BLUR – Their Debut Album ‘LEISURE’ Is 30 Today

26 August 2021

Band: BLUR
Active: Since 1988 – present (with some hiatuses)
8 studio albums so far

Anniversary album: LEISURE – debut LP
Released: 26 August 1991 – 30 years ago today

AllMusic wrote: ““She’s So High” and “There’s No Other Way” were
auspicious debut singles, alternately trancy and melodic, suggesting
how shoegazing and baggy beats could be incorporated into pop song
structures. Both songs suggested that Blur was capable of a striking
debut album, but Leisure wasn’t it.”
Score: 3/5.

Damon Albarn: “Thank God that [the album’s release] was a
time when you could make a record that wasn’t right and not be
discarded the next minute,

Turn Up The Volume: A false start for one of the greatest and
most successful Brit bands ever and its singer-songwriter who
became a 24/7, multifaceted hit machine.
