Review (Scott McCutcheon 15/07/24)

They say never just a book by its cover and should perhaps also say never judge an album by its cover. Other than a few of their biggest hits I have to say that I am not a massive lover of Blur and as such wasn’t overly keen on watching Blur: To the End. Well as Cilla Black used to say surprise surprise as turns out Blur: To the End is a terrific piece of filmmaking that will not only delight Blur fans but also those who have no more than a passing interest in the band.

Told through the eyes of the four bandmates Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree as they came together in 2023 for their first album in 8 years and a first ever gig at London’s Wembley Stadium director Toby L spins his story in such a way that by end of the bands massive gig at Wembley Stadium in 2023 it would take the hardest of hearts not to feel some sort of emotional pull.

It might be overly sentimental and the back slapping between the bandmates does feel like a bit of overkill at times but Blur: To the End is a fitting tribute to one of the UKs biggest bands of the last thirty years.

Blur: To The End rocks and comes highly recommend for not only Blur fans but also music fans in general.
