Re: Is Think Tank an underrated masterpiece?

Any album with Crazy best, MPRBC and Gene by Gene on it can never go in the category of masterpiece. The album is littered with half finished songs and lyrically is one of Damon’s worst. Add to that the absence of Graham and sterile production. No chance it is a masterpiece!! That said, several grea...

I do the same mate, I find Tender a bit boring.

Re: fools day - blur best song as 4 men since 1999

Think you are over-rating it a bit, but fantastic song.

Always sounds fresh when I listen to it and as you say Graham’s guitars at the end are brilliant. Definitely under-appreciated.

Re: Think Tank is underrated.

I disagree, I think it is a really poor album. I think it is badly produced- I really didn't like Hillier's production the album feels so sterile. Songs like Ambulance and Good song sounded so much better live. Damon's lyrics are dire and half the songs sound unfinished. Also it has the two previous...

Re: Did The Magic Whip give you closure?

Good topic this. I really hope it isn't the last album, but if it is, it is a much better finale than Think Tank. I think a few songs aside, Think Tank has aged terribly. The only real issue I have with the Magic whip is as many have said, they played it a bit safe oh and the poor production of Pyon...

Re: The Great Escape: APPRECIATION THREAD

Mr Robinson's Quango is excellent, can't believe there aren't many others here who think the same. So underrated! 100% with you on that. Love the song, especially Graham's guitars. The outro is immense. Also a big fan of the album as a whole, nearly every song has something I love about it, Ernold ...

TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Looks like this could finally happening, although it is Damon saying it. Any new Blur material certainly looks a long way away at this stage, if there was to be any! http://www.nme.com/news/music/good-bad-queen-working-brexit-inspired-new-album-2043601 Update: See also these album-related discussion...

Re: Thoughts on the self titled album

This album is an enigma for me. I have never loved it and fluctuate between it being 7 or an 8 album. Strange because I like nearly all of it and love songs such as Beetlebum, You're so great,Death of a party and a few others. I have decided the reason I feel this way is because of the lack of a fee...

It's a really good documentary, watched it a fair few times, but not for a long time.

Re: A thread for those disappointed by The Magic Whip

Interesting topic. When the album came out the reviews across the board were positive; however they were not gushing. They were all 4 out of 5 reviews and 8 out of 10. Looking back now I think for once the critics got it right. I think it is a good album but it has got weaknesses which maybe affect ...

Yeah it was a better tribute than a super group would have been.
