If you have ever heard of Blur, then perhaps you have heard the ancient battle of the 90s “The Battle of Britpop” between Blur and Oasis. Many suns ago two English bands hit the music scene; Oasis represented the North and Blur the South. Eventually, of Blur’s lead singer Damon Albarn and Oasis’ Liam Gallagher became friends. Modern Life Is Rubbish is the second studio album from Blur. Albarn helped guide the band away from their previous album, Leisure’s baggy sound, which was inspired by Madchester genre.
I was not an instant fan of the band Blur. It took me some time to appreciate them. I think we both had to grow for me to appreciate them. The definitely grew over the years. I liked Oasis at first, but as the 90s wore on I came to like Blur better and stopped listening to Oasis. I have not heard any of their later albums.
Overall, the album is good-ish or greatly okay. I think their later music was excellent. This album never quite grabbed my soul. I think only the first song and the last one sort of drew me in. 6.9/10.
