Descriptions du produit

A l'occasion de son grand retour en France , Blur livrera le 29 juin prochain une intrigante compilation, Midlife: A Beginner's Guide To Blur. Comportant 25 titres, cette compilation en deux CD de Blur se veut comme son nom l'indique, davantage un voyage à travers l'univers du groupe qu'une simple compilation de hits. Se présentant au départ comme un fleuron de la Britpop dans les années 90, Blur a su ensuite évoluer en défrichant la Pop comme peu de formations avant lui tout en gardant intact son génie de la composition. Evitant toute linéarité chronologique, le tracklisting de « Midlife... » se veut avant tout un intriguant portrait du groupe, alternant chansons climatiques (Beetlebum, Out of Time, He Thought Of Cars, Death of a Party, Trimm Trabb) et hymnes pop survitaminés (Girls & Boys, Parklife, Song 2). Reposant sur un songwriting hautement vénéneux, ce double cd très addictif aborde donc la discographie de Blur par son versant mélancolique et aventureux. Un réconfort de tout instant pour le fan, une introduction parfaite pour le néophyte.

Contrairement au commentateur précédent, je trouve que cette compilation est de très bonne qualité. Bien sûr, il n'y a pas "tout", et d'ailleurs si on veut tout, il faut acheter tous les albums!
En revanche, si on ne possède pas de disque de ce groupe, cette compilation est un excellent choix, elle comporte une grande majorité des tubes du groupe (à 2-3 titres près, c'est vrai) ainsi que de petites pépites nettement moins connues mais non moins intéressantes (Good Song, popscene qui ne figure sur aucun album par exemple). De plus c'est un double cd, il y a donc plus de pistes que sur le best of précédent, ce qui n'est pas un mal vu la quantité de bons titres qu'a fait ce groupe.

Pour un album sur lequel il manque les portes d'entrées indiscutables à Blur que sont End of a Century, Charmless Man, To the End, On your Own, ainsi que d'autres merveilles comme You're so great, No Distance left to run ou Caravan, appeler ça "A beginner's guide", il fallait oser !!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent title for a Blur collection 1 août 2009
Par Andrew Terrick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I'll admit to being one of those Americans who didn't know much of anything about Blur before Song 2. As so often happens when coming across some music that is enjoyable, I immersed myself in the back catalog, and by that time Blur's was already entailing four studio albums, albums that showcased quite a musical difference from the self-titled LP. And I loved every minute of it. Whereas the Greatest Hits collection showcased the vast amount of singles, this album truly comes across as a beginner's guide...a smattering of hits and album tracks from those five albums and the subsequent two afterward. Its more of a superbly constructed personal mixtape or iTunes playlist for the band than anything, showcasing some extraordinary songs not released on their own like Trimm Trabb, Badhead, This is a Low, and Advert.

Every compilation package for any band comes with its faults, and this is no different. Some big hits are missing (especially for the US audience, Country House and There's No Other Way could've made the cut over some of the other singles). No track from their incredible b-side collection is represented. And there's nothing new to give those of us with the studio albums reason to go out and buy this (maybe that's a good thing...though probably not from a marketing standpoint). But if I were to be on the lookout for a quality introduction to one of the best bands of the 90s, this comes pretty close to how it should be.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The anti-Greatest Hits album.... 10 mars 2010
Par H. Jin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Well, this is different.

Normally with "Greatest Hits" packages, the band emphasises its most commercially successful period, with more interesting and unusual material from their early or late career ignored. 'Midlife' is basically the exact opposite of this: it almost turns its back on Blur's Britpop era in favour of key album tracks and fan favourites. Instead of focussing heavily on 'Parklife' and 'The Great Escape', every album gets a decent representation here, even the much-maligned `Leisure'.

On one hand, this really works. Blur were a lot more varied than casual fans might think, from the Madchester-influenced 'Leisure' to the alternative lo-fi of 'Blur' and '13' and the electronic art-rock of 'Think Tank'. The selections (particularly from the last three albums) seem deliberately chosen to highlight this diversity; distorted rockers, dark introspective ballads, unsettling electronic soundscapes. It certainly wasn't all bright Britpop, so it's good to see that `Midlife' really showcases these different styles, instead of just the big, obvious hits.

Although the songs are not presented in chronological order (which would have been nice), the track listing is excellent. `Beetlebum' and `Tender' are strong openers, while `This is a Low' and `Battery in your Leg' are obvious closers. And both CDs contain a mixture of radio hits (`Parklife', `Song 2', `Girls & Boys', `Coffee & TV') and more challenging material (`Trimm Trabb', `Death Of A Party', `Bugman', `Strange News From Another Star').

But to leave 'Country House' and 'Charmless Man' off is ridiculous; there's no way around that. These songs were not only hits, they virtually defined Blur's sound and image in the mid 90's, and arguably defined the whole Britpop era. If you absolutely must make an artistic statement , leave off some of the lesser hits from the period. But these two songs are essential, particularly considering 'Midlife' is a 2 CD set containing 25 songs. A few other important songs like `Crazy Beat', `End Of A Century', and `There's No Other Way' are missing as well.

I give it four stars. The music itself is probably worth five, but to leave off those important songs means `Midlife' doesn't quite do its job of being `A Beginner's Guide To Blur'.....even if it does contain some excellent cuts, and some of the best music of its era.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Definitive Access Point Into the Sonic Wonder Called Blur 6 mars 2015
Par Gabriel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Blur had no say in their first greatest hits compilation - Blur: The Best Of, and it shows. Of the many amazing singles included, many of their best were not included due to chart placement. Some of their best singles (Popscene, Chemical World, and Death of a Party to be exact) were excluded in favor of the ones that charted well. While The songs on The Best Of were all great, the compilation would not give new listeners or even casual listeners the right idea about blur. Hence Midlife coming into the picture. Midlife does not only include the best singles blur released in their current career, but their best songs (minus a few deep album cuts that could hit home, my own personal favorite being "On the Way to the Club" from Think Tank) in general. This order of song in their sequence give a great idea of what Blur was and how far a wingspan this band has sonically. The band, now with input on their compilation, decidedly put what they felt would be the best songs from each album that could spark interest from a listener to look at each album and become enthralled in the masterwork that is Blur. This album forgets the hits like There's No Other Way (a song that can't really be consider one of the best) and Country House (a song the band themselves have bitter memories about) in favor of the better songs on their respective albums (Sing in place of There's No Other Way and He Thought of Cars in place of Country House). The only truly out of place omission here happens to be To the End from Blur's Parklife as it is replaced by another similarly topiced song from the album, "Bad Head". While both tracks are great, they are equal in quality, so omitting a hit for the sake of omitting a hit is a bit of a bold choice. However, if you want just a stringed up collection of chart hits, then go buy Blur: The Best Of. If you want a real compilation to get yourself fully into the sound of Blur, then this album, Midlife: A Beginner's Guide to Blur, is the access point you need. Because, contrary to what Some Might Say, there's more to Blur than, y'know, that "Woo Hoo" song.

Blur was never big here in the US and the only song that really ever got noticed was "Song 2" (which really isn't the truth as "There's No Other Way" and "Girls and Boys" were minor hits in the US ever before "Song 2" even came out) I bought the album because I wanted to get a better overview of the band than their last greatest hits record (which I actually own as well) I soon started listening to this album and realized it had great tracks that deserve way more credit. BUT the thing that killed it for me was not having songs like "Country House" "On Your Own" "End Of A Century" "Charmless Man" all of these songs are their best known and to think that they would just simply skip over those like they didn't exist was hard to deal with. There so good it made me miss listening to them. I really only recommend this album if you want to look deeper into Blur's "non-hits but hits" songs. Otherwise, if you want their most known, get "The Best Of Blur" and check out Damon Albarn's other band Gorillaz.

"Midlife: A Beginner's Guide to Blur" is just that, an excellent introduction to quite a solid band! This modest two disc set gives you just a few tracks off each album, displaying the rather wide ground Blur covered in their career. Since its pretty evenhanded, this also means that no album is "ruined" by having too many tracks included here, so if you like certain songs and want more, you can grab the album those tracks were taken from and still have plenty of new music to enjoy!

As others have mentioned, it is odd that "Country House" isn't on here, but the excellent single-only "Popscene" is included so that's quite a plus (for some reason "Popscene" *wasn't* on The Best of Blur despite that being mostly a singles collection)!

Minor quibbles aside, there's not a bad track on here and Blur was a whip smart band. If you've never bothered checking them out before, this does a great job at introducing you to their wide range of talents.
