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.

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.
