Re: The Great Escape

To me Stereotypes is one of the best blur songs and the best singles from this album. So I don't understand why everybody hates it. TGE should have been 1- Stereotypes 2- Country House 3- Best Days 4- Charmless Man 5- Topman 6- The Universal 7- He thought Of Cars 8- No Monsters In Me 9- It Could Be ...

Battle of Britpop: Stereotypes vs Roll With It

Stereotypes was intended to be the lead single in The Great Escape. What would have been the result in that case?

Re: GORILLAZ: THE NOW NOW

This sounds much better as an album preview than Halleluyah Money...

I'll trust Albarn this time!

Re: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE QUEEN THREAD

It is indeed exiting that we've got a new GBQ album to look forward to (I'm not really fussed about The Gorillas unless there are songs of the quality of Last Living Souls, Melancholy Hill and Windmill Windmill). I just hope Damon has regained his ability to write wonderful melodies again after the...

Re: Damon's voice through the years

I think that has more to do with smoking and drugs than the age.

Damon's voice through the years

Damon's voice is getting worse live every year. He can't reach high notes anymore. So my question is, which is you favourite Damon's voice era?

Mine would be something between 1994/95.

I'm talking about live performances, not albums.

Re: Out of time, under the radar...

Out of Time is not even in my top 20 blur songs... To me it was the decline of Damon writing blur hits. Well... it was Music is My Radar first.

Don't get me wrong, I like these songs, but they aren't as catchy as the ones from the 90s.

Re: Old failed come back

That was a real pity. That would be interesting but I could only imagine Crazy beat's style of songs if it was really a punk EP.

However, I can imagine Damon bored of rock/punk music since Think Tank and probably that was the main problem.

Agree, best blur packaging ever! Even better than Parklife.

Re: The Great Escape: APPRECIATION THREAD

My first blur album. Love it, this was blur to me. I remember buying the "blur" album the second and dislike it because it was so different to TGE. Today is not my favorite album. However, it has so many great moments as the four singles, topman, it could be you, best days, globe alone... I agree th...
