(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: The great escape
Year released: 1995
Year reissued: 2012
Details: 4 of 7 in Blur 21, anniversary box set, black vinyl, 180 gram, 2 x LP, Gatefold sleeve
The skinny: Released at the height of Britpop madness, Blur’s fourth album finds the boys and their music as big and bloated and commercial, almost caricatures of themselves. Still, some really, really great stuff here, the song below included.
Standout track: “The universal”
