My conciousness of blur is a fairly recent development, having started sometime in the winter of 2005. Since then, I've done as I do with new loves, and hastily gathered together all of their studio albums. My hunger for blur has proven insatiable, however, and so now I'm turning my attention to b-sides collections and this, blur's only live album (That I know of). It's an excellent one, with blur at the top of their pop game. It starts like every Budokan album, with a fleet of screaming Japanese school girls, and then the music starts. The set list is as close to a greatest-hits as you're going to find, so you won't be dissapointed with the choices. Blur live is a tough proposition, only because their records are so ornately detailed and meticulously crafted that the live venue will inevitably cause some of the ear-catching sheen to vanish. Also, at the time, Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon were not the most consistent of live singers, but the music is still wonderful. I don't reccomend it as a introduction to blur, but if you're already familiar, it's a fantastic addition to the collection.
