  Blur- Midlife A Beginners Guide to Blur

| | See all davidcolutd's reviews (1)

I really liked Blur when they first came out and bought this album as I had lost the original. This is fantastic and British music at its very best.
I recommend this album to anyone as every track is superb.

  A treat for all Blur fans out there & for everyone else too!

This collection of blur songs is fantastic. A good selection of tunes that have appeared on all seven of their studio albums. You will not be disappointed. I've been a blur fan for fifteen years now (eek!) and approve highly of this release. My personal favourites being, 'Beetlebum', 'Girls & Boys', 'Tender' & 'Battery in your leg'. This collection is solid proof of how much an important band blur really were - & of course, still are. Damon Albarn, Alex James, Graham Coxon & Dave Rowntree - we salute you.

  Does what it says on the box

Really looking forward to seeing blur live this summer and this collection is the perfect way to get excited about it. This is a great album and really showcases what Blur was and hopefully still is all about and is a much better indication of Blur's sheer quality than their previous best of which was basically just a greatest hits.This on the other is truly a best of and has some real highlights However my only dissapointment is that end of the century didnt make it on as this is one of my favourite blur songs. But that is just a personal thing. Still definitely one to buy for new fans especially and a nice overview of a great career which will hopefully continue with some new material after the summer.

  Finally A Real Best Of...

| | See all Buffdaddy75's reviews (1)

The Blur boys are back (all 4 of 'em!) and they are playing live shows again for the first time since 2000 with guitarist Graham Coxon. Midlife is nothing new for seasoned Blur fans like myself but for new fans and completists this is the essential Blur collection and the album that 2000's Best Of... should've been. They've spliced all the familliar hits (sans the Blur despised Country House) with popular live favorites and underrated album tracks like Sing, This Is A Low and Battery In Your Leg to maybe give us all some idea what those summer setlists are gonna be like. If your trying Blur out for the very first time this is the perfect album to see what the fuss was all about the first time round. Excellent!!!
