With this 1997 release, "Blur found Pavement in the mid 90s the way Dylan found Jesus in the late 70s..." (pitchfork.com)

"If Be Here Now was a bloated, indulgent record that exemplified all its makers’ worst traits, Blur was an unexpected and unlikely tonal shift; a brave LP that more than earned its self-titled status, however foolhardy it seemed at the time. Add to that the career-defining works unleashed in the same year by Spiritualized, Radiohead and the Verve, and if you really want to mull something like the ‘death of Britpop’, you probably have all the ammunition you need right there.
But while Blur doesn’t quite match albums like OK Computer or Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space in terms of wild invention or sheer emotional resonance, it remains a very, very fine work. In fact, for something that felt like such a curveball at the time, it must be gratifying for the band how integral it now feels to their discography as a whole; signposting the leap into experimentation that marked their twilight years while celebrating influences as diverse as Bowie and the Kinks to Beck and Pavement over its 14 unanimously great, sometimes iconic songs. Blur might never again sound quite as carefree as they had done in the past, but Blur made it abundantly clear that they never intended to." (http://drownedinsound.com)
