Re: What pleases you most at the moment?

I've started playing the ukulele recently. They can attract some pretty irritating/wacky types but they are so much fun to strum, and much more portable than a proper guitar. Recommended! Last year I got the uke and enjoyed playing it a lot! I am more a keyboard guy, but ukulele is a fun and easy i...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

It is a bit of a shame that the album does not get the recognition it deserves... It is definitely one of the better releases by Damon in 2010s, and it is overlooked by both some musical journalists and listeners as well. At the same time, it doesn't seem that any of the band members care about this...

I’ll just say one thing... “The Poison Tree” is beautiful.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I grew to like “Gun to the Head”. The live version was lacking, it was very bland and Damon did not do a good job on the vocal delivery, but the studio track features more prominent orchestration, which I enjoy, and the uneven pacing of Damon’s vocals works greatly on the song. Roll on Friday indeed...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I like all the snippets (with Drifters & Tralwers uploaded just now) apart from The Last Man to Leave and Ribbons - I am now almost certain that it will be at least a decent record, but hopefully much more than that.

Re: The Beatles Thread

It would be fun if they’d release a planned “Get Back” album, which I think was even mastered, but later re-done by Phil Spector to become “Let It Be”... er - wasn't that Let It Be... Naked - the thing that Paul put out a few years ago? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_It_Be..._Naked" onclick="win...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

The division about this record is making me excited for whatever reason :) The material Damon has been making for the past 5 years has been kind of... safe, I’d say, more or less. So, while I’m not a big fan of Gun to Head, I think it provides some fresh perspective on what Damon songs/writes/compos...

Re: TGTBTQ: New single "Merrie Land"

I love it Can’t help but get some Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino vibe from it. Maybe it’s the way the lyrics are delivered I agree, it was quite reminiscent of the latest AM record, which I quite enjoyed. The song is not “single”-worthy, but I think that TGTB&TQ could be a little bit more experime...

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread

I listened to it yet again today. Meh. Some songs approaching decent, but overall it just doesn't stick with me at all. For me, it's the worst Gorillaz album by a long shot... even prefer The Fall to this. I like Plastic Beach MUCH more, and it's not even in the same galaxy, let alone zip code (for...

Re: What bands have you seen/going to see live?

Saw Metronomy yesterday - they had a killer set, all of Summer 08 was played, which was awesome! Happy I got to catch them on the solo act, and not on festival with the smaller set.
