Re: The Great Escape = the code for life

I have always loved MRQ, vocals and guitar especially, and to then lead on to HTOC is genius. There are songs on this album I struggle with, but not this one.

Wow, he definately needs to stay off the cheese and go get some exercise if Blur ever tour again.

Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

Going back to it, I still think it is a very good (not great) album and I can't fault any of its songs as not a bad song on it. After nothing album wise from them since 1999, this should be a dream prospect of a return album, and in many ways for me it still is, but as previously mentioned its missi...

I'm still waiting for my Almanac but I got a CD separately a couple of weeks ago with this "we're so sorry Almanac is delayed" note.
After months of waiting mine has finally arrived, got the Almanac and Delux set with tapes, booklet, vinyl etc :D

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine Tour 2020-2021

Been a minute since I posted here — wanted to say how fun the live show was! It was ambitious and worked out great! I think Momentary Bliss was my biggest highlight. It was everything that I needed it to be. Damn I can’t wait to see this live in REAL life. Yeah, Momentary Bliss really rocked, and S...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine Tour 2020-2021

Just finished watching tonight’s performance, great show, very ambitious, but they pulled it off. If I was to pick one high I would say Momentary Bliss or maybe Aries, although I thought valley of the Pagans was pretty cool with hologram Beck and loved the transmission from the Pink Phantom/Opium, a...

Just to say I've got my ticket for the Sunday show. Not sure I will actually get time to watch it but I like to support the chaps, it sounds like they're trying something interesting here.
Yeah I've got a ticket for Sunday too, really looking forward to this.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Mine was not a deluxe, but Warner basically said they didn't get the stock level they expected and apparently another email will be sent when they really do send it this time... Reading between the lines I think they sent dispatch emails so they could count the sales for chart positioning reasons. ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Anybody else still waiting for their deluxe edition? Although I have had copy and pasted replies saying they are looking into this, how can something dispatched in October (according to the email I received) can just have disappear and the company having no idea what’s happened?

Re: GORILLAZ ALBUMZ RANKED

2. Strange Timez - the closest Damon has got to matching Demon Days for quality for a long time. Could have been number 1 if it lost Chalk Tablet Towers (maybe with Opium included instead) I'll never understand why so people have a problem with Chalk Tablet Towers. Even Fantano and Brad Taste didn'...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Sorry to hear guys. My experiences of online ordering have been good and bad :) :( Like many here I ordered the Almanac + CD + circle of friends back in May when it was first announced. The circle thing has operated well - I've signed up for the live stream next month, and I nabbed O2 tickets last ...

Re: GORILLAZ ALBUMZ RANKED

1 Demon Days 2 Strange Timez 3 Gorillaz 4 Plastic Beach 5 The Now Now 6 Humanz 7 The Fall It may seem a bit soon to put Strange Timez so high but I think it’s one of Damon’s most complete albums of the last 20 years and I agree about PB being overrated, it has a handful of great songs, but I would s...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Into a week of listening to the album, my opinion of it has gone from a 7 maybe 8 to a firm 8. I think rather than the individual songs growing on me more, I'd say its more of the experience of listening to the album from start to finish and is a pure joy, I think the Damon presence and guest vocali...
