Cant remember the last time I did one of these, and I think the only non-single I did was "I Run Away" a few years ago. Anyway this time we're discussing "Blur", from 2008.

So what do you guys think of this hidden gem? Its probably one of the most underrated songs on "Circus", which I can see why since the album is full of bangers, but there's something incredibly sexy and beautiful about this one. I love the production, with the guitar and the beat, her dark raspy voice just gels so well. Its like a sadder cousin to Early Mornin' since this one is more about regret.

Definitely agree with the comparison to ‘Early Mornin’. It’s very underrated in her fan base. I’d rate it a 7.5/10.


Since we’re talking about EM. If this remix was released even today I think it would be a hit;

'Blur' is my least favourite song in her entire catalogue. I really don't have time for that blandness. It's just such a non event for me and bores me half to death.

I hate that I dislike it so much tbh sad.gif

It’s probably the most HONEST track on the album, tbh. It deserves recognition for paying tribute to ‘Blackout’.

Pretty awful. Skip-worthy. My Baby levels of dull.

Far from actually! She has 3 songs in my top 10 of all time and 2 of which are ballads! 🙃

Ugh lol

I think the reason why I differentiate from other stans is that I know and admit when she does shit and won't blindly love it just because she is my queen tongue.gif

I love this song. I always thought she said “I think I made a mess Brit” and loved it but realised “I think I need an asparin” is the actual lyric.

I recall 'Blur' being one track I'd always skip when the album was first released but, listening to it now, I was definitely too harsh on it. Still wouldn't call it one of my favourites, but it's a nice moment that works on you as the song goes on.

'My Baby' is far and away the worst song on Circus. Even more insulting than the song itself is the fact 'Amnesia' was demoted to 'bonus track' status. manson.gif

Yeah that’s how I feel about the rest of the BJ album.
