I couldn't paste the story but here's the link, it was Graham referring to Mike smith the publisher. Graham was drunk and went back to the studio to add his guitar parts to the song while the rest of the band went to a Pulp show. When they returned they found an "off his trolley" Graham banging on a chair leg and as Mike came in he shouted to him...apparently

Fun story. I didn't actually know that the reason it said The Plough, Bloomsbury in the credits is because Dave was in the pub until recently enough either!

wanted to bump this because i've been relistening to blur's discography after a sort of break (i listen to their songs weekly but never full albums, which I feel bad for lol) and rediscovered a love for the self titled and modern life is rubbish. and also wanted to read others opinions after 2 years of magic whip being out

1. blur
2. mlir/13
3. the magic whip
4. parklife
5. the great escape
6. think tank
7. leisure

It's always a struggle between the self-titled and Parklife for me. I was gonna say the self-titled now, but then I realized two years ago I had voted for Parklife.

For me it's always gonna be Parklife because that's the album that got me into Blur in the first place. After that it's 13

Same for me, the self-titled has so many great tracks, but I can't get enough of how diverse and flavorful Parklife is. I love every song on both albums, but I have to hand it to Parklife, because of the variety, and it has To The End on it (my favorite Blur song).
Just your average country sad ballad man!

For me it's always been a constant struggle between "13" and "Blur"..... However, "TMW" gradually is emerging as my all-time favorite and might eclipse the others over time. The next 5 years worth of listens would dictate that.

It's still always between 13 and MLIR for me. TMW is vying with TT and Leisure in the bottom half of the table.

As time passes I find it more and more difficult to choose the top slot for my favourite Blur album, but it would be between Parklife, MDLIR, 13 & TMW. The problem is that they all bring something completely different to the table from each other and they are all in my opinion complete albums in their own right. The great songs exist on the other albums, but not as consistent. You have say 'self titled' with great songs like Beetlebum, Song 2, Strange News & Look Inside America, but I tend to skip a big chunk of the rest of the album, not so with the likes of 13 for example, and more recently with TMW, I can happily listen to it in its entirety.

I've re-done the poll to include The Magic Whip.
