That said, I do love Parklife more on average (although it really depends on whichever one I've listened to more recently). My thoughts are swung by the stretch from 'London Loves' to 'Jubilee', including my completely irrational love of 'Trouble in the Message Centre'.

*If you didn't know what song it was before you clicked it, I'm very disappointed in you.

I'm exploring the special editions that were in the Blur 21 box set (they're on Spotify, for the poors among us). There's actually a lot of good material in the vaults, as well as all the stuff that's on the albums.

Death of a Party - completely underrated.

100% agree. Every Blur album has a whole bunch of outstanding non-single tracks.

Also, The Magic Whip was a really enjoyable album which I find myself consistently returning to. Go Out, I Thought I Was a Spaceman, Lonesome Street and Mirrorball are fantastic.

It helps that they'd all been keeping themselves fresh with other music. But yeah, it'd be one of the few post-reunion albums that have a solid part in a band's canon.

“Death of a Party” is amazing.

I’m not big on the early, super-Brit-poppy Blur, but oddly enough when they went “grunge” (lulz) and used feedback on “Song 2” to shoehorn in a warped and weirdass album like their self-titled one with tracks like “Country Sad Ballad Man” and “Essex Dogs,” I started to appreciate them.

Then “13” came out, and I’m pretty sure that album is as adventurous as anything Radiohead ever made. Goddamn glorious, that record. Warped, experimental fucking masterpiece.

It's insane how much ground they covered in their career. Radiohead get credit for their transition from regular alt-rock to electro-art weirdness, but Blur had that plus a huge pop stage.
