Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Hello all....it's been a while since I've contributed anything to this board, but I need to say that I've come to feel after numerous listenings that MERRIE LANDis just a SUPERB album. Loved "Gun to the Head" when I first heard it as a single...was less enthused when I heard Merrie Land and the rest...

Re: My Official iTunes Blur Play Count

Lol....very funny and clever Damon008 There’s a perfect explanation for the Puritan and go out being so high in my top 5. The Puritan follows “Under the Westway” so given my infatuation with that the Puritan got a lot of extra plays by default. Was equally obsessed with Lonesome street when the magi...

I have to agree....it's a brilliant song. It really is.

I have to say, I absorb anything Blur/Damon put out and will play till exhausted and love it all.
I bought and listened to Humanz (deluxe) ONCE and it didn't give a second listen.

Re: Damon's thoughts On Radical Islamic Terrorism?

Yes, I believe Damon has said ISIS is similar to the cultural revolution of China ( I can't find the article), but that is about it. I'd like to hear him speak out against Islamic terrorism as well. I'm with you as I really do care about what Damon's views are about these things because it does tra...

Re: Damon's thoughts On Radical Islamic Terrorism?

Thank you all for your thoughts. I appreciate the time you took in sharing your views. Discourse is quickly becoming a lost art. This topic will not devolve into bickering or nastiness (at least on my behalf). You are right, as a dog owner myself, I initially paused when I used the word "dogs" to de...

Re: A thread for those disappointed by The Magic Whip

I am not disappointed with the magic whip and I realize that this thread is for those who are but I must say...I beg to differ. TMW is an amazing album...and yes I am a loyal, fervid and somewhat biased fanatic. Having said that....On its own merit it is an exceptional album.

Re: The Needle Drop's review of The Magic Whip

The Magic Whip is a FANTASTIC album no matter what time period the band would've recorded it.

It's wonderful, really. Don't care who the reviewer is, don't know, so whatever.

I LOVE the responses all of you have contributed!! All excellent choices thus far... My thoughts on your thoughts: Ong, Ong - could it be that the greatest Blur fans in the world (this site) have it right? The most recent Blur song being the most happy? Look no further than the 16-bit video game it ...

Re: Blur 'Converse' Show Live In Brooklyn, 1st May

As this amazing year comes to a close I want to revive the Blur Brooklyn thread for a moment. I was blessed to attend the show and was front and center. While I was also lucky enough to attend MSG, the boys' Brooklyn gig blew msg away in all regards. While I don't want to be accused of hyperbole, Br...
