    Anyone else get reminded of the Outrageous Fortune theme song when they hear that Lupe Fisaco song?

    Hmmm.

    Tricky. MLiR is my fav. Leisure was a solid indie dance dominated debut (although Sing hinted at hidden depths) but their sophomore effort really tapped into that strain of English pop that runs back through The Smiths to Madness, The Specials, The Jam, Squeeze, The Who, The Small Faces and The Kinks. Albarn was deliberately positioning himself with the greats and he pulled it off too.

    The eponymous fifth album was a wilfull move away from the musical shores of Blighty and across to the colleges of the states but the lyrical concerns still drift back.

    1. Modern Life is Rubbish
    2. Blur
    3. Parklife
    4. Think Tank
    5. 13
    6. Leisure
    7. The Great Escape

    Sledger will put 13 top, don't think he's aware they've released any other albums

    I've always found it interesting how blur get shunned by large chunks of this forum given the weighting given to making innovative music round these parts.

    I think it's the Parklife/Country House factor.

    I like(d) the former, but could see it grating after a while if that's all you know of the band. It is the aural equivalent of drinking a pint of jellied eels whilst being sodomised by a pearly king.

    Country House is a pig by any standards tho. Amuses me that in the great Blur/Oasis race for #1 both groups were represented by absolutely pish songs.

    Was thinking the same. I actually don't mind either but in a sort of singalong way.

    The next singles each released? The Universal and Wonderwall. Now THAT would have been worthy.

    The only reason blur won was because they did that CD1/CD2 thing bands used to do with singles in the 90s. Mind you, CD2 was a live EP and a very good one too.

    Blur
    13
    MLIR
    Parklife
    Leisure
    Think Tank
    The Great Escape

    TGE is a rank album IMO, don't like it at all. Everything else, I love. Leisure is very weak in parts but absolutely love the 'core' of it - 'Sing-There's No Other Way-Fool-Come Together'.

    The Great Escape is my least fav album of theirs, but it is quite fun to hear some of the blatant lifts and knowing nods to other songs and artists.

    It allows the listener to pat themselves on the back and think "Yeah, I own that record too". Whatever else one says about him, Damon does have excellent taste.

    Yeah, 13 is definitely my favourite of theirs, find it the most interesting to listen to. Following that though, the order could be more or less anything, but would have it as something like this:

    13
    Think Tank
    Modern Life is Rubbish (though Chinese Bombs is absolutely horrid)
    Blur
    Park Life
    The Great Escape
    Leisure

    Agree strongly with the sentiments of Brumby with regards to Country House/Parklife though, both dreadful. Charmless Man, however, is excellent I always thought.

    Chinese Bombs is off of Blur, isn't it?

    Fully expect MLiR to be promoted accordingly.

    Was listening to a b-side from Beetlebum this morning that was pure Children of the Revolution. Quite a joy.

    Oops, my apologies, it is indeed. Will attempt to save face by claiming it was a typo/failure of attention on my part rather than a lack of awareness.
