Blur release new album compilation

Modern Life is Rubbish

Britpop boys Blur will be releasing a new compilation album to coincide with their upcoming reunion tour.  Titled Midlife:  A Beginner’s Guide to Blur, the two cd set will feature 25 tracks picked from their seven studio albums.  Truly a beginner’s guide, it’s a shame that there are no bootlegs, b-sides or live recordings featured here, although one notes the inclusion of ‘Popscene’, which was released as a single/video in 1992, but did not appear on an album.

Although the band have already released a ‘Best of’ album, any new releases from this quartet are more than welcome – let’s hope they get cracking on some new material!
