List Rules Vote for your favorite Blur studio album.

This Blur discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Blur albums can be found at the top of the list. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Blur albums, with the help of your votes. Consisting of members Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James, and Dave Rowntree, English rock band Blur achieved both critical and commercial success, while establishing the Britpop genre. Blur debuted with Leisure (1991) which fused sounds of the Madchester scene along with ‘60s psychedelia, and jangly guitar pop. With Parklife (1994), the catty British music press pitted them up against Oasis who would release Definitely, Maybe (1994) several months later. With singles like "Country House" and "Song 2," Blur received a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2012. 

To make it easy for you, we haven't included Blur singles, live albums, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Blur album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Blur album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

This list of popular Blur CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion. You're able to copy this fact-based list to build your own just like it, re-rank it to fit your opinions, then publish it to share with your friends.
