Blur - Parklife (2nd Hand Compact Disc) | Audio CD
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 0724382919421
Although Blur had long been recognised as one of the premier bands responsible for the reinvigoration of Britpop in the 1990's, it's 1994's Parklife that truly provided the template for the entire movement. Blur drew on influences The Kinks & Small Faces (& others) to create an album that's as English as a rainy Sunday in front of the gas fire.
Parklife is full of songs that, quite frankly, don't make much sense outside of the British Isles, songs that find joy in the mundane, like "Girls & Boys" (a song about working-class holidaymakers in the sun) and "Parklife" (a day in the life of a cheeky, unemployed bench-sitter).
Witty, ironic and irreverent, Parklife remains one of those rare albums that sum up a specific place and time (Britain in the mid-1990s). For that reason alone, it can be considered one of Blur's finest albums.

"The appeal of "Parklife" is that it's an album that gets stronger and stronger the more you hear it. One playthrough and there's a tune that gets stuck in your head. One more and another one gets in there. Soon you'll find yourself listening to the album "just one more time" just to find out if your ears will fall in love with any particular tune."
"It all adds up to Albarn's first masterpiece. Parklife still sounds surprisingly fresh and vibrant, simply because the composition is so detailed and subtle. No new British band over the past ten years has anything approaching Coxon's skill on the guitar or Albarn's flair for the dramatic. A classic in the best sense." - Google Reviews.
