Rolling Stone (p.79) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Advert' and 'Pressure on Julian' anticipate the full-throttle indie-rock swerve on the '97 hit BLUR, with more Kinks and David Bowie in the clamor."
Q (1/94, p.85) - Included in Q's list of 'The 50 Best Albums Of 1993' - "...tears into a rough-and-tumble Kinksian landscape with gusto...a watertight package...."
Alternative Press (11/93, p.64) - "...[MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH] is pleasant, non-threatening, and an awful lot of fun..."
Audio Magazine (2/94, p.82) - "...Blur brings some elan to this rite of passage, with riveting guitar work and more variety than on their 1991 debut, LEISURE...."
NME (Magazine) (12/25/93, p.66) - Ranked #7 in New Musical Express' list of 'The Top 50 LPs Of 1993'
NME (Magazine) (5/8/93, p.31) - (7) - Very Good - "...[MODERN LIFE] looks great...it's a London odyssey crammed full of strange commuters, Peeping Thomases and lost dreams...you can put those idiot Suede comparisons away now..."

Notes

Audio Remasterer: Frank Arkwright.
Liner Note Author: Miranda Sawyer.

Following LEISURE, a debut featuring many exquisite moments of melody, Blur began their chameleonic artistic journey with MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH, a record that eschewed massive sonic edifices and swirling harmonies for more basic guitar rock. However, there was little simple about the foursome's creations, as singer/chief-songwriter Damon Albarn fulfilled the promise he hinted at on the prior album: a Beatle-esque ability to pour an incredible amount of drama and adornment into small spaces and emerge with delectable pop.
Leadoff track "For Tomorrow," with its jangly guitar and "la la la la la" chorus sets the tone of the album as well as an opening song can. Its lyrics dance with a subtle complexity, examining optimism while mired in the repetition of modern life (and its rubbish) as renegade strings pop in at just the right points. It's the surprising little touches that really define the band and make Blur's concoctions soar above the rabble. MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH is one of those records that improves with each listen, with the quiet brilliance of story-songs like "Colin Zeal," "Chemical World," and "Pop Scene" (a smart addition to the US release). MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH is a testament to Albarn's maturing songwriting gift and a tightly wrapped pop record simultaneously behind and ahead of its time.
