The Best Blur Albums

Updated on January 22, 2013

Blur - My favorite Band

When I was 17 Blur were at their peak, they were the epitomy of Brit Pop and a new culture of the 90s

Park Life was a huge success and the media war between Blur and Oasis was at top gear.

While Oasis were popular, Blur's songs and albums varied so much in my mind they always outclassed Oasis.

Brit Pop bands sprang up everywhere in an attempt to capture their magic.

Here are their albums (in date order) I hope you enjoy them as much as I have :)

I've put in some of my favorite songs (there are far too many to post all the videos but I have put in a lot!)
