Blur Chronology

Leisure
(1991)
Modern Life Is Rubbish
(1993)

Leisure was the first album by Blur, released in August 1991 and making # 7 in the UK. The US version of the album had some differences. The songs "She's So High", "There's No Other Way" and "Bang" were also released as singles. Released during the waning days of the Shoegazer period, Leisure was considered an album that was catching the end of a trend, as were Blur. But they would return in an astounding and unsuspecting fashion with their second album, Modern Life Is Rubbish, in 1993.
