The bands sound has changed over the years and this can be tracked through their albums Leisure, Modern Life Is Rubbish, Park Life, The Great Escape, Blur, 13 and Think Tank. In 2010 a film (No Distance Left To Run) was released about the band and 2012 saw the release of a compliation box set of the complete works of Blur entitled Blur : 21 The Box and Blur : The App.
