Disagree, festivals like Glastonbury should be about bands, plenty of other events to see the likes of Taylor Swift at.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I don't think Glastonbury will happen - not again so (relatively) soon, and bearing in mind Gorillaz headline slot the year after too. I agree with you, it seems a bit too soon, has there been a Glasto headliner that was back so soon ( apart from Damon with Gorillaz) Rem headlined in 1999 and then ...

Re: Your Blur Album Ratings

I really like Optigan 1. I think it is a good closure to 13 after all the noise and then the heartbreak of No distance left to run.

I think it is a very dreamy, hazy and relaxing song.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Plans for these kind of things are always subject to change, but generally speaking if Dave says something it's well considered and usually safe to take as gospel. COuld well be that IOW or the BST thing included some kind of exclusivity clause/bonus Usually I'd agree, but it could be at that point...

Re: Your Blur Album Ratings

I'm baffled that some fans don't even have a 10/10 in their ratings. Well, you know...the "10/10 album" doesn't exist to me. For example, my all-time favourite album (Revolver, by The Beatles), it's 9.9/10, only because it includes Yellow Submarine. That's something I'll never understand, people be...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

So Glastonbury...... I know Dave said they weren't, but rumour is that the third headliner won't be announced until June as the artist has other dates going on. I imagine Blur would love to do Glastonbury again and the delayed announcement could be an agreement due to the British Summer Festival hav...

Re: Your Blur Album Ratings

Can you see a flaw in 13? Yeah, I don't like Tender and I don't think it fits on the album. I gave the album a 9.5. If Beetlebum was the opener it would have been a 10! I agree that it doesn't fit the album, but you don't like it? Come on, how can someone not like Tender??? Ok, well I like it live....

10 implies that the album is perfect/completely flawless.

I am yet to hear the perfect album.

Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

When 13 came out Nme gave it a 6.

In the nme blur special that was brought out a couple of years ago, they reevaluated the albums and it got an 8.

The original review was very negative!

Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

I just find it strange that apart from one review(Q?) not a single one mentions anything negative. So in theory if the album is not getting full marks there must be something wrong with it, yet no-one seems to be mentioning any flaws.

Strange.

Re: Under the Westway Taboo

It is very much a b-side thing for me, it is quite disjointed and although parts of it does have some merit, I'm glad it wasn't released. The auto tune is horrendous as others have mentioned and it doesn't really capture the emotion of the song. That said, although I'm one of the people who really l...
