Just ahead of the Great Escape - love Parklife and Phil Daniels cameo on it. They were such a happy and silly band with excellent pop tunes. Part of the Brit Pop explosion. Many top tracks here - I love 7 of the 16 on the album - so there is a bit of filler and might have benefited from a shorter and tighter album.

I think this album is really irregular, but I must say the good songs in here are awesome. 7/10.

Not Blur's best, but a good Britpop/alt-rock album.

Un pop intelligente nonostante la faccia un po' stupidina, ricercato senza essere per nulla presuntuoso come invece accadrà sempre di più negli episodi successivi.

Has its moments, I guess. Not as captivating as I'd hoped.

Hard to rate as I love parts of this album but find other parts surprisingly dull and a bit aimless. The first four tracks and To the end are easily amongst Britpop's best moments but much of the rest can't match this quality. For me, this album really defines Britpop: it excites for a moment then leaves you feeling a bit empty. That said, the good tracks on this album are incredibly memorable, fun, perceptive and even poignant.

Has few really good songs, but its not Blur's best. In fact its one of their worst.

Very interesting, I can see why people like it, but I think it's too poppy/ cheesy and times. Overrated for sure.

Highlights:
Girls and Boys
Debt Collector
Trouble in the Message Centre
This is a Low
Lot 105

Quirky, very British, almost Beatle like feel to it. Track after track of quality and Blur's best album full stop.
