Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I've been trying to rank the songs from best to least favourite (I don't want to use the word WORST) and I'm having a lot of trouble. So far this is what I have: 1 - Lady Boston 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - Gun To The Head 11 - The Last Man To Leave 2-9 I'm having a lot of trouble with. :lol...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I agree with whoever said Last Boston is one of Damon’s most beautiful songs ever. Simply breathtaking.

Re: The Beatles Thread

Sixth Beatle? That’s a stretch. A great producer don’t get me wrong but all the work was done by the band and George Martin. Anyone can remix a track. Talking about a sixth Beatle is interesting though. If I had to go for someone I’d go with Billy Preston. His contributions during the Get Back sessi...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Just finished the album. Amazing. Simply breathtaking. The Last Man To Leave is the only song I haven’t fully warmed to yet but even then the album is a solid 8/10 for me at this point. Potentially 9/10 after a few more listens. This was worth waiting 11 years for. Wow. I think they should have rel...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I’m five songs in. Merrie Land and Gun To The Head sounding better and better with each passing song. Nineteen Seventeen is a warmer. The Great Fire has some incredible moments, wow. That descending chord progression is out of this world. Lady Boston is divine. I’m already half way through the album...

The Great Fire is spectacular. FUCK.

Rich - I'm in the US. Don't see it on iTunes Music yet. I'm guessing it'll be on at midnight.

Each song was just out on YouTube IN FULL. Official account! The only problem? Blocked on copyright grounds. Well done. Well fucking done.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

1917 sounds great. Friday can’t come soon enough! These clips on Instagram make up for the disappointing first two songs although I have a feeling everything will come together nicely on the album when played from start to finish. I’m not expecting the album to better the debut but it might come clo...

Hopefully a kind soul will post them here for everyone. Not that I'd condone such behaviour as a moderator, obviously. :shock: :mrgreen:

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Lady Boston and The Great Fire both released in the last 6 hours on Instagram. Excellent, excellent, excellent! One of these two songs (based on the clips) would have been a far superior choice for first single than the two they actually released.

Now, the question is - when will the album leak?

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I want to know who decides on which songs to release in full. Because the two they went for are crap compared to the ones that came out today. Two stunning songs based on the clips. I can’t wait to hear these in full. This is more like it!!
