Anyway on listening to The Magic Whip today, it opens with the Blur sound we’re familiar with from the early to mid 90s.

As a result, the band helped to popularise the Britpop genre and achieved mass popularity in the UK, aided by a chart battle with rival band Oasis in 1995 dubbed "The Battle of Britpop". I like to imagine everyone in Blur was sitting around a room, and after a long silence of watching everyone else coming out with albums, without saying anything, they all stood up, walked in unison to the recording studio in the next room and hit record. Blur's self-titled fifth album (1997) saw another stylistic shift, influenced by the lo-fi styles of American indie rock groups, and became their third UK chart-topping album. I'm glad Blur emerged from the scattered years and created this album for everyone to enjoy and didn't leave it unfinished in the Orient: it's going to get a lot of plays in my circle.The record came sealed and appears to be the above version in every conceivable way (even has the obi), but has no poster or download card. Following a stylistic change influenced by English guitar pop groups such as the Kinks, Depeche Mode and Radiohead, Blur released Modern Life Is Rubbish (1993), Parklife (1994) and The Great Escape (1995).

I don't have a clever ice cream or Blur reference to end this review on, but this album is a flavor of music we've been missing that has brought clarity to my cloud-filled album library. It wasn’t until Graham Coxon reprised these sessions and presented them to long-time producer Stephen Street, who went on to develop them with the guitarist, that they realised they might have material worthy of a new album.

Thankfully, this is the first album released this year that has left me simultaneously pleasantly relaxed and upbeat. The Magic Whip is the upcoming eighth studio album by the English rock band Blur, which will be released on 27 April 2015.
