The true core of Britpop.While compilations from Blurs rivals of the 90s are often redudant(Oasis) or inconsistent(Pulp),Damon Albarn and cia career always had the tools to sound fresh.
And this album proves it.Dealing with their selection of best songs (not singles) and without ignoring any period of the band,the compilation is just stellar.And Am I the only one who still gets excited after the initial moments of Popscene?

Slightly tops the 'Best of Blur' greatest hits comp, which is saying something considering that usually comps suck, and there's enough quality Blur material to fill up two, two disc compilations. The fact that these songs continue to carry their essential punch even years after the fact doesn't hurt either. These dudes haven't released an album since 2003, and yet somehow there's a distinctly different feel to this as compared to 'Best Of'. 'Mid Life' carries a sense of accomplishment, a cannon of 90s Brit pop which the previous comp couldn't even hold a candle to. Now if Albarn, Coxon and co. could put down their swords, pick up their guitars and just rock again. Added bonus, everything here slays and it's not all album only tracks or singles. 'Woo hoo!' indeed.
