CD Review: Blur

Blur 21: The Box (Virgin)

by

This massive box – which includes all seven of the band's studio albums plus a bunch of unreleased tracks and other rarities – should settle once and for all which Britpop group from the '90s mattered most. Unlike Oasis, Blur didn't get blustier as they got bigger; they got artsier and smarter. And they were a restless bunch, jumping from '60s-style garage rave-ups to club-shaking dance music to guitar-stabbing alt-rock without missing a beat.
