I love it when bands get weird. And it doesn’t get much weirder than Blur’s album 13.
I must admit. I wasn’t into the Brit-Pop stylings of Blur. Their self titled album (you know, the one with Song 2 on it, known by most people as “the song that goes WOOOO HOOO!) was pretty good but spotty. 13 is a dream come true for me. The weird, yet highly listenable album that is the perfect companion for rainy 4am drives through South Dakota (I did it once and it was amazing).
What I love most about this album is how it just goes on and on and on. Songs end, but then Blur goes into something off the wall. Is it part of the song or is it something else? Who cares. I love it.
Coffee and TV is the probably the most “catchy” song on the album (I use that term loosely) but I’ll leave you with a live version of Trimm Trabb. God, I hope Blur gets back together for good.
