Re: The Great Escape: APPRECIATION THREAD

It's definitely not Blur's Be Here Now, because 70% of it is solid. It actually does progress a lot from Parklife bar the singles maybe. Yes, good points. I like 'The Great Escape'. Perhaps 'Parklife' had the edge over it but I don't find it disappointing, and it was consistent with the previous tw...

If you're having Pleasant Education Jaime, I want Cross Channel Love and *whisper it* Orbit's Under The Westway. :P

Re: Thoughts on the MLIR Daisy Bell and The Strand covers?

I prefer to think that a number of strands came together to form 'Britpop'. Which became a coherent genre during 1994. This is what I believe as well. So many bands and genres led up to the explosion that really created "Britpop" in 94. Seconded. Music journalists and historians like to have neatly...

Re: The Beatles Thread: SGT PEPPER 50TH ANNIVERSARY BOX SET

It will probably be played at some point that day too... :lol: I do get where you're coming from with Sgt. Pepper. I don't agree in the sense that I'd put it in my top five, but it does have this aura as a cultural icon that rather disguises the fact that the collection of songs overall is not their...

Re: Favourite Blur album

It's still always between 13 and MLIR for me. TMW is vying with TT and Leisure in the bottom half of the table.

Re: New The Good, The Bad and the Queen album

TGTBATQ would be different with Graham, that's for sure. Better is a value judgement that depends on what you want from the project. I just wonder if Damon and Graham working together under that banner might nudge it just a touch nearer to Blur and I want TGTBATQ to be a totally distinctive thing. I...

Re: Thoughts on the MLIR Daisy Bell and The Strand covers?

I like albums that have changes of mood and texture and Ernold Same brings that to TGE. Solid part of the album, fits the theme perfectly. And that's coming from someone with no time for Ken Livingstone. :lol:

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread

Changing tack slightly, I'm disappointed to see that Gorillaz won't be making it onto this series of Later with Jools Holland (last episode is 2 June). Damon has such a strong track record of appearing on that programme with so many of his projects, more recently TMW, ER, Dr Dee and before that Plas...
