In 1991 they decided to be shoegazer - because that was hip.

In 1995 they were Britpop - ditto

In 1997 they were US indie rockers, all of a sudden.

Their 1997 album is OK, and Graham Coxon is a talented guitarist, but Damon Albarn is just a c***.
oh COME ON.

blur are one of the very best groups to come out of the 90's, top five for certain.

Is this a joke? Name ONE song by Albarn that will be remembered in 30 years from now.

financeguy, correct me if I'm wrong but blur were shoegazers only for the leisure album! They didn't jump on any britpop bangwagon (like some people accuse U2 of jumping on the techno bangwagon with Pop ) cos... they WERE britpop!!! for the most part until 1997 like you said when they became indie for some reason! But I loved Beetlebum!... Hated On Your Own. And again, they sound different on Think Tank... or so I hear.

I won't nitpick over dates, but there's not denying they were bandwagon jumpers par excellence. Graham Coxon has even said this in interviews - it's probably why he split the band up, as he was clearly the only genuinely talented musician in the group.

well i don't really care what the general public will remember, because that's impossible to tell.

does song 2 not count?

even if you dismiss that tune, songs like this is a low, no distance left to run, tender, the universal, etc. etc... are amazing.

how you can't see that is beyond me.

if damon was a no talent hack, then someone please explain why not only blur kicks ass (including think tank to a degree), but gorillaz as well?

i'm well aware of coxon's genius, but damon deserves credit too.

What's so great about Song 2?

'No distance left to run' and 'the Universal' - pretty good tracks, I will grant that.

But overall, Suede have done 5 X times as many good songs as Blur. Damon Albarn is not gaze to lick Brett Anderson's shoes.

well there's no question suede have their place too.

but i'm not comparing band against band here, i'm taking blur for their own merits.

they're right up there with the verve for me.

See, this is no good. Is there anyway you could rephrase your post to say that you hate Suede?

I came on here looking for an argument, and I'm damn well gonna have it.

The lyrics in the original post have reminded me of that Tal Bachman song...

she's so hiiiigh
high above me
she's so lovely
she's so hiiiigh
like cleopetra
joan of arc, or aphrodite
