Solid

Thanks to TheBravesDH for the recommendation!

I cannot stress enough how fun these albums actually are, like, again, there's never a dull moment, everywhere you look on the tracklist, there are highlights, and even with the weaker songs they still sound sweet. I actually don't think this is better than Parklife, I don't know how many people will agree with me on that one, but the first 10 tracks murder.

Best: Charmless Man

Weakest: Dan Abnormal

The Greatest Escape isn't just a random title, it's a statement from the band to escape the mundane, boring and smoggy lives of everyday life and do something more fun, more fresh, more exciting. And in making this statement, Blur deliver one of their more fresh albums with a potent and timeless message.

Favorite Jams: The Universal, Globe Alone, Country House

Lest Favorites: Stereotyoes
