyday.
