Product Description

To celebrate the 21st anniversary of their debut release, Blur’s eponymous fifth album has now been remastered from the original tapes by Frank Arkwright (The Smiths, Arcade Fire, New Order, Joy Division), with the remastering overseen by legendary original producer, Stephen Street. The 1997 original was one of the band's most successful albums, including two monster hits in the form of "Beetlebum" and "Song 2". This special edition is remastered, repackaged and includes a bonus disc with some previously unreleased material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds fantastic. The extras follow suit. 17 Jan 2014
By Crank - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This remaster does not deviate much from the dynamic range of the original. Around DR8 or so but it actually sound great! Not at all too loud. I think they push the medium for rock but then again I think DR8 is the line you really don't need to cross. And they didn't. The first few Blur albums do sound a bit different but I think it's fine again with the added detail and bottom end.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic - of Course 1 Nov 2012
By Morten Vindberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Blur were after the group's major commercial successes with "Parklife" and "The Great Escape" tired of all the hype and the predicate pop band. Especially guitarist Graham Coxon wanted and needed to explore the possibilities his guitar playing and had a general urge to broaden the scope of Blur's music.

The album "Blur" is also markedly different from its predecessors. Dave Albarn great sense of the melodic, however, shines through on many songs significantly despite the different and at times odd approaches.

Maybe a little unexpected for the group itself, the album was a huge commercial success and indeed a breakthrough for the group in the U.S.. No less than four top twenty singles are featuring on the album, with the fantastic "Beetlebum" and "Song 2" as classics. "M.O.R" is as the title suggests middle of the road rock, while "On Your Own" must be classified as a very unusual choice of a single - nevertheless it is a highlight with its Bowie/Hunter approach.

Among the actual album tracks "Death of a Party" and "Look Inside America" are also standouts. Some of the other tracks come out for me somewhat weaker in the picture - and you may get to feel that some parts of experimenting, are just for experiment's sake. And oh, I was almost forgetting another favorite "Country Sad Ballad Man" - acoustic, weird and melodic.

CD 2 contains the many b-sides of the four singles, excerpts from a fine unplugged concert in Germany and three tracks from a live performance in Belgium. Most B-sides belong to the loose experimental end. Very good, however, is "All Your Life", which in my opinion, should have been included on the original album.

Despite the slightly uneven general inpression, I will not hesitate to call the album a classic.

This album is the tits! Great pressing on solid vinyl. I would recommend it to anyone! Sounds fantastic which is a relief in the era of novelty vinyl pressings for the kids. Buy it and rock out to it while you watch a Chelsea match. Giddy up from America!
