This is dull. What they need to do is to collect their b-sides, demos and a live show and reissue that on vinyl, as a deluxe package

good point I guess - sort of along the lines of Blur 21 TGE CD2?

Not my favourite album by some distance, but I'm totally bowing to commercial pressure and buying this :)

Pressed on heavyweight, split coloured vinyl (blue & white), this version of the album is only available from the blur store.
https://s.warnermusic.com.au/products/b ... btEALw_wcB

$68.95 delivered vs $70 delivered (or $90 if you want tracked shipping!) from the ever unreliable Blur store (although Warner Music is a whole different type of awful to deal with).

In case any Aussies are thinking of pulling the trigger.

The first Blur album I listened to after finding it in my dads collection. Not their best but maybe my favourite due to the memories I have of playing it loud in my bedroom, air guitar on stand by. I'm not fussed about the lack of extra material. Vinyl looks good. A nice thing to have.

Wouldn't consider buying any other format; certainly not mp3s!
