Re: the Good, the Bad & the Queen - the end?

Some things are only supposed to be finite. I never liked them as much as I willed myself to, but they go out with a pretty tight little discography and a vibe of being well curated. That is an interesting viewpoint which I can't disagree with. Their songs don't jump out at me like many Blur (or Go...

Re: the Good, the Bad & the Queen - the end?

:lol: Who gets what gong has bugger all to do with the Queen! One of the Good - or more likely one of the Bad - will have put him forward... The quote I heard was; "One is deeply fond of the GBQ album particularly the song 80's Life (as one was in her 80s on its release) and the title track. Marvel...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Little bit slow but just realised the song machine theme tune is a complete knock off of the rainbow intro

Re: Blur fan first and foremost or Damon Albarn fan?

I always feel slightly disappointed when i learn that Gorillaz will put out a new record or start a new project. I got over that years ago but I know what you mean, Damon has done well to merge from being in blur full time to being in Gorillaz full time. He had us super fans convinced for a long ti...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

unreleased track with BECK just leaked!!! https://archive.org/details/gorillaz-ft.-beck-unreleased-track Can see why it didn't get released the vocal swapping sounds pretty bad Lots of people saying it's fake - what do we think? The opening lines flow very similarly to Feel Good Inc, and 'feels so ...

Re: the Good, the Bad & the Queen - the end?

Yeah I guess this would be the end, perhaps damon albarn would introduce another setup and call it something different? But maybe it's all too soon

I'm so grateful to see them live, I think it's up there with one of the best memories of my life

Re: Is The Great Escape the worst Blur album?

blur were always good with their choruses, tender has a catchy infectious chorus and it was probably worthy of a single in my eyes when you look at the rest of the album...ok maybe coffee and tv could have been the lead. I believe it was only beaten to number one by britney spears which was a massiv...

Love MIMR, never understood how black book was considered as the single for the best of release
i may miss the point here massively but it has a kind of tender version 2 feel to it, maybe that's what they thought they were going for

Re: The Great Escape = the code for life

I wasn't offended by it It kind of is a blue print in the fact that it was written about "stereotypical" english/britishness. Buy a lottery ticket, live in a big house, have a job that pays loads but you don't do anything for it, wife swapping, take drugs for depression, having money but not having ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I think Gorillaz is not for me anymore, I'm not impressed with these songs. I have enjoyed some tracks on The Now Now, but I don't like this Damon's project since Plastic Beach. To be honest, the only album I really liked it since PB have been The Magic Whip. You could even go back one further and ...
