Parklife is a great album. At the time of this review, the album is nearly 20 years old, yet to me, it sounds like music that could have been released today.

Divertido, fantastico, revolucionario, a casi 20 años de este album, el britpop salto a la fama con este, junto a Definitely Maybe de Oasis, han hecho historia en el mundo del rock y en el mundo de los 90 mas que nada. Esas melodías pop que presenta me cautivan junto con Different Class de Pulp. Blur es una gran banda, y este es su mejor disco.

That time you got hopped up on pills and danced through the streets of London in your knickers.

Some great tracks on here but can't listen to it now. Songs like ' parklife' and 'girls and boys' make me wince a tad. Shame really. This is a low is one of albarns best though. Even at the time this came out I was more of a fan of modern life...hit and miss but overall don't think it has dated that well. Mind you heard in years so should give it a listen.

Classic britpop. Raw, cheeky and incredibly observational. It's obvious on this record how familiar the group is with their home city, going in depth to explain it's characters (some less-than-fortunate and others just downright slackers) and the cultural impact that London can have on many people- the song "London Loves" explains this well. Some real fast, hard, stomping rock tunes here mixed in with quiet melodies and a whole bunch of British charm. Classic.

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.
