Review of Blur - The Best of

As with so many bands, Blur released their video retrospective, with promotional videos from their first 22 singles (at the time of writing, Music is My Radar, Out of Time, Crazy Beat and Good Song are all missing). The DVD, much like the CD "Best of" released at a similar time, provides a good introduction to Blur's sound over the first 10 years of their career, and provides proper access to some classic videos for the first time. Coffee + TV, To the End and The Universal in particular are worth a few minutes of anyone's time.

Unfortunately, however, some of the videos are kinda slack - End of a Century, Stereotypes and Tender are just live videos (although admittedly the Tender one works better since it's an actual live recording) and worse, there's no other material on the DVD. Not even a short documentary. This shortcoming sadly puts this one into the category of one to be brought only by hardcore fans, or picked up in a bargain bin rather than a disc anyone could buy and enjoy.
