This review is from: Modern Life Is Rubbish (Audio CD)
This is the album that laid the ground for the britpop boom that allowed bands such as Pulp, Oasis (and of course, Blur) to be at the top of the charts during the mid 90's. This album shows that Blur have an ability to mix art-rock with mod-rock - creating a nostagic, almost romantic picture of London, and life in the early part of the 90's. More importantly, this is the blueprint for an era (from 'new lad' to 'cool britania') - and although rarely mentioned in 'the best of all time' charts, it's significance can not be denied.
