The Great Escape is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Blur, released on 11 September 1995 on Food and Virgin Records. The album received near-universal acclaim from critics on release and reached number one in the UK Albums Chart. It was the band's first record to crack the US charts, reaching number 150. Less than a year after the album was released, it was certified triple platinum in the UK.

Where Blur's breakthrough album was a celebration of the working class, drawing on British pop from the '60s and reaching through the '80s, The Great Escape concentrates on the suburbs, featuring a cast of characters all trying to cope with the numbing pressures of modern life. Consequently, it's darker than Parklife, even if the melancholia is hidden underneath the crisp production and catchy melodies. Even the bright, infectious numbers on The Great Escape have gloomy subtexts, whether it's the disillusioned millionaire of "Country House" and the sycophant.

The Great Escape is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Blur, released on 11 September 1995 on Food and Virgin Records. Less than a year after the album was released, it was certified triple platinum in the U. .The album continued the band's run of hit singles, with "Country House", "The Universal", "Stereotypes" and "Charmless Man".

Every Blur album is good, good not always to the full 10/10 meter but always clocks in with worth in our CD collections. The Great Escape is no exception. If you liked Parklife's "This Is a Low" then there's a better or equal track called "He Thought Of Cars". I don't know any group who turns simple subject matter into deep musical great escapes like Blur does. The deep, more melancholy tracks are: "Best Days", and "He Thought of Cars".

Caught in the rat race/Terminally. Initially, Blur’s label, Parlophone – a subsidiary of EMI, and Oasis’ label, Creation, worked together to ensure Blur’s single and Oasis’ Some Might Say follow up, Roll With It had plenty of space between each other.

It wasn’t always thus. It was critical euphoria that would prove to be short-lived – truth be told, about as long as it took publishers to realise Oasis would probably shift more magazines for them. It’s not a record the band think particularly fondly of either. In 2007, Damon Albarn mused that it was "messy".
