  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (11/95, pp.124-125) - 6 - Reasonably Good - "...Blur turns the rotating-robot staccato silverware clank of manlier Limeys like Elastica...into dance oriented pop muzik. When it's swirling fast and busy, it's wonderful..."
    Q (12/99, p.84) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
    Q (2/96, p.62) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995.
    Q (10/95, p.110) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...THE GREAT ESCAPE's rich tapestry is matched by music of kaleidoscopic surprises--half punk and half pop-psychedelic in its influences, restlessly innovative in its execution..."
    Melody Maker (12/23-30/95, pp.66-67) - Ranked #10 on Melody Maker's list of 1995's `Albums Of The Year.'
    Melody Maker (9/9/95, p.33) - Bloody Essential - "...Blur's fourth album (theirs is now the most interesting career since Joy Division metamorphosed into New Order) is more robotic than rock, less Kinks than Kraftwerk....Blur understand the geometry of the song, and the basic principles of pop, better than anyone today....The experimental hits just keep on coming..."
    NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #9 in NME's `Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995.
    NME (Magazine) (9/9/95, p.46) - 9 (out of 10) - "...If Noel Oasis' strength derives from an ambition to be the John Lennon of his generation, then Blur want to be Lennon AND McCartney. Which means THE GREAT ESCAPE is so rammed with tunes, ideas, emotions, humour, tragedy, farce, and edgy beauty that's it's utterly beyond contemporary compare..."
