Don't know about 13 or Think Tank, but personally I love the S/T.

I completely disagree. Blur's worst is a result of them trying a little too hard to be different...which I can completely respect. Oasis's worst is...well...worse because it is a complete ripoff of other bands.

I've discussed Think Tank a few times, but never really got a straight answer from people...what is it that you guys don't like? Is it just that Graham's not there? Is it because it is completely different from their other work? Is it just boring to you?

Personally, I love it because it's different. I also feel like it's a natural progression from Damon focusing on Blur to focusing on Gorillaz.

That last bit is exactly why I dislike it.
It's a Damon Albarn solo album under the Blur name. The guy was far more interested in working with outside people than his own band. I've no problem with him wanting to do that just don't call it a Blur album. From what I understand Alex James & Dave Rowentree had very little to do with that album too.
And yet another rock band wants to experiment with electronica .... YAWN.
And the songs were pretty rubbish too.

That's why I hate it

Haha, well that's pretty clear. I can respect that. I can agree with you to a certain point...but I do like the songs on that album. Except maybe Crazy Beat. Wtf was that.

So, Urban and Duga, do you guys think Blur's whole discography is worth buying? Except for Think Tank? I'm asking because it would be pretty cheap to get it so if it's worth it...(I'd love to have a new discography to explore)

Also, which Oasis album are you thinking of duga, becuase I think Heathen Chemistry and Dig Out Your Soul were both awful.

(I could always get the Weezer discog. for cheap, but I don't know how much I'd enjoy that, the same goes for the Rage against the Machine discog.)

I'd go with Parklife, it's generally considered the classic/most mainstream of their works and a good starting place. MLIR and The Great Escape are both definitely worth checking out too though.a

To SGRocks, I actually think all their albums are worth getting.

Blur has a worthy discography of checking out...and yes, including Think Tank. You may love it or hate it (as you can see from the discussion here), but either way it is a stepping stone in their evolution. Like Urban and I talked about, it seems like the link between Blur and Gorillaz.

And if you don't have the Gorillaz discography, you need that as well.

I like Think Tank, personally. 13 is superior though.

Do you think I'll like the majority of it if I enjoy Oasis first 3 albums?

What do you think of Blur's discography as a whole Urban? Worth buying?

Also, Urban, random question here. Do you think I should get this double cd collection of The Super Furry Animals first two albums...

http://www.amazon.com/Fuzzy-Logic-Ra...ecc_rvi_cart_3

Or should I buy them seperately? It would be cheaper to get them together, but I don't know if it contains both liner notes or not.

EDIT: Also, do you guys think I will enjoy going through Blur's discography like I enjoy going through The Doors or Sabbath's and just being able to see and enjoy the progression throughout the albums?
