Out Of Stock Blur - The Great Escape (Special Edition 2xLP)
"...In the simplest terms, The Great Escape is the flip side of Parklife. Where Blur's breakthrough album was a celebration of the working class, drawing on British pop from the '60s and reaching through the '80s, The Great Escape concentrates on the suburbs, featuring a cast of characters all trying to cope with the numbing pressures of modern life. Consequently, it's darker than Parklife, even if the melancholia is hidden underneath the crisp production and catchy melodies. Even the bright, infectious numbers on The Great Escape have gloomy subtexts, whether it's the disillusioned millionaire of "Country House" and the sycophant of "Charmless Man" or the bleak loneliness of "Globe Alone" and "Entertain Me...."

About: "...This is the moment that Britpop was reaching its zenith, at least in terms of the popularity & output of its primary figures. But The Great Escape also marks the moment where Blur themselves truly pushed the Britpop aesthetic & ethos about as far as they could..." (www.stereogum.com)
