Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (6/30/94, p.73) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...With one of the year's best albums, they realize their cheeky ambition: to reassert all the style and wit, boy bonding and stardom aspiration that originally made British rock so dazzling...this is explosive pop..."

Spin (8/94, p.87) - Highly Recommended - "...Blur cultivates that new wave look and sound, evoking the halcyon days of yore when London produced weekly pop sensations the way today's American college towns produce Superchunk clones..."

Q (10/01, p.85) - Ranked #15 in Q's "Best 50 Albums of Q's Lifetime"

Q (12/99, p.82) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."

Q (6/00, p.76) - Ranked #22 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...Tempered by a wistful elegiac quality that brilliantly captured England's mixture of madness and mundanity. 'This Is a Low' is one of the most poignant songs ever onthe subject of The British isles."

Alternative Press (7/95, pp.94-95) - Rated #71 in AP's list of the `Top 99 Of '85-'95.'

Alternative Press (10/94, p.74) - "...taking MODERN LIFE's `For Tomorrow' to its logical retro conclusion, but making it all seem so shiny, spanking, sparkly new, that the next time there's a '60's revival, they'll have to ask Blur if it's ok with them first..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.56) - Ranked #72 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "Years ago, when albums were this magical they had titles like SOMETHING ELSE BY THE KINKS."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/95, p.51) - Included in Mojo's "25 Best Albums of 1994" - "...PARKLIFE shares its ragamuffin rambunctiousness with past masters like The Small Faces and The Kinks but has a contemporary sense of the surreal..."

NME (Magazine) (12/24/94, p.22) - Ranked #2 in NME's list of the `Top 50 Albums Of 1994.'
