I made it to 50 last year... just. This year I am aiming for the same. Upping it to 55 just seemed a little scary, and it seems half the books on my 'to read' shelf are extremely fat and would kill a charging elephant at 50 paces.

You are correct, my friend. I'm a new fan of both, yes; therefore, I haven't heard Blur's newer stuff just yet. Only heard Modern Life is Rubbish, and that one is quite upbeat and poppy. Having said that, I don't actually see the Blur/Supergrass resemblance - as I think the latter is more rockish sounding than the former.

What other Blur album would you recommend I listen to? You know, to get a much deeper insight on what they're really like.

Modern Life is Rubbish is such a brilliant album, probably my favourite of theirs. The most poppy is definitely Parklife though. That's the one that really got them a lot of fans back when it first came out. As for the later stuff, '13' is what I think of as more grown up Blur. So I'd recommend those two for now. You should be able to get them on [ profile] indie_exchange :)

Yeah, a a lot of people seem to say that 13 is a lot different than their usual stuff. I'll take your word for it then. Thanks. :)

What would you say is your favourite Pulp album, btw?

I really love This Is Hardcore. It's very underrated. Second favourite has to be Different Class. My favourite Pulp song is I Spy :)
