One of the most underrated albums of the 90s.

Blur the album demonstrates how Blur the band were one of the more consistent and innovative groups of the 90s.

My favorite album of theirs, Blur decided to experiment some with this one, abandoning their britpop roots, and went for a more lo-fi sound, giving hints as to what Gorillaz would become, especially with ''On Your Own.''

Better than their 2 previous efforts in my opinion, but there are still some weak songs that ruin a bit the album for me. 7.7/10.

At the beginning, I thought I was going to really like this album. And it's likable enough, but I grew tired of the sound by the end.

I find tracks 3 & 9 genuinely quite hard to listen to....which is unusual for me and Blur, but then there's the cracking M.O.R. Love the quite trippy sounding On Your Own, too, but then Theme From Retro is a downer, and You're So Great really isn't. I was never a massive fan of the singles from this album, and that follows through with the album. Some of their best album tracks, and some of their worst. Bit too up and down and 'different' for me.
