2012 EU reissue 2LP+HQ MP3 edition , cut on 180gram audiophile vinyl-Blur's second album saw them finding their feet just before they suddenly went supernova,including the singles For Tomorow & Chemical World To celebrate the 21st anniversary of their debut release, Blur’s classic follow-up album Modern Life Is Rubbish has now been remastered from the original tapes by Frank Arkwright (The Smiths, Arcade Fire, New Order, Joy Division), with the remastering overseen by legendary original producer, Stephen Street.
Expanded across two discs, the LP format of the Modern Life Is Rubbish remaster is cut on heavyweight 180 gram, audiophile vinyl and housed in a replica of the original sleeve artwork.
-In songs like "Chemical World", they started developing the themes of everyday British life that would follow them to their Parklife era. "Sunday Sunday" provided its own blueprint for the Britpop scene, showing the traditional Sunday dinner with the family for what it really is ("You gather the family round the table and eat enough to sleep"), while "Advert" follows in the spirit of Blur's musical ancestors (art school punks and mods). "Blue Jeans", meanwhile, demonstrates that Damon Albarn has always had a talent for writing delicate, sad ballads. Modern Life Is Rubbish deserves to be heard, not only to show how much Blur changed over the years, but because it still stands up and holds its own against anything they came up with later in their career -Housed in a replica of the original sleeve artwork, including codes to download the albums as high quality MP3.

Blur is easily among the best bands to come out of the '90s Britpop scene. Borrowing from their influences (a teaspoon Stone Roses, a healthy dose of the Kinks, a dab of the Beatles, and a sprinkling of the Smiths), they carved out a sound that was uniformly accessible.
A fan favorite Blurs 1993 sophomore album and critical breakthrough flew in the face of music created by their peers and presented a pop encyclopedia of England to battle the influence of American grunge and the shoegazing baggy affectations of their debut Filled with melody strings brass and quintessential Englishness the albums modest success was followed by a successful UK tour newly found respect evident in the end of year polls and a strong indicator of where Blur were to go nextTo celebrate the 21st Anniversary of their debut release Blurs classic followup album Modern Life Is Rubbish has now been remastered from the original tapes by Frank Arkwright The Smiths Arcade Fire New Order Joy Division with the remastering overseen by legendary original producer Stephen Street Expanded across two discs the LP format of the Modern Life Is Rubbish remaster is cut on 180g vinyl, housed in a replica of the original sleeve artwork, including codes to download the albums as high quality MP3.
