Blur - Leisure 1991
I decided to buy this CD because it was the only blur album my boyfriend didn't own, so I bought for him for valentine's day. He was very happy to finally have his collection completed and insisted on playing the whole album on repeat.
Blur in the right place No classics .... but good
One thing i would like to make clear from the outset. This album is from the tail end of the baggy era. Four years before the Britpop explosion some reviewers have lumped it in. Containing three great baggy anthems and some great shoe-gazed tinged pop Blur seemed to be in the right place at the right time with this album. The album also shows glimpses of their darker songwriting style that would return with more prominence several albums down the line. This is a stronger album than many people credit it for. No classic...but good.
Blur - Leisure
Only decent tracks are She's So High, There's No Other Way and Bang (which were the singles, and shows where all their efforts went into). The other tracks serve as filler album material. Sounds like indie dance rather than Britpop though.
Blur album - Leisure
I had a clear out of my loft & found a load of tapes & thought it would be nice to listen to them again & have them in my collection since I no longer have a tape player. Brought back memories of school 10 years ago!
The first album
This has to be the best Blur album ever! Long before everyone jumped on the bandwagon called Parklife. Did you know that on "She's so high" Alex James didn't play bass? Enjoy!
