BLUR – One Of Their Best Albums Ever ‘MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH’ Came Out 25 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

8 May 2018

Band: BLUR


Released: 10 May 1993 – 25 years ago

Drowned In Sound wrote: “There’s something wonderfully pure about Blur’s second album. Not only is Modern Life Is Rubbish a virtually perfect record, musically, but it comes without the baggage of the albums that surround it: no hit singles, no feuds with Oasis, no silly videos and no Britpop (though it would be retrospectively appropriated as such), its lyrics full of yearning for a vanished West London rather than the brassy Camden-isms of the next couple of albums. Reputedly the band – after their pissiness over ‘Popscene’ – were unfazed that neither their second album nor its singles sold particular well: they knew how good it was, they knew it
was only a matter of time before they hit the big time… and they were right.”

Score: 9/10 – Full review here

Turn Up The Volume says: Blur’s first great album and still one of their very best…
