Interesting, but somewhat confusing, 6th album from 1999
on 9 September 2016
Blur's 6th studio album sees the band moving even further away from the 'radio-friendly' Britpop era which proved so popular in the mid 1990s with the emphasis on eerie electronic music with some gospel thrown into the mix for good measure. Personally, I found this a difficult package to enjoy in its entirety and, although there are some very clever ideas here, I would happily have seen 1 or 2 of the longer tracks either shortened (or left off the running order altogether) in order to reduce the fearsomely long 67 minute run time down towards the 50 minute mark.
