Blur - 13 - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

It all begins with a music-box noise, not entirely unlike the beginning of Trumpton (you know, the kids' programme with the curiously named firemen). Welcome to yet another new identity for Blur. Gone are the caricatures of bed-and-breakfast owners and bankers, the cockernee knees-ups, football and pub laddisms. 13 is the starkest, most personal Blur album ever, going further in the direction the previous self-titled album hinted at. Dealing, for the most part, with frontman Damon Albarn's broken relationship with Elastica's Justine Frischmann, it's as if Blur have ripped their heart out and left the bloody mess for all to see. "Tender", with its repetitive cycle of a tune and gorgeous gospel choir, must surely remind you of someone special, while "No Distance Left to Run" is pure, unashamed heartbreak. Relief comes in the form of the sweet, Graham Coxon-penned "Coffee and TV" and "B.L.U.R.E.M.I", which recalls their punkier days. Oh, and "Bugman" appears to have utilised the previously untapped musical properties of a vacuum cleaner. "Country House" this is not. --Emma Johnston

The moment that i heard "tender" on the radio i could not wait to hear the album. When I did finally hear it, i was not dissapointed. Following on from the inspirational "Blur", "13" is simply a perfect album. The singles released from it showed the public the many different sides of Damon Alburns song writing abilities. Every song is different from the one before, and William Orbits input is imeadetely obvious. The best song on the album has to be "Trimm Trabb", because I have never before heard such a wonderfully atmosheric song, the whole song has been "composed" exceptionally well, with many different instruments being used. There is not one song that does not tantalise and engulf your ears and mind. "Bugman" is amazing aswell, with Coxon shining in this mind blowing, pumping song. A top quality album.

After the excellent and experimental album that was 1997's self-titled 'Blur', Britpop's finest young men released '13' two years later, which continued with frontman Damon's increasing interest in different, interesting, and experimental music. Blur were progressing in a big way, and as much as I adore the earlier stuff, my favourite album being 'Modern Life Is Rubbish' forever, it is very refreshing to hear more moodier and atmospheric music from these men, as opposed to the quirky, upbeat pop music that they had already proven they could excel at. In fact, the only song here that sounds anything like the old Blur, is the catchy single 'Coffee & TV', one of three massive hits that '13' spawned.

Damon's song writing was probably at a peak here, which isn't surprising considering the very difficult periods he was experiencing in his own personal life. As a result of this, he was able to write some of his most beautiful, and deep songs. The aforementioned 'Coffee and TV' is about alcoholism, describing his own battles with the demon drink. One of the real highlights, the completely heart-breaking 'No Distance Left to Run', was written after Damon's breakup with his long-term girlfriend Justine Frischmann, the lead singer of the band Elastica. Another is the much more experimental 'Caramel', describing the struggle he had to get over the breakup. Damon might find these songs difficult to sing, but to us fans, they are just incredible to listen to. It's rather difficult to believe that this is the same man who had penned the infectious 'Girls and Boys' just a half a decade before.

I remember I got this album back in 99, as a bright eyed and naive schoolboy of 14. "Tender" and "Coffee & TV" had just been released, and I loved (and still do) these, beautiful, emotional gems. So imagine my disappointment with 13. It was noisy, abstract and...weird. For a long while it lay dormant in my collection, as I got along with other transient piffle such as The Vines and The Cooper Temple Clause (remember? no)
Well, 11 years later and Blur are, thankfully, back with us and this album just might be their finest work. As brillinat as Blur have always been as a pop band, this is a million miles away from the likes of Parklife or Modern Life Is Rubbish. Even the eponymous album that preceeded this and offered the sensational likes of "Beetlebum" and "Song 2" is no match for the sheer daring experimentalism of this album. For a pop group, Blur always were an able bunch of musicians, but this album displays some truly outstanding work from the band as a unit and as individuals, paritucularly from the always innovative Graham Coxon. In a recent interview, Coxon stated that this was the point where he really felt he'd refined his skills as a guitarist, and the results here are at times breathtaking, creating the kind of dynamic noise that might make the likes of Mogwai or the Pumpkins sit up and take notice. But perhaps most impressive is Damon Albarn's at times woeful, at times enraged songcraft. He displays an emotional depth that was only ever hinted at in their earlier work, and there are moments where his vocals take on an angelic quality that is distinctive and powerful. "Trimm Trabb" is so visceral, so unsettlingly reflective ("all those losers on the piss again...

After a fantastic 5th album blur found the sound that thay have been looking for for ten years. Opening the album with Tender just works so well i cant think of a better song to start a better album (and if you get the chance listion to the B side all we want it shows alex james at his best). The second song could not be more differnt their hardist song to date Bugman shows how they can play nearly evey tipe of music there is. Then Graham steps up to the lead vocals to do one of the best songs of the album Coffee and TV is proply the only song on 13 that goes back to their eariy days. 1992 is a song i would never of thought to be a blur song and swamp songs sounds like their is still a lot of laughts in Damon's life after the brack up with Justin. But the two songs i like the most are Trimm Trabb and mellow song because i think that this are two songs that show that they are not running out of ideas and will be around for a long, long time.
