Don’t like Smiley Smile that much. Pretty weak compared to the Smile Sessions, in my opinion at least. The sessions box set is how the album would have sounded and the differences are huge, especially Vega-Tables and Wonderful. Completely different.
I saw your posts in the Beatles Thread and wanted to jump in here. I think Pet Sounds is a great album. That said...I think Smile would have eclipsed it massively if it had been released at the time as Brian had intended. I was listening to The Smile Sessions box set th other day (on repeat!!) and m...
Not quite sure how it could age terribly. The production is spot on, certainly better than the debut.stephen wrote:It's interesting what we will think of this album in a few years time, it could age terribly or become a cult classic.

Yes, not preachy which was what I was worried about after the initial reports that Damon had written about Brexit. I was dreading that he'd gone full Bono on us.

I agree, NM. The songs are certainly no Brexit lecture although based on interviews leading up to the release, that's how the album was portrayed. Maybe management thought that would be a good way to sell albums? No idea, but dumb as hell. This album is an extension of the debut in regards to the fe...
Sorry if I sound like a naysayer, but could someone tell me a song on Merrie Land that they rate as highly as anything on GBQ's debut? I really want to like, I'm such a huge fan of Blur and Albarn but I'm actually hating this album. :( Lady Boston. Ribbons. The Great Fire. The Poison Tree. Nineteen...
If anyone can do it, he can. I thoroughly enjoyed The Force Awakens which in my opinion started this new trilogy on a high note. Yes, the plot was familiar. But it was entertaining and most important of all, it was STAR WARS. The Last Jedi wasn’t entertaining and it wasn’t Star Wars.
It’s worth mentioning how GREAT the album sounds. Tony Visconti did a wonderful job. I really hope we aren’t waiting another 12 years for their third album. Based on this album I’d be happy with no Blur for another few years if we get more albums like this one from this band and this producer. Pleas...
