One of the great British albums of all time. Parklife, is a thoroughly entertaining and original record, influenced strongly by The Kinks, Small faces and The who, with hints of Madness and Bowie, it's a brilliant picture postcard of the United kingdom in the nineties. Touching on British pastimes such as the beach, holidays and englishness, it's full of great observations in, girls and boys, end of the century, and off course the unforgettable title track. Elsewhere, strong cuts include, Tracy jacks, jubilee, and, this is a low. Parklife, is a glorious hoot of an album. Superb.

I think I've decided I dislike Britpop... I like Blur with some of their other work, but this is just kind of bland to me... it's me, not you. I just can't do Stone Roses, Oasis (Good lord do I loathe that band), and this album. Glad Blur has other awesome work I do really like though.

Another one of those bands/albums that I just don't get. It's mediocre noise rock to me.

A bit of hit n miss. Some brilliant tracks and some rubbish ones like Bank Holiday. 16 tracks. Should have been edited to cut the rubbish. Saying that the album as a story the songs all have their place. Even the crap ones.

It's a classic Britpop record. It was their best, along with 13, until The Magic Whip.
Best tracks: Girls and Boys, Parklife, End of a Century
Worst track: Lot 105

The first LP is what everybody knows... timeless songs like Girls & Boys, Tracy Jacks, Parklife, etc.
The second LP begins with the out of this world To The End... what an amazing song. But the rest of it is just medium. And this is where this album loses.
