This album was nearly as mind bending for me as Kid A the first time I heard it. I had never heard anything like it before. The perfect mix of excellent straightforward songs and brash experiments still resonates with me in a big way.

And again, there are some great songs in here, but I get bored with the bad ones. Tough discography... 6/10.

The best album by Blur contains a more experimental sound (c/o W.Orbit) a good listen from start to finish. Lyrically it is much darker and musically experimental than anything they had done before.

I used to think Blur was relatively straightforward britpop until I heard this album. Jesus was this mind blowing.

A bizarre record. And I love it for that. Shoutouts to William Orbit to make it weird as fuck. And I love it because of it. Hell I might give this a 100 with future listens just to get the lyrics. But instrumentally this reminds me of records that came in the future.

Its so sad that Blur went under the radar largely outside Europe, cuz this album deserves so much more recognition and acclaim. So beautifully constructed. Its such an exhillerating experience listening to it start to finish, Its ineffable.
Also.... Tender!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
