Re: Is The Great Escape the worst Blur album?

I like TGE but it isn't quite as good as its comparators MLIR and Parklife, though it was right for the time. I like 'Country House' - it worked well at the time and really took Blur to the mainstream audience. 'The Universal' in itself is quite epic, but over-familiar due to its use in the advert. ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

It's all been a bit meh for me, the stand out track for me was the first one; Momentary Bliss. Maybe i'm just at an age where I don't appreciate the current trends. I think there is some truth in this Stephen. It can get to a point, e.g. for those aged 35+, when you no longer get over-excited over ...

Re: Whats your favourite song at the moment

That was later in the day for Tears for Fears.

They didn't seem to attain the high chart placings with their early-mid 90s releases.

Re: WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!?

I have noticed more people around in recent days.
