Not their best album, not their worst. Still enjoyable, 7/10.

Their best album. Beautiful, melancholic. The perfect mix between electronic sounds and those middle east instruments.

The first Blur album without Graham Coxon(although he appears on a couple of tracks), think tank, is totally dominated by Damon Albarn. It almost feels like an Albarn solo album. Still, there is some good stuff here, most notably the lovely, out of time, and, ambulance. It's not all great, crazy beat, is an attempt at a Gorrilaz version of, song 2, it's a bit slight. All in all, a good record, but due to Coxon's departure there's not enough guitar. Probably Blur's least essential album.

A continuation of the experimental side of Blur. Interesting how they made this record around places like Morocco and Devon. Very weird sounding and interesting to listen. May want to hear the record a few more times.

With no guitarist and no ideas, one of the weakest Blur's album. Except for the malynconic single "Out of Time".
After this album they split up.

I really want to like this because I don't want to admit I prefer the poppier, fun Blur to the more experimental, risk-taking Blur. But this just falls super flat. It's got weird trip-hoppy beats going on that would be better explored in Gorillaz. And honestly it's just boring. It's not all that unique, it's just different than their other albums.

Great work. Sounds beautiful, arty and strong. An evolution from the ever experimental band. this time pay off big time. I prefer it than 13.

This is Blur's best work. Its very artistic and much more experimental than their previous work. 5 stars. All the folks who disagree probably prefer Oasis to Radiohead ;)

If you take away 13 and Parklife, I see this as Blur's best album. Very weird, experimental, melancholy, pretty, and sometimes silly fun. Blur's swan song is truly special and people overlook it since Coxon's not in it.

Also, Sweet Song is absolutely beautiful and should have more recognition in Blur's dense catalogue.
