(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)
Album Title: Parklife
Year released: 1994
Year reissued: 2012
Details: 3 of 7 in Blur 21, anniversary box set, black vinyl, 180 gram, 2 x LP, Gatefold sleeve
The skinny: A thematic and sonic continuation, Blur’s third record almost sounds like its material was recorded during the same sessions as ‘Modern life’. In my opinion, this Blur at their best, Britpop in full bloom, and likely my favourite of their albums, from beginning to end.
Standout track: “This is a low”
