Blur – Parklife (2/6)

Damon Albarn, lead singer and main songwriter for Blur, had predicted in the late 1980s that his third album would be released in 1994 and would make Blur the biggest band in the country, and when you look at Parklife as an album it’s clear he wasn’t wrong either. Truly an album that is totally British to the core, it is the brilliance of Albarn’s musical skill and understanding brought together in a soundtrack.

Featuring the hit singles in ‘To the End’, ‘End of a Century’, ‘Boys and Girls’, and ‘Parklife’, Parklife is a return to roots for Blur; from start to finish, it’s an album that blends together the wit, humour and cheekiness that would win over so many fans and would put British rock right back on the map. Selling over five million copies and scooping up numerous accolades on the way to being established as one of the must-have albums of all time, Parklife remains as popular today for so many as it did when it first came out.
