After the promise of 1991's Leisure, Blur finally offer up a masterpiece of recording with their second album! Damon Albarn decided to write songs with a decidedly British slant, both lyrically and musically, and along the great musicianship of Graham Coxon, Alex James, and Dave Rowntree, produced this wonderful album. Landmark cuts include the jaw-dropping For Tomorrow, Chemical World, Starshaped, Oily Water, Sunday Sunday, and Blue Jeans. Although the quality drops a tad near the end of the album, overall this is a tight, wonderful album. American fans should buy the USA version, as it's the only place you can get Blur's amazing 1992 one-off single Popscene.
