Blur – Midlife: A Beginner’s Guide To Blur (EMI Music Canada)

Blur.jpgIn stores now to coincide with their reunion shows in the UK is this double-disc retrospective on the popular Brit-pop band Blur. Sure, Oasis might have sold more records but Blur certainly held their own in the hit and shit slinging department in relation to their much publicized “feud” with their Brit-Pop counterparts. Blur’s popularity really picked up steam on this side of the ocean with 1994’s Parklife record and would endure for the next number of years, producing hits such as Tender, Parklife, Girls and Boys, Song 2, The Universal and Beetlebum. 

Midlife features plenty of early Blur material in addition to their better known tracks, making this compilation a great way to reintroduce yourself to the group.
