1990-2000 Singles Compilation On Double LP!

Blur: The Best Of is a greatest hits compilation album by English Britpop band Blur, first released in late 2000. The album includes 17 of Blur's 23 singles from 1990 to 2000, plus the album track "This Is A Low" from the band's third studio album Parklife (1994).

Blur were formed in 1989 by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree and signed with Food/EMI the same year. Announcing their arrival with debut album Leisure in 1991, Blur continued to revolutionise the sound of English popular music with second release Modern Life Is Rubbish(1993). Five successive UK #1 albums followed - with Parklife (1994) and The Great Escape (1995) helping to propel the band to mass popularity in the UK and beyond. The eponymous Blur was released in 1997 and seventh album Think Tank (2003) was Blur's first as a three-piece after the temporary departure of founding guitarist Graham Coxon. One of the most successful British bands of the last two decades, Blur have won a total of five BRIT Awards, and were twice nominated for the Mercury Music Award.

"Based on these 18 songs, Blur aren't just the best pop band of the '90s, with greater range and depth than their peers; they rank among the best pop bands of all time." - AllMusic

"Blur is easily among the best bands to come out of the '90s Britpop scene. Borrowing from their influences (a teaspoon Stone Roses, a healthy dose of the Kinks, a dab of the Beatles, and a sprinkling of the Smiths), they carved out a sound that was uniformly accessible. Though they produced five great albums out of the six they recorded (their debut, Leisure, was lacking), their strength has always been their singles. The Best of Blur might be a little useless to old fans who already own their old stuff, since 17 of the 18 tracks are taken from previous albums. However, if any fans are like me and verging on becoming burnt-out on Blur, the disc is a perfect way to get reacquainted and fall in love all over again." - Pitchfork
