Blue is the sixth full length album by The Jesus Lizard, released in 1998. Produced by Andy Gill, it is something of a departure for The Jesus Lizard, exploring some of the more experimental instincts hinted at on earlier songs like "Happy Bunny Goes Fluff-Fluff Along" on "Pure". It is the only album with drummer Jim Kimball, who had replaced Mac McNeilly. A limited edition vinyl pressing was released on Jetset Records on April 21, 1998.

As of 2009, the album is out of print.[5]
