The Universal Blur Download 'The Universal' on iTunes
To celebrate 52 years of Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisted, get our rundown of some of the best sixth albums ever.
1965 saw Dylan flip the switch and "go electric", while paying tribute to the blues. Released on 30 August, the album - which was named after the highway which connected his birthplace of Minnesota to the southern cities famed for their musical heritage - spawned the likes of Ballad Of A Thin Man, and the iconic Like a Rolling Stone.
1988's Green spelt a new era for Athens, Georgia's finest. They left indie label IRS and signed with major Warner Brothers, which led the way to the multi-platinum selling Out Of Time and Automatic For The People. Green was charged with political and environmental concerns, with Orange Crush having a dig at US foreign policy.
13 saw the band work with producer William Orbit and the somewhat low-key album is lyrically concerned with the breakup of Damon Albarn and Justine Frischmann. Not the most lively of Blur albums, but one of the deepest with songs like Tender and No Distance Left To Run.
The duo's 2007 curtain call was their only album for major label Warner Brothers and included the track You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do What You're Told) and Rag And Bone.
1993's Republic was the legendary Manchester band's first album not to be released on the Factory label… and would be their last LP until the band came back off hiatus in 2001 with Get Ready.
This 1987 included the hits Strangelove and Never Let Me Down Again and saw the band achieve stadium status in the US.
Featuring the singles Lyla and The Importance Of Being Idle, the sixth outing from the Gallagher brothers saw all the members of the band have a say in the writing of the material. It had the biggest first week sales of an Oasis album since Be Here Now.
A definitely comedown album after the Britpop hi-jinks of Different Class, this 1998 outing includes the sleazy title track and Help The Aged.
This mammoth 1975 double album saw the quartet declare themselves the Kings Of Rock 'N' Roll, with tracks like Kashmir, Trampled Underfoot and In My Time Of Dying.
Following the huge success of Only Revolutions, The Biff released an ambitious double album at the beginning of 2013, divided into two halves: The Sand at the Core of Our Bones and The Land at the End of Our Toes.
Having killed off Ziggy Stardust, Bowie created a new persona for this epic 1973 album, which included The Jean Genie and Drive-In Saturday.
Robert Smith completed the transformation from gloom merchant to pop pixie with this 1985 album that included the hits In Between Days and Close To Me.
This blues-rock extravaganza was the last to be recorded with singer Jim Morrison, who died three months after its release in April 1971. Recorded in the band's LA offices, it's a far cry from the group's original psychedelic rock manifesto, but mellow all the same.
Dave Grohl's 2007 effort was produced by Gil Norton of Pixies and There Is Nothing Left To Lose fame and included The Pretender and The Long Road To Ruin.
Christmas 1965. This is where it starts getting interesting. Sitars. Acoustic ballads. Lyrical obscurity. Hanging out with Dylan. Norwegian Wood. Drive My Car. Nowhere Man. "The Word is love". And so on…
