Re: The Jaded Hearts Club

I have listened to a few of the tracks already and just don't really get the attraction. Too many ego's wanting to be centre of attention for my liking, Graham in my opinion is the more talented member of this group, but doesn't come acros like he gets the credit he deserves, but I guess I am biast ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Nice interview, I'm looking forward to hearing the album in full, in its correct running order. I think its a little strange to listen to individual tracks being released over a nine month period, songs often make more sense in the context of some form of natural running order or theme. I actually t...

Re: Favorite Song Machine track so far

Desolee for me, especially the extended version, beautiful vocals and backing instruments, such a cool chilled track. I do like Strange Timez and has really grown on me, love the dark dance groove and Robert Smith is a great choice to work with and to have this open the album and then Beck, what a g...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Really great song, Robert Smith is great on this and works really well alongside Damon’s vocals. Just listened to an alternative version on Apple Music too, even more of a dance vibe.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

A definite improvement over Friday 13th, very Gorillaz and good to hear Damon for the majority of the song, I like it. Certainly will be good to hear it all as a complete album.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, London, 20 Jun 2015

I have to admit, I did hope we would have had something during the 5 years after TMW release. I understood his next thing would be Gorillaz as this was put on hold for Blur in 2015, but I never thought we would have 3 Gorillaz albums and one from TGTBATQ (not forgetting his upcoming solo one) before...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I think the problem is, despite these songs being released in a single format they will make up an album later in the year, so they won't be all like Momentary Bliss. It is like PB being released in a similar way and say 'Sweepstakes' (which I like) being released after episodes which included Stylo...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I really can’t see him ever revisiting Demon Days in sound, but I do like these songs and this new one may grow on me as part of an album. The songs do sound relevant to today’s music, which I have felt has been missing right back to PB in parts. I guess waiting nearly two months for an episode to a...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I see something is happening regarding Gorillaz on the Jimmy Kimmel live show tonight (was supposed to be last night). Not sure it would be a live from home performance as you’d be stripping away any featured artists, band members etc, although plenty have done it since the lockdown. I actually hope...

Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

Wasn’t expecting much earlier when watching the live broadcast, but what I have heard is beautiful. I agree about the ER & Dr Dee comparison, although on 2 of 3 listens of this I think the songs stand out better as individual tracks. This is kind of what I wanted ER to sound like when I heard Damon ...

Re: RIP Tony Allen

I was at the Roundhouse for the gig front row to the left side of the stage and I remember them starting again, Damon often does this, it kind of ruins it a little when he does this. Amazing gig and unveiling of the debut album, I remember listening to the songs unfold thinking oh well if there is n...

Re: RIP Tony Allen

I am really shocked to hear this, really sad news :( A big part of TGTBATQ has died but he seemed to be a really genuinely nice guy as well as a very talented musician.
