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.
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!!!
