REVIEWS

******
Ein persönlicher Milestone!!
*****
wirklich gutes Album, höre ich noch immer gerne
******
Die Platte kommt aus einem Guss daher. Es sind keine Lückenfüller zu finden. Jeder Song hat etwas an sich und nebst Countryhouse sind weitere Klassiker wie Charmless Man , Stereotypes vorhanden. Die Scheibe kann ich immer hören, ich persönlich find's das Beste von Blur und eine der Besten der 90er Jahre!
******
Ganz starkes Album
***
etwa die hälfte der songs ist genial die andere hälfte nervt dafür unendlich.
****
ihr 4tes Album mit 4 Hits und zumindest einem totalausfall..
*****
Deutlich besser als Parklife

5+

Album-Covers sagen nicht immer unbedingt die ganze
Wahrheit:

Seichter "mainstream-Pop" ist jetzt nicht unbedingt, was
einem erwartet auf diesem Album, hat auch einiges ziemlich
schräges mit drauf, mal etwas besser gelungen, mal
etwas weniger gut....

Anspieltipps:

Country House, Charmless Man, The Universal (!!),
Stereotypes.....


4 ++
*****
Sehr tolle Platte mit stilistisch sehr abwechslungsreichen Songs. Viel, viiieeeel besser als ihr Ruf. Songs wie "Charmless Man", "Country House", "The Universal" und "Best Days" gehören sogar mit zum besten was sie überhaupt gemacht haben.

Bueno

Ich steh bisher nicht so auf Blur. Die Singles sind gut bis klasse, der Rest, ganz ok.

Starkes Album!
***
I never really grew into Blur, I despised their music when I was younger and I never grew to enjoy much of it as an adult, even as my tastes began to embrace many different types of music. I find a lot of their stuff annoying or gimmicky. This album wasn't so bad to listen to but much it does seem really long and many of the songs towards the end were very frustrating, bad listens for me. I think I would appreciate Blur more if the vocalist was better. I rated this an even 50%.
