As music in the latter half of the 90s drifted away from the Britpop style Blur had helped popularize, the band shifted into a noisier and more aggressive style of music. In this episode, we cover Blur's 1997 self-titled album through 2015's The Magic Whip, a period filled with inner conflict, departures, reunions, and transformations from a band who never seemed comfortable doing the same thing twice.
