The Sky Is Too High was the first solo album by Blur guitarist Graham Coxon. It was released in 1998 while he was still a member of Blur. He wrote and recorded all the music himself. Most of the album consists of lo-fi acoustic songs with some overdubbed electric guitar and percussion, similar in style to the Blur songs Miss America (from Modern Life is Rubbish) and You're So Great (from Blur, one of the few Blur songs with Coxon singing lead vocals).
