I think to characterise Blur by their heyday would be gigantic steps back... Blur were most popular when they were 'Parklife', but they've created much braver music since then. It's pretty ignorant to think of them as a 'Britpop cash in' as Bernard Butler did.

I hardly think Bernard Butler is in any postition to lecture anybody about it. Yes he formed The Tears with Brett Anderson rather that them calling it Suede , but it just sounded like a bad Suede album anyway.

Blur never spilt up & always said they'd get back together sometime , so I don't see it as a reunion. I only hope that the rest of the band reign in Albarns ego so it doesn't sound like some sub par Gorillaz crap , which was why Coxon left in the first place.

what i meant really was that they sowed the seeds of rebellion against American dross (their words) and wrote some really cool songs about hating supermarkets and portabello road. That was their peak for me, although I like plenty of the later stuff musically, I think it got more eclectic simply because the group splintered, like Urban says I don't want another album of Albarn songs with some Coxon songs thrown in and a couple of proper collabs, I want an old school Blur album. And don't let Alex James write a cute ditty about... writing for a liberal paper and wearing a jumper

I love Gorillaz but I agree, they're different bands for a reason.

Crazy Beat was just awful.

Think Tank overrall was pretty bad. After Graham left he seemed to take much of the soul with him.
