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

Any grounds to think this album will be a significant improvement on Everyday Robots? To me, it all feels like it did before that album came out. A couple of interesting songs previewed with Damon's usual imaginative arrangements. I've only listened to one song so far (Polaris) a couple of times, w...

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Yoga Town is fantastic.

Fresh and vibrant and something new sounding for Graham.

Much more intrigued by this album than Nearer the Fountain.

Does Graham still think 13 is Blur's weakest album?
Wow, I never knew Graham thought that! When/where did he say that?

It was one of the better top 20 song lists I have seen. I’d obviously change a few, but does capture a lot of what Blur are about.

Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

If I never heard Tender or Song 2 live again it wouldn’t bother me, but great to hear Clover over Dover!

Fantastic! Could something be afoot this year?

Gave me a real buzz that!

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I have to say this is probably my favourite piece of work by Damon since 13. Love it!

Demon Days is obviously very good, but I always prefer the melancholy.

Replaced Gun to the head with Magic City on my playlist for the album.

Sounds so much better.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I really don't like Gun to the head. Struggled to listen all the way through. Too cartoony and just sounds like a poor Madness song to me on the first couple of listens. Merrie land is a much better. Definitely lowered my expectations for the album. I do wonder whether Damon has just reached that st...

Re: TGTBTQ: New single "Merrie Land"

I really like it after a couple of listens.

Streets ahead of anything I have heard from Gorillaz in the past two years.

Can’t wait for the album!

My post above your post surely falls in to the in between category rather than loathing it?

I do like it, but don’t live it.

Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

I haven't revisited this thread in quite some time, but again I must show my absolute love for this album! It will never grow old to me whatsoever.... Still I get depressed when "Mirror Ball" comes on knowing it's the final track still yearning for more! The album hasn't aged too well for me. There...

Interview with Dave -2015

Enjoyable interview with Dave from 2015, where he ranks the albums and talks about the bands career.

I’m sure most have read it, but was good to re-read it.

If anyone is interested, here is the link.

Re: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE QUEEN THREAD

Listening to 6 music today, sounds like Steve Lamacq has heard the album. He sounded like he was very impressed, was suggesting that he thought it was a landmark moment in Damon’s career. Interesting to hear, as he wasn’t a big fan of The Magic Whip but has always been a big Blur supporter. Fingers ...

Re: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE QUEEN THREAD

Excited about this album. Really hope Damon is back on form.

I’ve found the last two Gorillaz albums to be a bit dull and uninspiring. I would include his solo album in thsat category.

Re: The Sky Is Too High Turns 20

Definitely one of his better solo albums in my opinion. Some great angst and melancholy on it.

Always loved That’s all I want to do and I wish.
