The Great Escape

Release date: 
September 11, 1995
Album description: 

Recorded during Blur’s rapid rise in popularity and tabloid recognition, the third and final chapter in what was referred to as the band’s “life trilogy” sees the band present a dark and lavish look at the modern world, populated by night-shift cab drivers, factory workers, lottery players and swinging couples. Justly awarded five star reviews on release in 1995, the album features Blur’s first number 1 single, “Country House” and the beautiful “The Universal”.
