That book isn't about Blur. Once you've understood that you either want to know about Alex's life or not. If you do you'll quickly see a guy who spent the last 20 years drunk, unfaithful to his girlfriend, yet sincere and passionated to his music. If you're looking a definitive guide to blur from an insider's point of view, this book might not be the real deal. It'll tell you little you couldn't find elsewhere.

I enjoyed the book once I understood I wasn't reading about blur but about one of its member. Alex writes well and tells a nice story. I think the last third of the book is harshly edited and less smooth than the first half but either it's due to the editors or to Alex's missing memories (the guy was drunk most of the time from what he says) is hard to guess.

Overall an enjoyable and quick read.
