The album Parklife was "love at the first sight" for me, definitely my favourite Blur album. I listen to it quite often.

Also, my favourite song -This is a Low- is on this album.

Modernlife for Me! It was the first album I bought all those years ago in August '93 after seeing them play at Reading '93. It was so different to other records at the time..Been a fan ever since.

1 Modern life is Rubbish
2 13
3 blur
4 Parklife
5 Lesuire
6 The Great Escape
7 Think Tank

Ahh that was so difficult to choose only one, but I had to go with 13. That album is one of my favorites ever, and it makes me wish so badly Graham had stayed around for all of the Think Tank sessions. I loved the direction they were going, but I still regard Think Tank as a masterpiece as well. Which leads me to my list:
13
Modern Life (usually say that 13 and MLIR are tied for my fav when people ask me)
Think Tank
Blur (VERY hard to choose between Think Tank and Blur for my third choice... love them both)
Parklife
Leisure
The Great Escape

Like everyone else says, Leisure and TGE are not bad albums. They are even masterful in parts (The Universal was a masterpiece for sure.) But yeah this is very hard to decide... makes me wanna listen to them all again right now! :D

13 and MLIR are my joint favourite albums. Very VERY hard to decide on just one out of those two. I can't do it. Only album I'm not as enthusiastic about is Parklike. Yes, you read that correctly. It's my least favourite Blur album BY FAR. In fact I feel bad for putting Leisure as my second least favourite album because I LOVE LEISURE.

13/MLIR
Think Tank
Blur
The Great Escape
Leisure
Parklife
